Former US commander warns of Iran attack risks

A former US military commander warned Wednesday that a potential US strike against Iran would take weeks and probably only set back the country's nuclear program by several years.


Admiral William Fallon, the former head of US Central Command which covers the Middle East, noted that Israel, which has not ruled out military action, has less capability than the United States and would face a more difficult task than in 1981 and 2007 when it secretly bombed nuclear sites in Iraq and Syria.
