US Presidential Candidate Santorum Would Bomb Iranian Nuclear Sites

By

Rick Santorum, an ultra-conservative Republican presidential candidate, has vowed to ensure that Iran cannot produce a nuclear weapon if he is elected president.

“Iran will not get a nuclear weapon under my watch,” Santorum said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday, following the announcement by Iranian scientists of the production of the country’s first nuclear fuel rod.

Santorum, the former senator from Pennsylvania, said he would authorize air strikes on Iranian nuclear facilities unless the country opens them up to inspectors.

The West, led by the United States, suspects Iran of pursuing a secret nuclear weapons program, but the Islamic Republic insists it needs nuclear power only for civilian purposes. Iran is already the subject of a wide range of international sanctions.

In the last few months, a large-scale psychological war has been launched against Iran. Respectable Western publications are carrying intimidating reports about Iran’s military plans, its success in developing nuclear weapons and its terrorist schemes.
