Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey said Tuesday that the United States can successfully attack Iran, if necessary. His biggest worry is that Iran will “miscalculate our resolve.
Dempsey, speaking to CNN during a worldwide tour, spoke one day after Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta warned that the American government will not allow Iran to produce a nuclear weapon. He said that if Iran continues to enrich high-grade uranium, it could produce a nuclear weapon within a year, an estimate formerly given by Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak.
“My biggest worry is they [Iran] will miscalculate our resolve,” Dempsey said in Afghanistan. “Any miscalculation could mean that we are drawn into conflict, and that would be a tragedy for the region and the world.”
Besides repeating the often-used phrase“ all options are on the table,” General Dempsey went one step further and declared, “I am satisfied that the options that we are developing are evolving to a point that they would be executable if necessary.”
It was the most blatant warning made regarding Iran’s growing nuclear threat.
