Insane Marco Rubio Wants War on Iran by BEN ARMBRUSTER (THINK PROGRESS)
(June 4, 2012) Rubio: ‘We Need To Begin To Prepare People’ For War With Iran
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), reportedly a frontrunner in Mitt Romney’s running mate selection process, last week during a talk at the Council on Foreign Relations hoped that he wouldn’t make news as calling for war with Iran. “I don’t want to come across as some sort of saber-rattling person,” Rubio said, claiming, “I am in line with what the administration has said.” The Florida Republican later added that he doesn’t “want the headlines from here to be, you know, Rubio says let’s hit them now.”
Moments later though, Rubio said Americans need to starting thinking about it:
RICHARD STENGEL (Moderator): But you would — just to be straight about it — but you would sanction a strike before you would tolerate a nuclear Iran?
RUBIO: Yes and I think that we need to begin to prepare people for that.
