Tehran on Monday dismissed as thoughtless comments by a top US general that Iran’s atomic sites could be attacked if the nuclear issue remains unsolved, the official IRNA news agency reported.
“His comments are thoughtless and it is better that any statement made in this regard take a constructive approach,” foreign ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast was quoted as saying.
General David Petraeus, head of US Central Command (CENTCOM) that oversees the Middle East, told CNN on Sunday that Iran’s nuclear facilities “certainly can be bombed,” even though they are reported to be heavily fortified.
“The level of effect would vary with who it is that carries it out, what ordnance they have, and what capability they can bring to bear,” Petraeus added.
“When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.” – Fall Of The Republic – Buy the DVD here
