“The United States must remain a firm and steadfast ally for Iraq…”

Posted on January 01, 2011 in Campaign Statements

“I’m deeply concerned that President Obama is putting political expediency ahead of sound military and security judgment by announcing an end to troop level negotiations and a withdrawal from Iraq by year’s end.  The President was slow to engage the Iraqis and there’s little evidence today’s decision is based on advice from military commanders.

“We need to sanction the Iranian Central Bank…”

Posted on January 01, 2011 in Campaign Statements

“We need to sanction the Iranian Central Bank. That would be one of the most powerful ways to impact the Iranian regime,” Gov. Perry said. “Another option in the region is a no-fly zone over Syria so that nation and Iran understand America is serious about fighting nuclear proliferation and terror in the region.

“[Obama] chastised Israel, but said little about the…Hamas rockets raining into its skies”

Posted on January 01, 2011 in Campaign Statements

“No, over the past three years, President Obama has instead chastened Israel. In his inaugural address to the United Nations, the President chastised Israel, but said little about the thousands of Hamas rockets raining into its skies. He’s publicly proposed that Israel adopt indefensible borders. He’s insulted its Prime Minister. And he’s been timid and weak in the face of the existential threat of a nuclear Iran.”
