White House military adviser Adm. Mike Mullen said on Sunday he was concerned that any U.S. or Israeli strike on Iran carried a notable risk of more turmoil in the Middle East.
"Right now I'm fighting two wars, and I don't need a third one," Mullen said, speaking of U.S. military engagements in Iraq and Afghanistan. But he quickly added the U.S. military would be capable of handling another front.
Mullen said he believed the Iranians are intent on building nuclear weapons
Memo to Admiral Mullen: "believing" is not knowing.
It is amazing that Admiral Mullen can talk about "believing" Iran is developing nuclear weaponry when the IAEA is saying they have absolutely no concrete proof that Iran is developing anything more than a power plant.
And Admiral, one quick question, please: what will Russia be prepared to do to protect her geopolitical interests and financial interests?
That's something you and your counterparts had better darn "know" absolutely, and with great detail, if you and your Israeli counterparts are even thinking about striking Iran.
