A senior US military commenting on the possibility of his country's war on Iran like those launched in Iraq

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The US administration is not considering the idea of ​​a war on Iran like the ones it waged on Iraq in 2003, a candidate for chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Millie, has said.

Milie, who was nominated by US President Donald Trump at a hearing on Thursday in the Senate Armed Services Committee to consider his candidacy, denied that his administration was considering sending 150,000 troops to Iran, as happened during the war in Iraq.

"I prefer not to discuss emergency operations in open meetings, but no, I do not think anyone (in the US administration) is seriously considering anything similar to what you have just described," Milley said in response to a question from Republican Senator Thomas Coton.

"I do not know whether the war with Iran will happen, but its outbreak will undoubtedly have a significant impact on the distribution of the forces responsible for our defense priorities," he said.

The US military said that Iran had intensified its "malicious" activities in the recent period, but did not confirm that there is a need for the United States to take additional measures against the Islamic Republic, said: "I think the time will show whether it is necessary or not.Tension certainly increases, We will look at the situation in recent months.
