Amb. Shapiro: US Prepared To Use Force Against Iran

Following Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address before the U.N. General Assembly, U.S. Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro told the Times of Israel that the U.S. has made “necessary preparations” for the use of force against Iran, saying, “We made it very clear that we’re going to do everything we need to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. That includes having a military option on the table.” Regarding Netanyahu and President Obama’s respective speeches at the U.N., Shapiro said the “overlap” between the two speeches demonstrates that the U.S. and Israel are “absolutely committed to the same goal” of preventing a nuclear-armed Iran.
