Bachmann: I Would Put Missile Systems ‘On Alert’ For Iran

GOP presidential hopeful Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) called for the U.S. to take a “very aggressive posture” toward Iran. Speaking on CBS’s Early Show, she said the U.S. should consider imposing a “blockade” against Iran and put missiles in the region “on alert” because of Iran’s nuclear program. She added that the U.S. should sell Israel weapons and equipment needed for the attack, but that “it wouldn’t be for the United States to tell Israel to do that.” In 2010, the Obama administration finalized a sale to Israel of the “bunker-buster bombs” Bachmann mentioned.
