Hormuz and Iowa

The Iranian's threatening to close the vital Strait of Hormuz not only brings the possibility of conflict between the U.S. Navy and theirs, whether it be by us acting first or them surprising us all, but how voters in Iowa will react to the bold aggression and saber-rattling of the islamic regime.

When they look at the field as it stands, we have numerous opinions on how to deal with Iran, but its very probable that our next elected President wont be thinking hypothetically, but will actually have to do something in his first year, because the threat is that real and dangerous.

In Iowa we have five candidates that can win the caucuses - Romney, Paul, Gingrich, Santorum and Perry. And the question heading to the local precincts shouldn't be "Who is pro-life?" but "Who will take Iran seriously?"

Romney wants to rebuild our U.S. Navy to superpower strength and blockade Iran. Paul wants to do nothing and allow them to acquire nuclear weapons. Gingrich has not really settled on a plan, besides tougher economic sanctions. Santorum would attack Iran, while supporting dissidents of the regime. Perry favors economically attacking the country, especially Iran's Central Bank.

Iowa, the implications of your choice is more important than you'll ever know. We are looking at the possibility of War against Iran, please select your candidate based on their thoughts on that, and that alone - and please do so wisely.

What say you?
