RICHARD BEESTON: BRITAIN PUSHES FOR MILITARY OPTION TO RESTRAIN TEHRAN
I quite agree..............
BRITAIN is pressing for a United Nations resolution that would open the way for punitive sanctions and even the use of force if Iran were to refuse to halt its controversial nuclear programme.
In a confidential letter obtained by The Times, a leading British diplomat outlines a strategy for winning Russian and Chinese support by early summer for a so-called Chapter VII resolution demanding that Iran cease its nuclear activities.
If the Government in Tehran refused to comply with such a resolution, the UN Security Council would be legally compelled to enforce it.
The strategy marks a significant hardening of the Government’s position.
Strangely though, Condoleezza Rice confident Russia and China will agree with United States and European Union on pressuing Iran. That, in the face of Russia will not back U.S.-proposed draft statement on Iran - Lavrov(Part 2)
Oh yeah and one more thing, WTF is this?
