Seeking to salvage his pre-election world tour after a series of gaffes during his visit to London, the Republican presidential challenger indicated that he would not stand in Israel’s way were it to launch an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities.
He even compared the threat posed by a nuclear-armed Iran to that of the Holocaust, warning that it was at best naive to dismiss Iran’s ambitions as an “excess of rhetoric”. “The threat it would pose to Israel, the region and the world is incomparable and unacceptable,” he said.
In a speech on foreign policy last night, Mr Romney added that the US had “a solemn duty and a moral imperative to deny Iran’s leaders the means to follow through on their malevolent intentions”.
