Bomb Iran? Mitt’s coo’ wiff it.

After saying he would need to “consult his lawyers” about military action against Iran, today he said he would support a “bombardment of some kind.”

As the Bush administration announced new sanctions against Iran, which some people, including me, see as a move towards military action, Romney applauded the sanctions while stating his willingness to get the United States involved in another war in the Middle East.

Barack Obama seems to argue that naming the Iranian Revolutionary Guard as terrorists and adding more sanctions against Iran is just a ploy to maintain or increase troop levels in Iraq.

“It is important to have tough sanctions on Iran, particularly on the Iranian Revolutionary Guard which supports terrorism,” Obama said. “But these sanctions must not be linked to any attempt to keep our troops in Iraq, or to take military action against Iran. Unfortunately, the Kyl-Lieberman amendment made the case for President Bush that we need to use our military presence in Iraq to counter Iran – a case that has nothing to do with sanctioning the Revolutionary Guard.”

I am scared of another war. Seriously. Iran is much more powerful, has a larger population, and more military capabilities than Iraq did and does. We have been in Iraq for more than 4 years with no end in sight, how long will it take us, with a military spread thin, to “defeat” Iran? We need diplomacy to end this situation. Pushing the regime in Iran away with sanctions and terrorist labels is not going to end well.
