Romney: Obama 'has failed to lead in Syria'
"The president has failed to lead in Syria, where more than 30,000 men, women, and children have been massacred by the Assad regime over the past 20 months," and rebels do not have the necessary weapons to battle President Bashar al-Assad's troops, Romney said in a major foreign policy speech.
Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney threw down the gauntlet to Russian leader Vladimir Putin on Monday, saying that if elected president he would show 'no flexibility' on missile defense.
"I will implement effective missile defenses to protect against threats. And on this, there will be no flexibility with Vladimir Putin," Romney said in a major foreign policy in Virginia four weeks out from election day.
