WASHINGTON – US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton discussed on Wednesday the top priorities of US diplomacy around the world, saying that Iran wants to be attacked by somebody because it would unify the Iranian public and legitimize the Islamic regime.
However, Clinton clarified in an interview with Charlie Rose and Former Secretary of State James Baker, that the US is “serious that they (Iran) cannot be allowed to have a nuclear weapon.”
In an installment of “Conversations on Diplomacy,” which was moderated by Rose, Clinton made a series of harsh analytical remarks regarding the possibility of nuclear arms development in Tehran.
Baker and Clinton spoke about the necessity of preventing Iran from developing a nuclear weapon, noting that containment is not an option, and in the opinion of Baker, any military strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities should come from the United States because it is the only country with the ability to stop Iran’s program with force.
