Perry Backs Israel Strike On Iran

11/06/2011

U.S. presidential candidate Rick Perry said he would back an Israeli strike on Iran's nuclear facitilies.

Perry said Thursday that, as president, he would support an attack if there were proof Tehran was moving closer to a nuclear weapon, Reuters reported.

"Obviously, we are going to support Israel," the Texas governor said in an interview with CNN. "And I've said that we will support Israel in every way that we can, whether it's economic sanctions, whether it's overt or covert operations, up to and including military action."
