Iran has threatened retaliation against Britain and America after claiming their intelligence services masterminded an attack on its Revolutionary Guard leadership.
In an escalation of tensions, the head of the Revolutionary Guard, General Mohammad Ali Jafari, said his security officials had documents linking Britain and America to Jundullah, the militant group which claimed responsibility for the suicide bombing on Sunday.
Seven senior Guard officers were among at least 42 officials, bystanders and tribal leaders to have been killed.
"Behind this scene are the American and British intelligence apparatus, and there will have to be retaliatory measures to punish them,"
Iran Monday accused Pakistan, Britain and the United States of aiding rebels behind a bomb attack on the elite Revolutionary Guards that killed dozens, as angry commanders vowed a "crushing" retaliation
Iran's negotiators have toughened their stance on the nuclear programme, signalling that Tehran will refuse to go ahead with an agreement to hand over 75 per cent of its enriched uranium.
The move came as Iranian officials held talks with representatives of America, France and Russia in Vienna. An earlier meeting in Geneva on Oct 1 had yielded an agreement which some saw as a possible breakthrough.

Great Find S&F.
This whole thing is getting more and more fishy. Oh how this just seems like the relative calm before the storm. I would hate to go to war with Iran.
Blow back in action my friends. We should have gotten involved in Iran in the first place.

Unbelievable ignorance and arrogance is your belief that America would pick this moment in history to provoke Iran...
From a strategic view now is the worse possible time to mount a new offencive... our troops are already over extended, bordering on a serious manpower shortage... there have been major delays in acquiring new equipment... the list is endless...
