Is that the best he can do to 'ease' overstretch in the Armed Forces?Telegraph said:Iran attack possible, says Cameron
A pre-emptive military strike against Iran involving British troops could be launched under a Conservative government after David Cameron yesterday refused to rule out the use of force against the Gulf state.
Mr Cameron said it would be wrong for a future Tory administration to rule out an attack on Iran. "It's not sensible to rule all these things out in advance however much you want to avoid them."
Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, he said that while Iran had a right to civil nuclear power it was imperative that the West stopped the country developing nuclear weapons. "Especially as the president [of Iran] has said that he wants to wipe the state of Israel off the map."
