Parthian Shot, Part 2

British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw says he's "certain" there's no British or US plan for a pre-emptive attack against Iran and "the idea of a nuclear strike on Iran is completely nuts." I'd like to find this reassuring, but given the Bush Administration's severe allergy to telling the truth, and Tony Blair's penchant for obediently following Bush's lead, I can't.

Moreover, I'm sure that numerous members of the British government would have thought us "nuts" to invade Iraq.
