With talk of impending war against Syria, all eyes are on the British government and how they, along with their allies, will act next.

Russia has sternly warned Britain and the US against attacking Syria, with president Vladimir Putin warning of catastrophic consequences if they follow through.

Prime Minister David Cameron cut short a holiday and returned to London in order to prepare for a meeting on Wednesday with the UK’s National Security Council.

Britain has already been heavily supportive of the militants fighting the Syrian government, but with little success to show for it, they are now looking to escalate the crisis in order to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad.

Cameron gave an interview Tuesday saying that it was a developing situation but that the UK shouldn’t stand by. He confessed that he couldn’t be 100% certain that the Syrian govt used the weapons but claimed that Damascus had used them before and said that the militants didn’t have the capability or motive to use them. He also made a startling claim that this wasn’t about the Syrian conflict or Middle East but deterring the use of chemical weapons in the future.

And following huge pressure from MPs from all three major parties to let parliament debate the prospect of attacking Syria, the prime minister recalled parliament for an emergency session to be held on Thursday.

Thursday’s Commons vote on the issue won’t be legally binding. MPs are worried about the consequences of military intervention and with the public still angry about the lies, which led to the invasion of Iraq, public opinion is firmly against any British involvement in Syria.

Ahead of the debate in parliament, David Cameron is gambling that MPs will agree with his assessment that the Syrian government was responsible for the attack in Ghouta near Damascus. If they don’t and he launches an attack anyway it would be an extraordinary flouting of Parliament’s authority and a complete disregard of the British public’s mood.

UK moves to gag radical preachers,as Islamphobia Runs Wild

The UK Prime Minister has announced an anti-terror task force to clamp down on the “poisonous narratives” of radical preachers who target recruits in schools, jails and mosques. However, some fear the government’s efforts could actually worsen extremism.

According to the Daily Mail, the unit was launched by Prime Minister David Cameron in the wake of the brutal murder of Lee Rigby, a 25-year-old drummer in the British Army. Rigby was beheaded in southeast London’s Woolwich neighborhood by two men who said the murder was motivated by the UK’s involvement in the Afghanistan and Iraq wars.

The Tackling Extremism and Radicalization Task Force (TERFOR) will be composed of key Cabinet ministers, including Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, Home Secretary Theresa May and Chancellor George Osborne, as well as Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe and Director General of the Security Service Andrew Parker.

“We are looking at the range of powers and current methods of dealing with extremism at its root, as opposed to just tackling criminal violent extremism. And we will look at ways of disrupting individuals who may be influential in fostering extremism. We cannot allow a situation to continue where extremist clerics go around this country inciting young people to commit terrorist acts. We will do everything we can to stop it,” an unidentified source told the Daily Mail.

TERFOR will study a number of young people who have become radicalized, like Rigby’s murderers, the newspaper reported. The source stressed that “there is no question of restricting freedom of speech — this is about preventing people spreading the message of extremism and radicalization in a totally irresponsible and reckless way.”
