U.S. Has Plan To Strike Iran “Just In Case”
Adm. Mike Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, says we have a plan to strike Iran, even though he thinks it’s a bad idea.
Mullen, the highest ranking U.S. military officer, often has warned that a strike on Iran would have serious and unpredictable ripple effects around the Middle East. At the same time, Mullen said the risk of Iran’s developing a nuclear weapon is unacceptable, although he would not say which risk he thinks is worse.
“I think the military options have been on the table and remain on the table,” Mullen said on “Meet the Press” on NBC. “It’s one of the options that the president has. Again, I hope we don’t get to that, but it’s an important option and it’s one that’s well understood.”
Revolutionary Guard deputy chief says security in the Gulf will be threatened “if Americans commit the slightest mistake.”Click here for reuse options!
