Panetta: Iran will be stopped if it continues on nuclear path

Published: 01.08.12, 17:49 / Israel News

Days after US President Barak Obama's official announcement on major budget cutbacks to the US defense budget, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta is trying to send a massage of deterrence to Iran and the US' other enemies.


In an interview given by Panetta and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey to CBS News, Panetta made it clear that "our red line to Iran is to not develop a nuclear weapon. That's a red line for us."  When pressed whether the U.S. could "take out their nuclear capability" without using nuclear weapons, Dempsey said this: "I certainly want them to believe that that's the case."
