US to Prevent a Nuclear Iran

The US government vowed today to do “what has to be done” to prevent Iran from having nuclear weapons. White House Spokesman Robert Gibbs explained the Washington policy.

"We think it's important to do what has to be done in order to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon," said Gibbs.

The New York Times had reported earlier that the US is ready to cut off Iran’s gasoline imports if the county’s uranium enrichment issue could not be resolved through negotiations.

Gibbs declined to comment specifically on the New York Times report. During the US presidential campaign, Candidate Obama had pledged to stop gasoline import to Iran to force the Iranians to end their enrichment program.
