That's what former Bush administration top arms control official Robert Joseph told reporters at the Heritage Foundation yesterday. Iran has many retaliatory options, from using oil as an economic weapon, unleashing Hezbollah, to attacking U.S. installations in the Gulf, if it's hit from the air. Even if Israel carried out strikes, the U.S. would be blamed, he said. Because so many potential unforeseen consequences could result, Joseph said he was no fan of striking Iran.
