Britain has accused Iran of responsibility for explosions which have caused the deaths of all eight UK soldiers killed in Iraq this year. A senior British official, briefing correspondents in London, blamed Iranian Revolutionary Guards. He said they provided the technology to a Shia group in southern Iraq. The Iranians had denied this, he added. While UK officials have hinted at an Iranian link before, this is the first specific allegation to be made.
They may feel there is little to lose right now by making such accusations, given that diplomatic relations are already low following the breakdown of talks over Iran's nuclear programme, says the BBC News Website's world affairs correspondent, Paul Reynolds.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the technology had come from Hezbollah in Lebanon via Iran and produced an "explosively shaped projectile".

He said that dissidents from the Mehdi army, a militia controlled by the radical Shia cleric Moqtada Sadr, were suspected of carrying out the attacks.

One of their leaders, Ahmed al-Fartusi, was arrested by British forces recently and was "currently enjoying British hospitality", as the official put it.

Are Iran realy behind the attacks on British troops???

Or is this just yet another ploy by the US/UK to turn the public against Iran?

If Iran is involved in the slightest then i would support an attack on them, otherwise id think it best we stayed well away until the mess in Iraq is sorted!

Israel says "Destroy the Nuclear Facilities or we will."

The United Kingdom says; "How many bombs you want dropped?"

Oh I do love the World we now live in...
