Military option on Iran 'intact' despite missiles: US

The delivery of Russian S-300 air defense missiles, missile launch seen here, to Iran will not affect America's ability to strike at Tehran's nuclear facilities if necessary, top US military officer said ThursdayThe delivery of Russian S-300 air defense missiles to Iran will not affect America’s ability to strike at Tehran’s nuclear facilities if necessary, top US military officer said Thursday. “We’ve known about the potential for that system to be sold to Iran for several years and have accounted for it in all of our plans,” General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, told a news conference. The United States for years has refused to rule out possible military action to stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons if diplomacy fails. Dempsey said the military option would not be undermined by Russia’s decision this week to supply Iran with the sophisticated S-300 missiles.
