National security and foreign policy have been largely absent from the Republican convention. But when Republicans address defense, their tough talk borders on belligerence.
Mitt Romney already has said that he would support a unilateral Israeli strike on Iran, a strike that, with U.S. involvement, would not stay unilateral for long. He has threatened a trade war with China and termed Russia “our pre-eminent foe.”
Romney took a break from the convention to address the American Legion convention in Indianapolis where, according to The Wall Street Journal, he called for “a robust militarized defense of U.S. interests.”
