Britain has accused Iran of responsibility for explosions which have killed eight British soldiers in Iraq this year.

A senior British official, briefing correspondents in London, blamed Iranian Revolutionary Guards.


news.bbc.co.uk...

I'm really starting to think that war with Iran might happen. I think we can all agree if that happens, WWIII is very probable.

Watch as the British press starts putting the spin on the whole Basra state of affairs, doing their job helping Washington to demonize Iran. Until recently the 'foreign insurgents' were all coming out of Syria. Now they're suddenly all from or supported by Iran and Hezbollah.


news.bbc.co.uk...
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the technology had come from Hezbollah in Lebanon via Iran and produced an "explosively shaped projectile".

He said that dissidents from the Mehdi army, a militia controlled by the radical Shia cleric Moqtada Sadr, were suspected of carrying out the attacks.

One of their leaders, Ahmed al-Fartusi, was arrested by British forces recently and was "currently enjoying British hospitality", as the official put it.

It was that arrest which sparked off an anti-British protest in Basra recently.

Thanks for the spin, Mr. "Anonymous Official", but the anti-British protest in Basra was sparked by SAS spies posing as Iraqis with a car full of weapons shooting dead a couple of Iraqi policeman, and then being extracted by British army tanks.

More spin:

Iran blamed as militias step up Basra violence - timesonline.co.uk
Tehran’s involvement may be linked to Britain’s hardening position on its nuclear programme.
[...]
The clashes and the arrest of two undercover soldiers was almost certainly triggered by the arrest at the weekend of Sheikh Ahmed al-Fartusi, the leader of the Mahdi Army, a banned militia loyal to Moqtada al-Sadr.

How about the arrest of the two "undercover soldiers" (whatever that means) was triggered by the fact that they were pretending to be Iraqis and shot and killed Iraqi policemen, and that a growing portion of the Iraqi populace suspect the coalition of carrying out false flag operations to incite civil war and unrest? Hmmm...



Britain blames Iran for Iraq attacks on troops - Reuters
Washington and London have long accused Iran of fomenting unrest in Iraq, but the allegations, made by British officials under condition of anonymity, were more detailed than previous public remarks.
[...]
While Iran's government has publicly denied it supports Iraqi militia, "there was some suggestion that this could be elements of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard that were involved."
[...]
British troops have come under attack several times in recent weeks, most notably in a riot after British forces attacked a jail to free undercover soldiers they said had been turned over to a Shi'ite militia by police.

More "anonymous officials". They sure get around don't they. I love the Newspeak where "spies" become "undercover soldiers", like this is some drug sting or something.

I used to think the British press were inoculated against this disease that is spreading through our media, but it appears I was wrong. Winston Smith is doing his job well, but some of us still remember...

Hold up people, Iran was the place that should have been invaded from the very start of all this mess, not Iraq. Dont let the situation in Iraq cloud our views of Iran. They have always been a threat to the west and they dont even attempt to hide it.

Not everything is a cover up, a conspiracy or spin. Sometimes things are just as they sound.

Yeah, sometime things are exactly as they seem. Israel is itching for someone to go to war with Iran, even if they have to be the catalyst to kick it off with an unproked attack.
It's not like they are are gonna be fighting the big fight....right? That's what all those Yanks and Brits are there for isn't it?

Actually, Iran is painting a target over itself by keeping their nuclear program in operation, having Iraq and Afghanistan surrounding it just makes it that much easier.

Bet they weren't a threat to the West when Mohammed Pahlavi was in power and ofcourse it didn't matter if he killed those that protested against him in the thousands...

One way or the other if an invasion against Iran ever happens, the world won't be the same anymore

So an anonymous official is needed to talk about something that is plainly obvious?

Not my news source Nygdan, dont look at me. But why not humor it as truth? At this point its is as much of a truth as it is a lie. Why automatically assume it ISNT true? After all: Iran has a documented history of this sort of thing...

Iran 'behind attacks on British'

This could have some kind of credibility, just as the credibility that the attacks were coming from Syria. They could still be, but Iran attacking the British cannot be ruled out of any equation here.

OK, they have begun nuclear plant construction, which is against what the NPT stands for if it's to build weapons etc. This needs to be nipped in the bud before it grows, for obvious reasons.

Just for the sake of another scenario, how about Afghanistan? Some of the British forces will be deployed there from November this year. How many Afghanistan based terrorist's have committed attacks against, not just the British, but the rest of the Western World?

The threads author has stated

I'm not sure if WWIII is imminent or probable. Too much is at stake if that happens. I would hazard a guess that Iran will be invaded to stop the building of Nuclear facilities.

Afghanistan?Well, thats another matter alltogether....


Lets concentrate on that quote by Dronetek, and why we all think it could happen. I for one, am very interested in the replies here.
