The U.S. military is ready to act immediately should President Barack Obama order action against Syria over a chemical weapons attack, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said in a television interview with the BBC on Tuesday.

“We have moved assets in place to be able to fulfill and comply with whatever option the president wishes to take,” Hagel said during a trip to Brunei, according to a partial transcript provided by the BBC.

Asked if the U.S. military was ready to respond just “like that,” Hagel said: “We are ready to go, like that.”

U.S. allies were drafting plans for air strikes and other military action against Syria on Tuesday, as President Bashar Assad’s enemies vowed to punish a poison gas attack that Washington called a “moral obscenity”.
