Letter to the Editor
Mitt Romney would like to suck up to the Israelis and come back with a lot of money and support. It’s easy to say that America has a solemn duty and a moral imperative to back up Israel with regard to Iran. But if Romney is going to be the President of the United States he has to learn that his first solemn duty is to America and it is America, not Israel who decides if we are going to war.
We have to make it clear to Israel, like Obama did, that if Israel wants America’s help then Israel has to accept America’s leadership and that America is run from Washington, not Tel Aviv or Jerusalem. America decides what wars we get into or don’t get into. And if Israel goes rouge then we will only back them up if it is in America’s best interest to do so.
