“The military threat the U.S. poses to Iran is a key reason why the Iranian nuclear program has expanded,” an analyst said, criticizing the statement.

David Petraeus as well as former Obama-era senior Pentagon official Michèle Flournoy asserts that “it is vital to restore Iran’s fear that its current nuclear path will trigger the use of force against it by the United States.”
