From the Telegraph (my emphasis):
Royal Navy vessels are being readied to take part in a possible series of cruise missile strikes, alongside the United States, as military commanders finalise a list of potential targets.
Government sources said talks between the Prime Minister and international leaders, including Barack Obama, would continue, but that any military action that was agreed could begin within the next week.In 2006:
The possibility of such intervention will provoke demands for Parliament to be recalled this week.
Conservative leader David Cameron has called for curbs on prime ministers' power to declare war or agree treaties without the approval of MPs.
Mr Cameron wants his party's democracy task force, headed by ex-Chancellor Ken Clarke, to examine the way ministers use the Royal Prerogatives. He wants more key decisions to be down to MPs, rather than the prime minister.No more needs to be said.
