Iranian students storm British Embassy

#1
Dozens of hard-line Iranian students have stormed the British Embassy in Tehran, pulling down the British flag and throwing documents from windows.
The students clashed with anti-riot police and chanted 'the Embassy of Britain should be taken over' and 'death to England' as they stormed the building.
Today's incident comes two days after Iranian parliament approved a bill that reduces diplomatic relations with Britain following London's support of recently upgraded U.S. sanctions on Tehran.

I think I'm right in saying that an Embassy is classed as Soverign soil.
The last time somebody invaded our patch, we sent a task force to sort them out. So all we need are a couple of carriers, some sea harriers and....







..... Oh wait...


Maybe we could send the outrage bus with a couple of blokes armed with shotguns and a strongly worded letter!

This sort of incident may become a trend for disaffected youth in the ME. Something similar happened to the Israeli embassy in Cairo a few months ago. Wherever next?

Iran's government, which ordered this attack, seems to be betting that further diplomatic isolation will buy them time to complete their nuclear weapons program. Like North Korea, they are sacrificing too much for one tool of leverage in the world. Losing trade and investment from the West for ANOTHER generation - as the Iranian hostage crises in 1979 cost Iran so much - is simply too high a price to pay for a nation of 85 million people desparate for jobs - not for another long war.
Civil war in this case, a lot of Iranians dont want this kind of shite, ring fence the boarders and let them get on with it!!
