Herman Cain vs. Ron Paul: Iran by Spyridon Mitsotakis 11 Oct 2011 post a comment Share This: Ron Paul's plan for Iran: Just think of how many nuclear weapons surround Iran ... The Chinese are there. The Indians are there. The Pakistanis are there. The Israelis are there. The United States is there. All these countries … Why wouldn’t it be natural if they might want a weapon? Internationally, they might be given more respect. Why should we write people off? Herman Cain's plan for Iran: Well, here's what I'm going to do about Iran. I'm going to utilize a capability that we have that most people are unaware of. I learned about these capabilities when I served on an advisory board for the Strategic Air Command before they changed it to STRATCOM. We are the only nation in the world that has the ballistic missile detection capability at sea as well as on land -- better than any other country in the world. We have the ability to upgrade those ballistic missile defense systems on all of our Aegis warships, and we have the ability to double the number of Aegis warships and strategically place them anywhere in the world to detect missiles fired from those locations toward a friend or toward us and knock it out of the sky before it reaches its apex. And so I would upgrade -- make it a priority to upgrade all of our Aegis surface-to-air ballistic missile defense capability on all of our warships all the way around -- all the way around the world, make that a priority, and then say to Ahmadinejad: Make my day. So - which plan makes you feel safe?
