Britain has rebuffed US pleas to use military bases in the UK to support the build-up of forces in the Gulf, citing secret legal advice which states that any pre-emptive strike on Iran could be in breach of international law.Well obviously a few well-placed Romney insults and they'll be on board again, right?
"The UK would be in breach of international law if it facilitated what amounted to a pre-emptive strike on Iran," said a senior Whitehall source. "It is explicit. The government has been using this to push back against the Americans."How dare they use the law, I mean really. American's know that Iranians want to be bombed! [cross-posted at Firedoglake]
