Admiral Mike Mullen’s warns the West over military strike against Iran
Posted by alanmirs on July 4, 2008
There are two ways of interpreting this week’s warning by America’s top military officer, Admiral Mike Mullen, that opening a new front in the Middle East by launching air strikes against Iran’s nuclear facilities would be "extremely stressful"
Senior military officers, whether in Britain or America, specialise in the art of understatement, and what Mr Mullen means by "extremely stressful" is what most laymen would take to be "catastrophic".
Iran has allowed IAEA inspections whereas Israel steadfastly refuses inspections of its arsenal.
Iran has not started a war with its neighbours for over a century; Israel has attacked – often `pre-emptively’ – its neighbours numerous times in its short sixty-year statehood
