Top officials of NATO and Britain said Thursday they had no plans to get involved militarily in Iraq, after Sunni militants overran much of the north and were pressing toward Baghdad.Top European diplomats were consulting with each other and U.S. counterparts over the deteriorating security situation in Iraq, with the cities of Mosul and Tikrit falling to the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria over the last two days.Britain and France said it was up to Iraqi authorities to deal with terrorism and worsening security, while Russia's foreign minister said the crisis pointed to the "total failure" of the U.S.-led military invasion of Iraq in 2003 . A totally different read on the situation came from Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, who said the rapid advances by the Al-Qaeda-inspired fighters proved the military invasion of Iraq 11 years ago had been a fiasco.
