US Top Brass To Rein In Israel Over Iran [View all]

Posted January 20, 2012 09:04:59

In diplomatic speak, it is a dialogue on security. From the outside, it looks like the US hosing down Israel over Iran and its nuclear threat.

America's top military commander has flown to Israel for talks with prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, focusing on Iran's nuclear program and its threat to close the Strait of Hormuz.

Reports continue to emerge that Israel is preparing to attack Iran's nuclear facilities, and General Martin Dempsey's visit is being seen by some as a move to pull Israel into line.

Meanwhile Iran's foreign minister, who has been visiting Turkey, says his country is ready to resume talks with the West.
