these so called electorate from usa, why do you always elect criminal scum there? What is wrong with you?
This romney is out of his mind and his proposals are really dangerous globally and domestically.
It was Ron Paul, who has good proposals, why did he loose?

"Romney said Obama’s mistake was coming into office trying to comprise with Iran’s leaders, instead of confronting them."
“I will have a very different approach with regard to Iran,” including “crippling sanctions that should have been put in place long ago,” he said.
Romney also said the greatest threat facing the United States and the rest of the world is a nuclear Iran.
----------
These 'crippling sanctions' have already been imposed and don't have a good historical record of working as expected. In fact, they may convince Iran that it's only hope of national security is to get a nuke and the ability to use it as fast as possible. The hardships the sanctions put on Iran may help prepare them for war, if the US and Israel decide to attack.

Romney is talking to the US electorate, not to the Iran or the world, you may see something different if he wins. After all how will he pay for a War, after <sic> the US is facing a fiscal cliff and a War would be expensive.

The US has been at 'war' somewhere for some time, perhaps Romney (Obama too) should heed the words of Sun Tzu "There is no instance of a nation benefiting from prolonged warfare."

Romney has nothing to flex. He's a draft-dodging
tenderfoot who has yet to build up any foreign policy muscles.

But he can sure shoot off his mouth.
Hell, talk is cheap and Romney is about the cheapest
so far.

He can talk tough, his sons are not in the military.
