Fearing a US strike on Iran during President George W. Bush's last months in office, a senior Iranian official has suggested the Islamic regime should target London to deter such an attack.
In an article on the Iranian Web site Aftab last week - translated by the Washington-based Middle East Media Research Institute - the head of the Europe and US Department in the Iranian Foreign Ministry, Wahid Karimi, said that an attack on London would deter the US from attacking Teheran.

I do not see anywhere in that article that Iran is calling for an attack on the UK. It says it is considering, "taking action," but that can mean any number of things from political to financial, and yes, possibly war. But there isn't even really a hint of attack toward the UK here.

Isn't there something like 35,000-40,000 Iranians living in London alone? If this report is true, I wonder what they think of Wahid Karimi?
