Scotsman.com: Blair refuses to back Iran strike
TONY Blair has told George Bush that Britain cannot offer military support to any strike on Iran, regardless of whether the move wins the backing of the international community, government sources claimed yesterday.
Amid increasing tension over Tehran’s attempts to develop a military nuclear capacity, the Prime Minister has laid bare the limits of his support for President Bush, who is believed to be considering an assault on Iran, Foreign Office sources revealed.
As Flap said the first time: It is up to the United States and Israel.
The European Union including Britain have been fecking around with Iran negotiations for three years and have accomplished nothing. So, why would anyone expect Britain or any country in Europe to help contain Iran’s nuclear program.
Does this sound like British appeasement ala Neville Chamberlain with Hitler prior to World War II?
Is it disinformation?
But, Prime Minister Blair might wish to read this piece in one of Britain’s own newspapers.

The Iranian plan is simple: playing the diplomatic game for another two years until Bush becomes a “lame-duck”, unable to take military action against the mullahs, while continuing to develop nuclear weapons.
Thus do not be surprised if, by the end of the 12 days still left of the United Nations’ Security Council “deadline”, Ahmadinejad announces a “temporary suspension” of uranium enrichment as a “confidence building measure”. Also, don’t be surprised if some time in June he agrees to ask the Majlis (the Islamic parliament) to consider signing the additional protocols of the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty (NPT).
