Vice President,said while addressing a rally in York, PA on Sunday, that is “ready to go to war” with Syria and Iraq once he wins his bid to the White House. The VP warned that the decision would badly hurt the middle class Americans.
As the Democrats take their campaign to Pennsylvania to promote the President’s economic policies directed at the middle class voters, Joe Biden warned that helping Romney win would mean taking America back to where it was in 2008 since his policies favor confrontation rather than cooperation.
"He said it was a mistake to end the war in Iraq and bring all of our warriors home," Biden said of Romney according to a report by Associated Press. "He said it was a mistake to set an end date for our warriors in Afghanistan and bring them home. He implies by the speech that he's ready to go to war in Syria and Iran."
Biden did not elaborate on his comments nor did he or his campaign respond to calls reporters made requesting for details. The foreign policy heavyweight also avoided any mention of Syria and Iran at a later campaign in Wisconsin.
Romney’s campaign was quick to fire back. "It's no wonder that a politician who has been wrong about every major foreign policy question of the last 30 years is wrong on every count about Gov. Romney's strategy to restore America's leadership role in the world," spokeswoman Amanda Hennenberg said.
While on the campaign trial, Romney had made it clear that if United States felt that Syria’s chemical weapons were at risk of falling into the wrong hands, U.S would not hesitate to take military action against it. Obama had also declared it a ‘red line”, however, he is often being criticized by the conservatives that he has not done enough to stop the war in Syria and free the regime of its chemical weapons.
Similarly, while both candidates are considering military action against Iran, Romney blames Obama for being too soft. While he remains mum over his own specifics on the issue of Iran, Romney does say that he would do all he can to prevent the country from obtaining nuclear weapons.
The rest of Biden’s speech focused mainly on the economy as he slammed Romney for his policies that favored the rich at the expense of the middle class.
