Prime Minister Tony Blair told lawmakers Tuesday that no military action is planned against Iran, but that international opinion is hardening against Teheran's nuclear ambitions and what he described as its interference in conflicts across the Middle East. Iran has been widely criticized for links with Hizbullah in Lebanon, Hamas in the West Bank and Gaza, and Shi'ite militias fighting coalition forces in Iraq. Iran "is trying to prevent reconciliation across the region, and I think that is very shortsighted and very foolish," Blair told the House of Commons' Liaison Committee.
