Deutsche Presse-Agentur

WASHINGTON -- The United States has contingency plans to deal with Iran's nuclear programmes, the top U.S. military commander told CNN Sunday, in addition to diplomacy and sanctions.

While General David Petraeus, head of U.S. Central Command, did not elaborate on the plans, he said the military has considered the impact of any action taken there.

"It would be almost literally irresponsible if Centcom were not to have been thinking about the various 'what ifs' and to make plans for a whole variety of different contingencies," Petraeus told CNN.

However, he declined to comment when asked about rumours that Israel could attack Iran's facilities. Israel has repeatedly said that Iran's nuclear programme was a major threat to it.

Petraeus also said there was still time for world powers to engage Iran in diplomacy, adding that there was no deadline on the enactment of any U.S. contingency plans.

1. So? The military has contingency plans for almost everything.
I would not be surprised if somewhere in a file cabinet there is a plan for alien contact.
