NEW YORK (Wed, Sep 26) - U.S. President Barack Obama yet again cleared U.S. stance over Iran's nukes on Tuesday saying that his country will do anything possible to prevent Iran being a nuclear power as nuclear-armed Iran would be dangerous for Israel, ignite a regional arms race and destabilize the global economy.

Obama was adressing in the annual meeting of United Nations Gerneral Assembly. He pledged in a speech to world leaders yesterday that the U.S. will do what it takes to prevent Iran from building a nuclear weapon and warned that time for a diplomatic resolution “is not unlimited.”
“Make no mistake: A nuclear-armed Iran is not a challenge that can be contained and the United States will do what we must to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon,” said Obama, , who seeks re-election on November 6, during his half-an-hour adress to 193-member UN General Assembly.
During his speech Obama also called anew for the ouster of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad following an 18-month civil war without saying how to make it happen. He also offered no fresh ideas on solving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
