Are the West and Iran Headed to War?


Recommended Posts

Israel National News:

Italy summoned Iran's envoy to Rome's foreign ministry on Thursday to express its "firm condemnation" of the storming of the British embassy in Tehran - leading some to suggest Iran and the West are on a collision course.

Rome announced it had also demanded security guarantees for diplomats during the meeting with Tehran's envoy, Mehdi Akouchekian. Italy, diplomats told him, may take further action.

Iranian protesters on Tuesday stormed and ransacked the British embassy and British diplomatic compounds after an apparently state-approved rally denounced Britain's support of U.S. sanctions over Iran's controversial nuclear program.

Iran subsequently denied it was behind the escalation saying a handful of protesters got out of hand, but Western diplomats have dismissed Tehran's claims saying it had intentionally sought a "dramatic piece of political theater."
