Some senior US military commanders are prepared to resign if President Bush orders a military strike against Iran, a new report says.
"There are four or five generals and admirals we know of who would resign if Bush ordered an attack on Iran," The Sunday Times quoted Monday a source with close ties to British intelligence .
"There is simply no stomach for it in the Pentagon, and a lot of people question whether such an attack would be effective or even possible," the source added.
If proven true a revolt on such a scale would be unprecedented because 'American generals usually stay and fight until they get fired," said a Pentagon source.
Robert Gates, the defense secretary, has repeatedly warned against striking Iran and is believed to represent the view of his senior commanders.
Iran has announced that in face of any aggression it will respond like a 'tsunami'.
