During tonight’s third presidential debate at Lynn University, Mitt Romney agreed with President Obama that America stands with Israel. He added, “If Israel is attacked, we have their back -- not just diplomatically, not just culturally, but militarily.”

Romney said that a nuclear-capable Iran is “unacceptable” because it “represents a threat not only to our friends, but ultimately a threat to us.”

The U.S. mission in Iran, according to Romney, is to “dissuade Iran from having a nuclear weapon through peaceful and diplomatic means. And crippling sanctions are something I called for five years ago.”

He went to say that military action is a last resort and something he would only consider after trying all the other avenues he laid out.
