U.S. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey said today that an Israeli attack would delay but probably not destroy Iran’s nuclear program. "I don't want to be complicit if they [Israel] choose to do it," Gen. Dempsey said.
Demsey’s latest remarks reinforce Washington’s opposition to unilateral Israeli action. He added that sanctions against Iran should be given a chance to work. International coalition applying pressure on Iran "could be undone if [Iran] was attacked prematurely," the general warned. (The Guardian, 31 August)
