Britain made a second air drop of aid to refugees in northern Iraq, officials said Tuesday, as Tornado fighter jets were readied to provide surveillance support for the humanitarian effort.Britain is also preparing to deploy a "small number" of Tornado jets to gather information to help deliver aid to civilians fleeing Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) militants, Prime Minister David Cameron's Downing Street office said.A number of retired generals have been calling for tougher British action, including Gen. Richard Shirreff, who was Britain's most senior officer in NATO until March and resigned from the army last week.Any decision to take military action in Iraq, three years after British forces pulled out following an eight-year occupation with the United States, would likely require a vote in the House of Commons.
