U.S. And U.K. Divide Increases On Iran


Britain’s refusal to go along with the Trump administration’s fiery approach to recent Iranian aggression has experts and lawmakers concerned about the state of the “special relationship” between two historically close allies.

The United Kingdom on Monday shunned the United States’ call for a multi-nation effort to protect non-Iranian ships in the Persian Gulf, despite the fact that the country had its own oil tanker seized in the region.

The country instead opted for an increase in its military presence in the region, a troubling development to those who have long worked on and tracked the relationship between the two NATO allies.

“It’s a terrible sign that the U.S. and its closest allies can’t work together on something this basic,” said Ilan Goldenberg, a former State Department official who is now a Middle East and Iran expert with Center for a New American Security.


Ahhhh, no one wants play silly neocon/tel aviv games anymore. Boo Hoo!
