Rick Perry: I would back Israel strike on Iran nuke sites

WASHINGTON - Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry said on Thursday that as president he would support an Israeli air strike on Iran if there is proof Tehran is moving closer to having a nuclear weapon.
"Obviously, we are going to support Israel. And I've said that we will support Israel in every way that we can, whether it's diplomatic, whether it's economic sanctions, whether it's overt or covert operations, up to and including military action," the Texas governor said in an interview on CNN."We cannot afford to allow that madman in Iran to get his hands on a nuclear weapon period," Perry added.
