Attack on Iran Remains an Option: Gates

US Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said today at a gathering at Whitman Air Force base in Missouri that military action against Iran remains an option if Iran continues to pursue its nuclear program. Whitman is the home to B-2 stealth bombers which would be used on any bombardment of Iran.

“This is not about changing the regime in Iran. It's about getting the regime in Iran to change its behavior, and its policies,” Gates added (AP, 20 November).
