Commenting on today's Chatham House report, which says that Iran's influence in the Middle East has been bolstered by the 'war on terror', Leader of the Liberal Democrats, Sir Menzies Campbell said "This report comes as no surprise. Intervention in Iraq was always bound to carry unintended consequences. Iran's belligerence over Israel and nuclear weapons is a clear indication of the extent to which it feels strengthened. The White House and Number 10 Downing Street have a grave responsibility."
