America retains the most powerful military in the world, and I am committed to ensuring our military leaders have the full range of weapons and personnel that is justified by the range of threats we face. But I would advocate for our allies to bear more of our common burden, as it is foolish for us to defend those who are fully capable of defending themselves.
I remain concerned about the dangerous inclinations of rogue states such as North Korea, Iran, and Syria. I would support efforts to work with our allies and others who are concerned to ensure that the ability of those who wish us harm is greatly curbed.
I stand with Israel, our one true friend in the Middle East. I favor continued military assistance to Israel to enhance and ensure its ability to defend itself, and I oppose efforts to isolate and harass Israel in forums such as the United Nations.
We must remain vigilant as the threat of global terrorism is ever-present. Those who wish us ill and carry evil in their hearts have not disappeared. We need to continue to take the battle to the enemy, as the more they remain on the defensive the less likely they are to successfully attack our homeland.
