The British government is on record as being against
the idea of military action being taken against them (Iran and Syria ),
but many of the so-called hawks in Washington have made it pretty
clear that unless they change their ways, Tehran and Damascus should
be next in line for compulsory regime change.
The British will take heart from the more cautious voices coming out
of Washington. Lawrence Eagleburger was Secretary of State for Bush's
father, the first President Bush, and he and other leading veterans of
the first Bush administration warned last summer about the dangers of
attacking Iraq. In fact they were thought to be acting as
proxies for their old boss, who was said to be privately unconvinced
of his son's policies. Now that the military campaign seems to be
drawing to a close, we ask Mr Eagleburger if it is true that winning
the peace will be much harder.
In an impassioned interview, Mr Eagleburger also tells us that if
George W. Bush were to take military action against Iran and Syria, he
should be impeached.
