Iran Warns UK about Troops in Iraq
Iran threatened UK troops in Basra, Iraq saying;
"We believe that the presence of the British military forces in Basra has led to the destabilization of the security situation in the city," Manouchehr Mottaki told reporters, denouncing what he described as human rights violations by British troops in southern Iraq. "The Islamic Republic of Iran demands the immediate withdrawal of British forces from Basra," said the Iranian foreign minister, speaking through an interpreter during a visit to Lebanon.Oh, gee. I guess the Iranian fighters there help the security situation?
