Here he goes, right on schedule:
JERUSALEM — Mitt Romney would support a unilateral military strike by Israel against Iran to stop Tehran from obtaining nuclear weapon capability, a senior foreign policy adviser said Sunday.
The presumptive Republican nominee began a series of meetings with top Israeli officials here Sunday and plans to deliver a muscular defense of Israel in a formal speech delivered near Jerusalem’s Old City. Previewing the candidate’s remarks, adviser Dan Senor told reporters that Romney would back Israeli military action against Iran.
“It is an existential threat and we in the West partnering with Israel should do everything we can from stopping Iran from developing that weapons capability,” Senor said. “And if Israel has to take action on its own, in order to stop Iran from developing that capability, the governor would respect that decision.”
Senor also said Romney believes the option of a U.S. strike against Iran should be “on the table,” adding that the threat of military action could push the Iranians to stop enriching uranium.
Senor cautioned that Romney is not “advocating” for military action, but believes it should be an option.
(By the way, what’s “an existential threat”? Is that when Kierkegaard becomes belligerent?)
