At least our Intelligence services give more thought to what is happening than our politicians. Both Labor and Liberals are so keen to follow a US/Israeli line that I, for one, am relieved that our intelligence services check the facts. Re the Saudis and others wanting Iran blasted, their leadership only want Iran nuked, the people of those countries would have a better view. Please note: Iran wants deterrence. Their history tells them to be wary of the Us/Israel. The removal of Prime Minister Mosaddegh and the placing of a Puppet Shah on the throne gives Iran every reason to suspect the United States of Israel and the UK. Such a correct suspicion necessitates a deterrent.
