US not seeking war with Iran: top generalThe United States is not seeking conflict with Iran, the general overseeing America’s military involvement in the Middle East said Thursday, even as some Trump administration officials have stepped up rhetoric against Tehran. “I don’t think we’re seeking to go to war with Iran, and I don’t think that’s what we’re focused on,” General Joseph Votel, who heads the US Central Command, told Pentagon reporters.
