    The Iranians are backing themselves further into a corner by behaving this way, they have no respect for diplomats at all, I don't know who in their right mind would have an embassy there they have shown time and time again they have no respect for them.

    I figure the protesters went a little further than was intended by the Ayatollahs. Maybe not since the British are seen as paper tigers by Iran.

    Still it is a disturbing event that Assad may try in Syria.

    Good thing we closed down our embassy and evacuated our staff out of Syria than.

    Since Assad has said that the Arab Leagues decision to impose sanctions is an act of war I was thinking he might have rioters take over fellow Arab embassies. I think most western nations have evacuated Syria although the Russians are still there but they are Syria's only friend now. (maybe the Chinese too)

    Oh I am soooooooo fed up with this testosterone posturing

    Storming of British embassy in Tehran worsens bilateral relations | Politics | The Guardian

    We have already banned anyone from doing any business with them from the UK. I don't know how much business we have with them but it sounds pretty severe particularly as it is not even known if they are making nukes.

    In the UK we are now going to make twice as many public sector workers redundant as originally planned as Con's coalition plans for recovery have got absolutely nowhere, we are cutting the salaries of those left in real terms, we are cutting their pensions in real terms we are freezing working class credit and we have been told this might just go on ...forever, so I guess maybe they are thinking a little killing in Iran may take people's thought's away.

    Yes, a commotion but thankfully no one was hurt. By banning all trade with Iran we have effectively stopped all communications with them so bring our staff home and get back to the proper business of providing a country fit for decent people to live in rather than childishly going off in the huff to kill thinking it makes you big and people will forget the situation here.

    This is appalling.

    Heck, I'll even stand by Yukon over this!
