Gaffe Prone Prime Minister David Cameron says Iran has got a nuclear weapon, howlers are becoming a habit with him
All that money spent on his education and David Cameron turns out to be gaffe prone as the rest of us.
Oxford educated mind you.
His latest howler, after his famous America entered the war in 1940 is mistakenly claiming Iran has a nuclear weapon.
The exact wording of this gaffe came when asked why he was backing Turkey to join the EU.
He spouted that it could help solve the world's problems:
"like the Middle East peace process, like the fact that Iran has got a nuclear weapon".
Turkey’s entry to the European Union will do nothing of the sort.
Later on in an attempt to dampen the fire a No 10 source said the PM "misspoke".
This country when to war with Iraq on the lie that they had WMD, lies and misspeak has a life of their own if allowed to go unchecked.
The jist of the withdrawal was saying Cameron was talking about Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons.
Labour Shadow Europe Minister and clown Chris Bryant MP said:
"This is less of a hiccup, more of a dangerous habit. Considering Iran's nuclear ambitions constitute one of the most important foreign policy challenges facing us all, it is not just downright embarrassing that the prime minister has made this basic mistake, it's dangerous."
The Iranians aren’t going to war over a storm in a teacup.
Cameron at present has made a series of gaffes, America, Pakistan and now Iran.
Iran is building a nuclear bomb, this represents a problem for the West, hence the withdrawal from Iraq and Afghanistan.
I suspect that long term plans are getting made for either a pre-emptive strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities, a land invasion or both.
The public would however be against a land invasion after the Iraq fiasco but land invasion remains on the table because in order to try and sell this to the public, they would have to do the humanitarian thing of trying to rebuild a post war Iran.
Not out of any real concern of the Iranian people but rather having an eye on the polls of the next election.
Britain will tag along behind the Americans.
War with Iran is on the agenda.
That is why the pull out of Iraq and Afghanistan, plans need to be drawn up and logistics put in place and the military need time to recover.
