Britain, France and the United States set the stage for a dramatic confrontation with Iran as they revealed the existence of a secret nuclear site inside a mountain near the holy city of Qom as evidence of Tehran’s efforts to deceive the international community.

The coup de théâtre came at the opening of the G20 meeting in Pittsburgh after three days of intense diplomatic dealings at the UN General Assembly. President Obama, President Sarkozy and Gordon Brown took turns to demand that Iran disclose its nuclear ambitions and threaten new sanctions.

Britain was said to have played a leading role in the operation to expose the secret uranium enrichment plant, which officials say could only be used for military purposes.

Mr Brown said: “The level of deception by the Iranian Government, and the scale of what we believe is the breach of international commitments, will shock and anger the whole international community and it will harden our resolve. The international community has no choice today but to draw a line in the sand.”

well this has been on the news all day here in NY, surprised no one on here posted this yet after i did a quick search...everyone is so caught up with the protesters everyone overlooked the news that could very well start WW3.

They are asking iran to allow inspectors into the site, failure to do so will result in further isolation and sanctions.

This could very well be the straw that breaks the camels back, everyone remembers the Israel's threats to bomb iran and such from a few weeks back. Throwing fuel into a fire......soon its going to blow.

yeah i know,but think back to when UN weapons inspectors kept going to Iraq,it lasted years.Saddem kept messing them about until America and Britain had enough and without the support of the UN went in.
Maybe this time france and germany might actually be in support and the UN actually give the go ahead but doubt they will allow military action for some time yet if not at all.
Even though israel cant wait to bomb them,it will end up America and Britain and canada and australia doing the dirty work i fancy,with france and germany sending minimal troops as usual.
