Also, wants to get involved in Syria by sending arms.
As long as we don't send in troops or use American airpower for strikes then I have no problem with sending arms to the rebels. Let them kill each other.
seems to imply we will get involved militarily or support Israli military actions to prevent a nuclear Iran.
I have no problem with supporting Israel in a military strike, again as long as it doesn't involve US troops.
Let's look at the excerpts from his speech.
"General Marshall once said, “The only way human beings can win a war is to prevent it.” Those words were true in his time—and they still echo in ours." Yep, sure seems like he is going to use the speech to be gung-ho about rushing off into war
"I will not hesitate to impose new sanctions on Iran, and will tighten the sanctions we currently have. I will restore the permanent presence of aircraft carrier task forces in both the Eastern Mediterranean and the Gulf the region—and work with Israel to increase our military assistance and coordination. For the sake of peace, we must make clear to Iran through actions—not just words—that their nuclear pursuit will not be tolerated" a show of force does not equal use of force. If that was the case then we were involved in a ton of nuclear wars with the Soviet Union during the Cold War.
In Egypt, I will use our influence—including clear conditions on our aid—to urge the new government to represent all Egyptians, to build democratic institutions, and to maintain its peace treaty with Israel. And we must persuade our friends and allies to place similar stipulations on their aid nothing to do with force here instead it uses passive means to help transform Egypt into a democratic nation. The horror!
And in Afghanistan, I will pursue a real and successful transition to Afghan security forces by the end of 2014. President Obama would have you believe that anyone who disagrees with his decisions in Afghanistan is arguing for endless war. But the route to more war – and to potential attacks here at home – is a politically timed retreat that abandons the Afghan people to the same extremists who ravaged their country and used it to launch the attacks of 9/11. I will evaluate conditions on the ground and weigh the best advice of our military commanders. And I will affirm that my duty is not to my political prospects, but to the security of the nation. I wish he would call for a full withdrawal sooner than 2014 but it's better than endless war we are engaged in now/
Finally, I will recommit America to the goal of a democratic, prosperous Palestinian state living side by side in peace and security with the Jewish state of Israel. nothing objectionable here.
