Romney's been baiting Obama on Iran. In an October 8 Virginia Military Institute speech, he claimed :
"Iran today has never been closer to a nuclear weapons capability. It has never posed a greater danger to our friends, our allies, and to us."- Advertisement -

"It is time to change course in the Middle East".I will put the leaders of Iran on notice that the United States and our friends and allies will prevent them from acquiring nuclear weapons capability."
"(W)e must make clear to Iran through actions - not just words - that their nuclear pursuit will not be tolerated." He barely stopped short of urging war.
