Don’t bomb Iran, Bush warns Israel

Wednesday, July 2nd 2008, 9:47 PM

President Bush and the top U.S Military commander warned Israel Wednesday against bombing Iran, suggesting the U.S doesn’t want to get involved in a third war.

“This is a very unstable part of the world and I don’t need it to be more unstable,” Adm. Mike Mullen, the Joint Chiefs chairman, said at a briefing.

Bush said, “I have made it clear to all parties [including Israel] that the first option is diplomacy,” in getting Iran to stop enriching uranium that could be used for a nuclear weapon.

The warnings came after the disclosure that Israel had conducted air operations over the Mediterranean that could simulate a strike on Iran.
