`Military strikes can`t halt Iran`s nuclear program`
Washington: The recently retired chief of US Central Command has claimed that Iran`s nuclear program cannot be stopped by either the US or Israel military.
Retired Marine General James Mattis said that even successful military strikes would only destroy and block the entrances to hardened underground nuclear facilities, the Washington Times reports.
According to the report, a military strike by the US or nations in the region could only temporarily delay Iran`s program.
General Mattis further added that diplomacy is the only long-term solution for stopping Iran`s nuclear program.
