I do not favor a new national government until the Middle East demonstrates that they can handle the ones that they already have.

Joe, who cares what you favor or don't? Do you live there? Do you want someone living 5,000 miles away "favor" what government you have?

To what country's "national government" do you refer? If you're referring to a Middle Eastern government, then it's not our business.

This makes it our business, because if we do not change course, it will be happening again. Only I expect them not to repeat the mistakes they made the last time: 1) They hit us too soon. 2) They did not hit us nearly hard enough.

On Monday, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney delivered a foreign policy speech to cadets at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va. He was correct in his indictment of the Obama administration for its numerous failures -- especially in the Middle East

-- and his embrace of Ronald Reagan's "peace through strength" philosophy.

A strong and respected America is less likely to be attacked.
