Gen. Patraeus in Israel: U.S. Must Keep Military Option in Iran Open


Former CIA director General David Petraeus told the Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv on Tuesday, “The U.S. must prepare for action against Iran, if necessary.” Petraeus commented, “I told Trump that we need to repeat what we want – for Iran not to have nuclear weapons and for the Islamic Republic to stop striving for a Shiite hegemony in the region. If you ask the Gulf states, their first problem is Iran, and only afterwards comes ISIS, Yemen, the Muslim Brotherhood, and then the Palestinian problem – which was in first place for many years.”

“The U.S. must declare that it will not enable a nuclear Iran, and that the American military will be ready for action in the region, if and when. In addition, the U.S. should work on a joint operation with its allies if necessary.”
