[efoods]JERUSALEM — The chairman of the US military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen, said on Sunday he was concerned about the consequences of any attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities.
“The outbreak of a conflict will be a big, big, big problem for all of us, and I worry a great deal about the unintended consequences of a strike,” Admiral Mullen said.
Apart from saying that “it’s pretty hard to be specific about” the issue, the top-ranking US military official did not expand on his comments.
Mullen, who was speaking to journalists during a visit to Israel, went on to say however that US President Barack Obama had been “very clear that from a policy standpoint, Iran cannot have a nuclear weapons.”
