Our starting point must always be a clear and strong commitment to the security of Israel…. we must help the Israelis identify and strengthen those partners who are truly committed to peace, while isolating those who seek conflict and instability….
We should expand our ground forces by adding 65,000 soldiers to the army and 27,000 marines….
I will not hesitate to use force, unilaterally if necessary, to protect the American people or our vital interests whenever we are attacked or imminently threatened….
We must also consider using military force in circumstances beyond self-defense in order to provide for the common security that underpins global stability….
…. we must develop a strong international coalition to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons and eliminate North Korea’s nuclear weapons program…. In confronting these threats, I will not take the military option off the table.
…. we must strengthen our homeland security….. checking all passengers against a comprehensive watch list.
