On Sunday, 48 hours out from the Iowa caucus, Mitt Romeny and Rick Santorum told potential voters that Iran is a danger to the United States. Santorum declared that if elected he will bomb Iran, while Romney said that Iran’s reported development of nuclear rod technology is a threat. He said “it’s also a device which can be transformed into nuclear weaponry.”

Iran is permitted under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty to enrich non-weapons grade uranium for its domestic nuclear energy program. In February of 2011, Iran invited IAEA inspectors to monitor its 20% enrichment process. Weapons grade uranium requires more than 90 percent enrichment.

Romney blamed Obama for the imaginary threat from the Islamic country. “I want to make sure that the people of this nation understand that he failed us not only here at home, he’s failed us in dealing with the greatest threat we face, which comes from Iran.”

Santorum said if the United States does not attack Iran, it risks becoming a “paper tiger.” He said as president he would order air strikes if Iran does not open up its nuclear facilities. Iranian nuclear scientists should be treated like al-Qaeda terrorists, Santorum told NBC.

In late December, Iran’s permanent representative to the International Atomic Energy Agency Ali-Asghar Soltanieh said that the Islamic Republic has formally invited IAEA inspectors to visit the country’s nuclear facilities.

A number of Iranian nuclear scientists have been assassinated by Israeli intelligence. Israel denies any connection with the assassinations, but intelligence experts believe Mossad and the CIA are behind the murders.

The issue of Iran’s supposed nuclear weapons program has dominated the GOP debates. During the Fox News debate last month, Ron Paul warned about fixating on Iran.

“I would say that the greatest danger is overreacting,” Paul said. “There is no evidence that they have it. And it would make more sense — if we lived through the Cold War, which we did, with 30,000 missiles pointed at us, we ought to really sit back and think and not jump the gun and believe that we are going to be attacked. That’s how we got into that useless war in Iraq and lost so much in Iraq.”

“At the same time the greatest threat Israel faces and, frankly, the greatest threat that the world faces is a nuclear Iran,” Romney said at Elly’s Tea and Coffee Shop in Muscatine, Iowa, following the debate. “We have differing views on this, some of the people, actually one of the people running for president thinks it’s OK for Iran to have a nuclear weapon. I don’t.”

In response to an Iranian missile test on Monday during its Persian Gulf military exercise, trailing candidate Michele Bachmann said she would deploy Patriot missiles, ballistic missiles and other weapon systems in the U.S. and the Middle East and would consider blockading Iran.

A blockade generally cuts off food, supplies, war material or communications and is considered an act of war.

Iran’s current missile technology cannot reach Germany, France, Britain, the EU world government headquarters in Brussels, or the United States.
