    Blair & Co want threat of attack on Iran in UN

    Although Blair & Co have previously ruled out an attack on Iran, according to this article, from the Times, they are attempting to push through a UN resolution which would threaten military action against the country:

    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. It contrasts with public statements by Jack Straw, the Foreign Secretary, this month. On March 13 he insisted that military action was “inconceivable” and that the dispute with Iran “has to be resolved by peaceful democratic means”.
