Plans for a U.S. strike against Iran are “ready” and “fully available,” U.S. ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro said Thursday on Israel's Army Radio.
"It would be preferable to resolve this diplomatically, and through the use of pressure, than to use military force," Shapiro said, according to Reuters. "But that doesn't mean that option is not fully available — not just available, but it's ready. The necessary planning has been done to ensure that it's ready."
