Cain Says He Wouldn’t Hesitate to Attack Iran to Defend Israel


herman_cainRepublican presidential hopeful Herman Cain says he wouldn’t hesitate to attack Iran if it attacks Israel first. Cain told The Washington Times that if Israel is ever attacked first by Iran, he would “make it crystal clear (that) if you mess with Israel, you’re messing with the United States of America.”Cain stressed that his policy would not be a “blank check” for Israeli military action. Cain is a former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza who has also hosted a radio talk show in Atlanta.

He was interviewed by the newspaper after he met Monday with Israel’s ambassador to U.S., Michael Oren.

Cain’s spokesperson could not immediately be reached for comment Monday night.

  1. I would hope all the potential candidates would act similarly (except for nutjob Ron Paul), but I think the most important thing is to PREVENT Iran from attacking or even having the capability to attack with a nuclear weapon.
