Obama: Anything to Stop a Nuclear Iran
In last night’s presidential debate, Senator Obama made it clear that he will do anything to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons.
“I make an absolute commitment that we will do everything we need to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons.”
However, Senator Obama has continued to make diplomacy a vital first step in how he would engage Iran, a strategy that he feels has been underutilized in the United States’ foreign policy.
“One of the things we have to try, though, is to talk directly to Iran, something that we have not been doing.”
Obama stressed the importance of talking to all nations:
“We’ve got to talk to our enemies and not just our friends."
