Invading Iran. The Lib Dems have ruled it out. Does that float your boat?

or even get your vote? The Lib Dems opposed Iraq, the Tories and Labour were all for it. It's obvious to me the US is trying to make a case to invade Iran, probably with France playing Britain's role since getting Britain on board for a second war would be politically difficult and our troops are tied up in... show more or even get your vote?

It's obvious to me the US is trying to make a case to invade Iran, probably with France playing Britain's role since getting Britain on board for a second war would be politically difficult and our troops are tied up in Afghanistan for, by some estimates, at least 30 years.

Would I cast my vote to a party just because they say they will not be a part of an invasion of Iran? Yes I would.
