UK joins USA-Europe united front against Iran

Like it or not, PM Gordon Brown's Britain has not only joined the US-Europe united front against Iran but also committed to an increase of British troop level in the US-led war in Afghanistan, and there is also no implicit sign or explicit suggestion of UK's forces to be withdrawn from Iraq as speculated in the media prior to Bush's visit to London. How would this latest transatlantic development impact upon: (1) the stands taken respectively by US presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama and (2) the diplomatic positions of member states of the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC), is worth observing. However, what is already clear and certain is that the retirement of former British PM Tony Blair has not changed the very essential and fundamental relationship between Britain and the United States for the institutional links and ties between two of them are still strong.
