US Vice President Joe Biden on Sunday attacked Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for being "ready to go to war" in Syria and Iran, NBC News reported. Biden's comments came amid ongoing speculation that the Obama government and the Netanyahu government were not in sync on the Iranian nuclear program.
"Listen to what he (Romney) says about foreign policy. You caught some of it in his speech [at the Republican National Convention,]" NBC quoted Biden as saying in a sweeping condemnation of Romney's foreign policy strategy.
"He said it was a mistake to end the war in Iraq and bring all of our warriors home. He said it was a mistake to set an end date for our warriors in Afghanistan and bring them home. He implies by the speech that he's ready to go to war in Syria and Iran. He wants to move from cooperation to confrontation with Putin's Russia."
