The threat to the UK from al-Qaeda is likely to have increased and the Iraq war has provided a boost to extremist groups, a committee of MPs has found.
The MPs said: "Military action would be likely to unleash a host of extremely serious consequences both in the Middle East and elsewhere, and would not be guaranteed to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons in the long term."
The government should not undertake or support military action against Iran "until all other options have been exhausted or without broad agreement" among its international allies," the committee said.
"Government should also make these points absolutely clear to the administration in Washington," the MPs added.
Comment: As I have stressed before, the threat is not only from outside but more so from inside as per my assertions "I am arguing that where there is no injustice, unfairness &/or inequality – there can be no strife, dissatisfaction, disappointment, disaffection, complaint or grievance."
It is also time to re-examine that special relationship with the USA; fast!
