You have said that you would condition the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan based on conditions on the ground. What would be your threshold to conclude that an end to the war was appropriate? You have suggested that President Obama's stance on Iran's nuclear ambitions shows an insufficient commitment to Israel's security. Do you support a preemptive strike by Israel on Iran's nuclear facilities? Should American forces participate in such an action? What should be the trigger for a military strike -- the point at which Iran has the capacity to build a bomb, or the point at which it attempts to do so? What should be the level of the United States' involvement in the conflict in Syria? What did you mean when you called Russia the nation's greatest enemy?
