U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said that if diplomacy fails, the United States use military action to stop Iran from the possession of nuclear weapons.

- Military action is the final output, when all else fails. But do not be fooled, we will replace, if necessary - Reuters present a piece of the forum Panetty American-Israeli Political Action Committee (AIPAC), the main organization of the Israeli lobby in the U.S..

On Sunday, the eve of a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, as President Barack Obama, assured AIPAC means that the U.S. will not allow Iran, to prepare themselves with nuclear weapons, even if it required the use of force. He stressed, however, that the U.S. opt for military action only as a last resort and warned against - as - "chatter" about the war with Iran.

Netanyahu doubts the peaceful resolution of war with Iran on nuclear program of the country. - To date, neither sanctions nor diplomacy brought no result - said on Monday night in Washington.

During a meeting with representatives of AIPAC, Netanyahu repeated what he said a few hours before Obama at the White House - that Israel reserves the right to self-defense and future military action against Iran.

Obama does not rule out a military solution to war with Iran, but in contrast to Netanyahu still believes in the effectiveness of sanctions against Tehran and diplomatic activities.

Speculation about possible Israeli attack, on Iranian nuclear facilities, do not stop. Recalled by the Israeli air force bombing of Iraq's Osirak reactor in 1981 and the attack on the reactor in Syria, in 2007.
