Reiterating comments made in an earlier meeting with Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, opposition leader Shaul Mofaz said Sunday that there is still time to stiffen sanctions against Iran, but if a military intervention becomes necessary, the US must lead the operation.

In an interview with Army Radio, Mofaz said that he and Romney had covered a wide spectrum of topics including economic and coalition issues, national service, Iran, Egypt, Syria, Jordan and the Palestinians. "When the hour arrives, and there is no other option, we will do what we need to do," Mofaz said of the Iranian threat.

Addressing the budget cuts planned by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Mofaz blamed the situation on irresponsible management and said that the burden will fall on the Middle Class and will become intolerable.
