UK Bombed Own Capital says Iran Cleric

TEHRAN, (Reuters) - A leading Iranian cleric said on Friday the British government could have orchestrated last week's bombings in London to stir up flagging enthusiasm for British military involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati, who heads Iran's top legislative watchdog the Guardian Council, blamed British Prime Minister Tony Blair and U.S. President George W. Bush for the growth of Islamic militancy.

'The other likelihood is that the British regime may have carried out the attack itself ... because it benefits most... They tell people 'if we don't fight terrorism, this will happen to you,'' the cleric continued.

Jannati's remarks echoed editorials in Iran's hardline press that argued the attacks smacked of a plot by the British government to justify anti-Muslim reprisals and military involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan.

If the Iranian Mullahs are saying that the U.K. may have bombed its own people, then it can't be true, right?

In a more sophisticated twist on the possible truth, if the Iranian Mullahs are saying this, then it may be politically incorrect for others in the U.S. and in the U.K. to assert such a possibility.

Even more of a stretch: Given that Khomeini & the Mullahs may have been installed in the late 1970s by the CIA & MI6 (& by Kim Philby at KGB, semi-paradoxically), then why do we assume that the Mullahs are not still sleeping with "The Great Satan"? Maybe we should ask Iranian intellectuals about this -- both inside & outside of Iran...

The politics of national control and of oil & energy control may make for strange bedfellows.

However, the politics of world domination may in deed be unbelievably kinky...

Imagining that "Mr. Bean did it" (alt173, above) may be very similar to what both Tony Blair and the Iranian cleric did: THEY ALL IMAGINED IT!!!

Where's the beef? Where's the evidence? Where is the proof? Maybe alt173 deserves to be on TV and in the newspapers just as much as the Tony Blair and the Mullahs?

Which group has more EVIDENCE and a better theory of the London Bombings -- Tony Blair & the G8, the Iranian clerics & the UK, or alt173 & Mr. Bean?

Mr. Bean & Alt173 get my vote, because Mr. Bean really can be that stupid. Tony Blair & the Iranian clerics may not be that stupid.

WHERE'S THE BEEF??? ... Where's the evidence??? ... Where's the proof???
