British officials gave warning yesterday that America's commander in Iraq will declare that Iran is waging war against the US-backed Baghdad government



A strong statement from General David Petraeus about Iran's intervention in Iraq could set the stage for a US attack on Iranian military facilities, according to a Whitehall assessment. In closely watched testimony in Washington next week, Gen Petraeus will state that the Iranian threat has risen as Tehran has supplied and directed attacks by militia fighters against the Iraqi state and its US allies.

Today the London Telegraph reported that “British officials gave warning yesterday that America’s commander in Iraq will declare that Iran is waging war against the US-backed Baghdad government. A strong statement from General David Petraeus about Iran’s intervention in Iraq could set the stage for a US attack on Iranian militiary facilities, according to a Whitehall assessment.”

I think this week is going to see some stark escelations in Iran-US confrontations.

With the recent Basra Battle, US Troops being killed recently by rocket attacks, and now supposid links from rockets to Iran... I feel the ball started rolling last week.

This is why the US should have talked with Iran before spouting that ridiculous "Axis of Evil" rubbish. Of course Iran is getting involved - if North Korea invaded Mexico and Canada, you can be sure the US would do everything it could to affect the outcome. This is exactly the same, with the US replacing North Korea, and Iraq and Afghanistan replacing Mexico and Canada. If diplomatic ties could have been maintained since 9/11, Iran could have been on our side. But that door was closed, so now the only way for Iran to affect its neighbours (and borders) is militarily. Iraq, for us, was a folly of a war. For Iran, it was the destabilisation of their next-door neighbour.
