U.S. simulation shows Israeli strike on Iran could bring wider war

The war game, held this month, was not intended as a dress rehearsal for U.S. military action, according to officials who spoke with The Times.

The game raised fears among planners that it would be impossible to keep the U.S. from becoming involved in a confrontation with Iran.
