Sign "O" the Times

Not that I want a war with Iran, but if you're going to plan for one, it's nice to have the allies at least semi on board:

Britain has rebuffed US pleas to use military bases on its soil to support forces in the Persian Gulf, citing secret legal advice which states that any pre-emptive strike on Iran could breach international law.

US diplomats have also reportedly lobbied for the use of British bases in Cyprus and permission to fly from US bases on Ascension Island in the Atlantic and Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean, both British territories.

Churchill's bust could not be reached for comment.
