“We Can’t Afford to Underestimate Our Potential Adversaries”
Ynet – Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff Army General Martin Dempsey told a Senate panel on Tuesday he did not counsel Israel against attacking Iran over its nuclear program. “We’ve had a conversation with them about time, the issue of time,” he said. Dempsey was referring to his most recent visit to Israel a month ago.
Speaking at a Senate Budget Committee meeting, the US general also defended his comment that Iran was a rational actor. “We can’t afford to underestimate our potential adversaries by writing them off as irrational,” Dempsey said.
