Reason #7 for Muslim Americans to support President Obama: Libya and Iran
In 2011, President Obama made the tough and politically risky decision to intervene militarily in Libya in order to prevent a massacre of Libyan citizens in Benghazi by Moammar Ghaddafi. Governor Romney first criticized the President for not taking action quickly enough, and after the President gave the order, criticized him for acting too hastily.
The President is also determined to find a diplomatic solution with Iran and has worked with the international community on a system of sanctions, whereas Mitt Romney refuses to take military options “off the table” and insists that any attempt at diplomacy with Iran would be harmful to Israel’s security. Romney also criticized the President for not sticking his nose into the Green Revolution, failing to understand that doing so would have delegitimized the reformists ion Iran by association with American meddling. War with Iran is much more likely under President Romney than President Obama.
