Report Warns Attack on Iran Could Lead to ‘All-Out Regional War’


A new report from The Iran Project and signed by a who’s who of foreign policy heavy weights, including Sen. Chuck Hagel, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Richard Armitage, Brent Scowcroft, and Adm. William Fallon, warns that an attack on Iran could “produce serious unintended consequences that would significantly increase all of these costs and lead, potentially, to all-out regional war.” This adds to a series of reports that have warned of the consequences of such an attack.

Jasmin Ramsey at LobeLog writes that “ensuring that Iran never gets a nuclear weapon would require an ‘expanded air and sea war over a prolonged period of time, likely several years,’ argues the report, which has been authored, signed and endorsed by a bipartisan group of high-profile senior national security advisers, experts and diplomats. Unilateral action by Israel is unlikely to substantially set back Iran’s nuclear program or destroy all of Iran’s nuclear sites, states the paper, which is based on a ‘wide range of expert opinion’.”
