Germany would NOT join USA attack on Iran’s nukes

Germany Wouldn’t Join Military Action to Halt Iran Nuclear Aims, Bloomberg, By Indira A.R. Lakshmanan – Jan 13, 2011 Germany wouldn’t join in a military strike to halt Iran’s suspected nuclear weapons program even if the U.S. determined that such action was required, Germany’s deputy foreign minister, Werner Hoyer, said today.
“We are definitely not going to participate in a military action” to scuttle Iran’s suspected nuclear bomb program, Hoyer said in an interview in Bloomberg’s Washington Bureau. “This is something the United States will one day have to decide if the situation cannot be avoided, but we hope it can be avoided,” he said.

Germany is one of six nations, along with the U.S., China, France, Russia and the U.K., that have tried for several years to persuade Iran’s leaders to abandon efforts to enrich uranium and develop technology that may be used to build a nuclear weapon. Iran’s leaders say their program is for civilian nuclear energy production and medical research………U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said yesterday that technical glitches and sanctions have delayed Iran’s nuclear program, giving the U.S. and its partners in the United Nations Security Council and Germany more time to exert pressure without resorting to military action.
