British Prime Minister David Cameron has joined the US and Israeli regime in their Iranophobia tirade in the build-up to a possible invasion of Iran.
Cameron told the lower house of the British parliament that Iran is developing nuclear missiles capable of hitting London, British media reported.
The accusations had echoes of the run-up to the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003, when then prime minister Tony Blair wrongly claimed that Iraq had the ability to launch a chemical weapons attack on British bases in Cyprus within 45 minutes of an order from Saddam Hussein, the executed Iraqi dictator.
Tony Blair’s claim was later revealed to be a hollow allegation, based on which the US and its main ally Britain ‘sexed up’ a dossier on the threat posed by the then Iraqi regime.
Iraq, a sovereign member of the international community, was invaded by the US-led alliance based on false claims, which later were exposed to be wrong. Later, the alliance failed to find any evidence of weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) in Iraq. But, it was too late and the country was ruined to pieces with hundreds of thousands of deaths and millions injured from both sides of the conflict.
Now, again, more than 10 years after that destructive invasion, another British Prime Minister is leveling same accusations against Iran, another sovereign member of the international community, in yet another plot to sell weapons and to cover-up internal problems and difficulties.
In a speech to British MPs, David Cameron used the same allegations in line with the Iranophobia campaign launched by the US and Israeli regimes.
He claimed that the Iranian government was trying to develop ‘intercontinental missiles’. And he repeatedly stressed that ‘military action’ against Iran was not ‘off the table’.
“I don’t believe that an Iranian nuclear weapon is just a threat to Israel,” Cameron said.
“It is also clearly very dangerous for the region because it would trigger a nuclear arms race but also it’s a danger more broadly, not least because there are signs that the Iranians want to have some sort of intercontinental missile capability. So we have to be clear this is potentially a threat much more widely”, the British premier claimed.
This is while that Iran, as a responsible member of the international community, has time and again reiterated the peaceful nature of its nuclear activities.
Meanwhile, the International Atomic Energy Organization (IAEA) as the UN nuclear watchdog has repeatedly verified the non-diversion of Iran nuclear program in its reports.
