Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney weighed in on Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s speech before the UN Tuesday, saying that the Iranian President’s incendiary rhetoric against the U.S. and Israel highlights why the U.S. cannot allow the country to develop nuclear weapon capabilities.

“His threat to eliminate Israel and the disdain he expressed for the free world add to a long list of belligerent and disgusting statements,” Romney said in a statement released by the campaign. “The United States must lead with resolve to ensure that the Iranian regime never obtains the means to realize its genocidal designs.”

Both President Obama and Romney have stated that Iran must not develop a nuclear bomb, calling the possibility a red-line for military intervention. However, Romney has accused Obama of taking too soft a stance on Iran, thus leaving the country emboldened after four years.

The administration has noted that they have put comprehensive sanctions in place limiting the current regime’s economic activity.

  1. The sanctions placed on Iran only hurt the people living in Iran. How exactly have any of those sanctions slowed down Iran’s nuclear program? As far as I could tell, Ahmadinejad did not appear to be missing any meals and he certainly did not express any remorse for anything said in the past. His speech did not even suggest that he would appreciate meeting with Obama to see if they could work things out. This being said causes me to conclude that Romney’s statement that Obama’s stance on Iran is too soft has merit.
