>>The prime minister believes the two states should be warned of the consequences of failing to help. <<

That's a really good approach, that'll help a lot. Either he's just being dumb and thinks threats will work with Iran and Syria - despite, what, twenty odd years of evidence to the contrary, or he's just mouthing the right words to try and realign himself to the new changes in Washington.

Personally I'd say both.

My thoughts exactly. Bit late isn't it Tony?

Oh I don't know. Taking the ultra successful rehabilitation of old enemies in NI as an example, it won't be long before Tony is telling us all that Hamas and the Iranians ( I can't remember how to spell the Pres's name and can't be arrsed to look it up) are such a fine body of upstanding men and how we have misjudged them all along. :roll:

God that man gives me the screaming sh1ts.

The cheek of the git! He tries to seek their assistance whilst all the while issuing empty threats.
Well the Iranians have already and rightly told him to 'f'uck off, sonny.'
Least ways I think that's what they said but my farsi is a little rough.

Our beloved 'World Statesman', bet the world stopped in Iran and Syria to listen to this outstanding Leader and his judgement of Soloman.

But Mr Bush, who met Mr Olmert in the White House just after hosting Mr Baker and Lee Hamilton, the former Democratic congressman, appeared to rebuff Tony Blair's call to use channels to Iran and Syria. He said brusquely that he had "not seen" Mr Blair's speech.

Looks like even the master has grown tired of its plaything.

I am confused - not for the first time I hear you all say.
I thought Brown was Prime Minister and Beckett was Foreign Secretary. What is Bliar doing making speeches. I thought he was in prison or something.
"Tough on foreign affairs; tough on the causes of foreign affairs" I say.
If it didn't affect our lives in every way and it wasn't so dangerous, this disreputable government would be funnier than 'Fawlty Towers'.
