Much reading laterUK military steps up plans for Iran attack amid fresh nuclear fears | World news | The GuardianOne official said: "I think that it is fair to say that the MoD is constantly making plans for all manner of international situations. Some areas are of more concern than others. "It is not beyond the realms of possibility that people at the MoD are thinking about what we might do should something happen on Iran.

Partisan against Republicans...some.

Besides...the partisanship expressed by samsmart was directed toward Republican and Democrat...not Obama.
DiAnna, try to remain focused, eh?
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
