Gates: Military Strike Would Unite a Divided Iran

Tuesday, 16 Nov 2010 09:53 AM

Gates, in comments to the Wall Street Journal CEO Council, said it was important to use other means to convince Tehran against pursuing nuclear weapons and renewed concerns that military action would only delay -- not prevent -- it from obtaining such capabilities.
