    Biden: Romney wants war with Syria, Iran

    YORK, Pa. (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden said Sunday that Republican rival Mitt Romney is "ready to go to war in Syria and Iran" while hurting the middle class.

    The warning came during a campaign stop in York, Pa., designed to promote President Barack Obama's economic policies among white, working-class voters. The thrust of Biden's pitch has been that America is digging out from the 2008 economic collapse and that Romney would take the country backward. But Biden, a foreign policy heavyweight, also cautioned voters that Romney would adopt policies that favor confrontation over cooperation.

    "He said it was a mistake to end the war in Iraq and bring all of our warriors home," Biden said of Romney. "He said it was a mistake to set an end date for our warriors in Afghanistan and bring them home. He implies by the speech that he's ready to go to war in Syria and Iran. "

    Biden made the claim about Syria and Iran without offering specifics; his campaign did not immediately respond to a request for details.

    Romney has said he would consider military action in Syria if the war-torn country's chemical weapons were at risk of falling into the wrong hands. Obama, who has opposed military action in Syria, has made similar remarks, calling it a "red line" for the U.S. if Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime were to use chemical or biological weapons.

    And like Obama, Romney has said the U.S. must keep all options on the table, including a military strike, when dealing with Iran. But Romney has suggested that Obama has been too soft on Iran and — without offering specifics himself — said he would prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.

    I agree, i wish we would just mind our own business and get our own house in order before we keep getting involved in more shit, with that said, If yuo really think Obama isnt going to get involved in Iran if Israel attacks you are delusional.
  4. As long as Joe Biden says it, it must be true.

    Biden has as much credibility as the Iraqi info minster for Saddam Hussein.

    Were your quotes yours or from Saddam? "No, these are all from the Arab history and all will be clear on time." (sounds to us like he's not done yet!)
    [where he got his information] "From authentic sources. Many authentic sources."
