Report: Arabs Pressing U.S. to Attack Iran

A number of Middle Eastern countries are pressing the United States to attack Iran this year, according to an intelligence report gathered from British diplomatic circles and cited by the Hizbullah-associated Al-Manar website on Thursday.

The report says Saudi Arabia is trying to convince President Barack Obama to attack before U.S. troops leave neighboring Iraq, in order to prevent an Iranian takeover of the Baghdad government.
