^ you kidding me? everyone knows Iran's intentions, its childish for this guy to come out and say otherwise. Lets not forget last week there was a secret meeting in the U.S. with an Israeli official (dont remember who) and some moron of a congresswoman spoke to the press about it.... I would say they are feeling as if the threat isnt taken seriously, at least thats what it sounds like.
Furthermore, if the U.S. really believed that Iran had no interest in producing weapons and were only intending on furthering enrichment for energy why in the hell would we be imposing sanctions? Its not really hard to see that this general is trying to just minimize the situation in the eyes of all parties involved.
