Obama v McCain on Iran

September 1, 2008

One of the sharpest foreign policy differences between the Obama-Biden ticket and the McCain-Palin tandem is over what to do with Iran’s nuclear program.

Barack Obama and Joe Biden generally have urged a more cautious approach that emphasizes diplomacy while John McCain famously responded to one question about his Iran policy by singing “Bomb, bomb Iran” to an old Beach Boys tune.

(The written story continues below.)

In essence, McCain follows the belligerent neoconservative line of a forward-leaning approach in the Middle East that would maintain the U.S. presence in Iraq and would reach even farther into the Muslim world, while Obama – though toughening up his rhetoric recently – believes that the United States must pull back from what he views as a military overreach. is an independent news network that produces stories of global interest.
