He wants to make Israeli PM Bibi Netanyahu his trusted advisor on all issues dealing with the Mideast. which will of course lead to another big war -- probably within months of the election.
Romney is clueless about the region, its history, its diverse peoples and religions. He will enthusiastically support whatever Israel does, right or wrong.
He will be the worst US president in memory -- and they've mostly all been bad. We have not had a good one since JFK -- and look what the CIA and banksters did to him.
In short, things will suddenly become MUCH worse.
You need to understand clearly that a major war with Iran will likely go nuclear within days if not hours.
Think about this before casting your ballot. Unfortunately, I can't offer a better alternative. There is none.
Many patriots will sit out this election -- for want of anyone to believe in.
Oh I see instead of having someone on our side who likes us in the area, you want sell the farm out even more to obamas Muslim "friends".
Yep that makes so much more sense to the logical mind.
But go ahead and stick your head in the Syrian/Iran sand and hope they like us.
Myself I know they hate anything not 13th century.
