U.S. would have fired on Iran-(REUTERS)

Jan. 12 - The top United States military officer said he has no doubt the U.S. navy would have fired at Iranian patrol boats if necessary.

Navy Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the U.S. military's Joint Chiefs of Staff, said an incident where Iranian boats buzzed U.S. naval vessels in the Gulf showed the threat posed by Iran. Iran and the United States dispute the severity of the incident.
