Romney is enjoying a Drudge Report Headline at the moment:


The underlying AP Article quotes Romney as saying: "'If for some reasons they continue down their course of folly toward nuclear ambition, then I would take military action if that's available to us,'"..."'That's an option that's on the table. And it's is not something which we'll spell out specifically. I really can't lay out exactly how that would be done, but we have a number of options from blockade to bombardment of some kind. And that's something we very much have to keep on the table, and we will ready ourselves to be able to take, because, frankly, I think it's unacceptable for Iran to have nuclear weapons.'"

While this is being billed as something of a news flash, Romney has consistently said that a military option in relation to Iran is on the table. Romney also understands that there are many steps that can and should occur before that in order to put pressure on Iran to give up their nuclear ambitions though. His plan:

- First, continue to tighten economic sanctions.

- Second, impose diplomatic isolation on Iran's Government.

- Third, have Arab states join this effort to prevent a nuclear Iran.

- Fourth, make it clear that while nuclear capabilities may be a source of pride, it can also be a source of peril. The military option remains on the table.

- Fifth, integrate our strategy into a broader approach to the broader Muslim world--including working with our NATO allies and with progressive Muslim communities and leaders to build a partnership for prosperity.

This was a fabulous speech and the Israelis, clearly, appreciated it.

Mitt Romney would be a strong, unwavering friend of our ally, Israel.
