From proxy wars in Iraq and Syria to computer worm attacks and unexplained explosions in Iran - to allegations of an assassination plot in Washington - a confrontation once kept behind the scenes is breaking into increasingly open view.
The storming of Britain's Tehran embassy last week - and the tit-for-tat shutdown of Iran's embassy in London - were just the latest signs that already limited dialogue is beginning to break down. That, analysts say, is inherently dangerous.
"With Iran, you have a government that is increasingly isolated and acting in increasingly unpredictable ways," says Jon Alterman, director of the Middle East program at the Center for Strategic and National Studies in Washington.
"There is certainly the risk that a country will take the deliberate decision to attack Iran. But there is also the risk that something happens that provokes... a war that nobody planned and nobody wants."
Caught with our pants down? The only thing the UK has done is shut down the Iranian embassy in London and cut our ties financially with Iran. The US has had a spy drone shot down on Iranian soil but I fail to see how the UK has done anything wrong on this matter.

Yep, I think the USA, UK and Israil will keep slowly turning up the boiler with more and more attacks until all out war is too obvious to deny. Isreal and the US want Iran really badly. Personally I think the US Governmemt terrorists are completely out of order.
US and UK have decalred Iran to be a terrorist based country but I have not seen I shred of reL evidwnce to the fact. But I can real off loads of terrorist activities by western countries. We have been lied to for so long and now the western governments, like mine in the UK, have been caught with thier pants down.
