Iran sees little U.S. threat
by UPI

KUWAIT CITY - The head of Iran's parliament doubts the United States will launch a military strike against his country due to its troubles in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Concluding a three-day visit to Kuwait, Gholam-Ali Haddad Adel told reporters Sunday that a military action against his country is a "weak eventuality," the Kuwait News Agency reported.

"After its bitter experiences in Afghanistan and Iraq, the United States is unlikely to launch a military showdown with Iran," he said.

Adel was asked to comment on a threat made by Iran's foreign minister that the Islamic republic would target all U.S. interests in the gulf if attacked.

"If Iran was attacked by a military base in the region, it would be natural for the Iranian response to be directed to that same base," he said.

Adel said his country was prepared to defend itself no matter what happened.

He said the talks with Kuwait did not deal with Iran's nuclear plans.
