IDF Chief: All Options against Iran Must be Prepared

Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi said today in Washington that all options must be prepared to counter Iran's nuclear program. Gen. Ashkenazi is holding talks in Pentagon this morning with Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Michael Mullen.

"We are all united over the understanding that Iran must not be allowed to acquire a nuclear weapon and that there is no doubt that diplomacy must be given priority," Ashkenazi said. "But we all realize, both the Americans and us, that all options must be prepared."
