    Sounds like relations between Britain and Iran are starting to strain.

    Sounds like this could be the first few steps on the long road to a possible US-led invasion of Iran. Think about it, Britain would have to abandon the peaceful approach towards dealing with Iran before it can take the forceful approach. :(

    Forget about invasions. That won't happen to Iran for quite a while. Not until the Iraq insurgency dies down. And I don't forsee that happening for a LONG time.

    The US or the Brits are'nt going to invade Iran. Israel has already strongly warned the US and UK that if their nuclear plans arent stopped the israelies would do it even if they had no international support. They are really nervous as the mullahs in Iran chant death to Israel and Death to America on a daily basis. I think the coalition forces will just over look the IsraelI air force flying over Iraq to bomb Iran and say but they were nothing we could do about it.

    US invading Iran? Probably not, although I believe that quite much of the money behind the Iraqi insurgents comes from different sources in Iran. Israel attacking the Iranian nuclear sites? Probably, as som Iranian leader explained abouta year ago, "Iran will survive a nuclear attack, Israel can not survive one". Israel is simply to small and Iran to big for any serious MAD threat to evolve out of this, so Israel will probably strike sooner or later with the air force (the F-16I's are really state of the art) or special forces.

    Problem is that Iran's nuke sites are all spread all over the place. Also, Iran has bought several batteries of S-300MPU. Iran has quite a few other SAM systems as well and even though they are old, they represent a huge threat to the IAF because the IAF would lose much fuel evading such systems.

    israels is being a big b##$$ by complaining. thay posses 200 nukes, and are the only power in the region that has em.
    isreal is bluffing. it may have advanced gear, but it just doesnt have the same support, leverage, or capability of iran. iran would almost immediatle get russian, chinese, and indian aid. iran's f-14s and mig-29s arnt bad either.

    i don't know about Indian aid, remember not very long ago, india just jumped on the bandwagon of accusing Iran's nuclear program. china's military relationship with israel is not bad, if the americans didn't try to stop military transfers between china and israel, china would have a lot more american military tech. russia, maybe, but they just don't have hte resources for such military actions, they also had to deal with chechneya remember.

    I think Russia is too interested in oil deals with Iran at the moment to
    allow America to destabalise the regime.

    For instance the new pipeline

    I think pakistan will oppose any russian involvement in it
