I am not sure whether the hon. Gentleman has kept up to speed, but in fact the United Kingdom has already imposed sanctions on military individuals, including the commander-in-chief and his deputy.

Let us be absolutely clear, the commander-in-chief and his deputy are the architects of this current crisis.
