Ex-US advisors: Iran attack ’disaster’

Ex-US advisors: Iran attack ’disaster’

Press TV

Two former senior White House security advisors have warned that a military attack against Iran would be a catastrophe for the US.

“If we get into a war with Iran, we know there would be disaster, we know there would be a disaster,” said Zbigniew Brzezinski, ex-president Jimmy Carter’s national security advisor on Tuesday.

“The United States will become involved in a four-front war, probably for roughly two decades. Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan and the Persian Gulf,” he said during a discussion at the Center for Strategic and International Studies on the negotiations between the United States and Iran.

The US accuses Iran of seeking nuclear weapons, insisting the country should either stop nuclear enrichment or face confrontation. Rejecting the allegation, Tehran argues its nuclear program is solely for peaceful purposes.

Also, advisor to presidents Gerald R. Ford and George H.W. Bush, Brent Scowcroft, said at the meeting, “Don’t talk about ’do we bomb them now or later?”

Both former advisors said only diplomacy backed by stronger sanctions and no preconditions for negotiations might work to overcome the current frigid US-Iran relations.

In a major shift from Washington’s past policy, the US Under Secretary of State William Burns attended for the first time in talks on Iran’s nuclear program in Geneva on Saturday involving Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator, Saeed Jalili, EU Foreign Policy Chief Javier Solana, as well as representatives from China, Russia, France, Britain and Germany.
