Three former high-ranking US military officers have called for Britain to help defuse the crisis over Iran's nuclear program, saying military action against Teheran would be a disaster for the region. In a letter to the Sunday Times, the three former officers urged US President George W. Bush to open talks, "without preconditions," with the Iranian government in a bid to find a diplomatic solution. The signatories were retired Lt. -Gen. Robert G.

Hoar, former head of US Central Command; and Vice Admiral Jack Shanahan, former director of the Center for Defense Information.
