It's all about foreign policy for me. I like Obama a lot, but he hasn't intervened in Syria and I would like to see a stronger position against Iran. I think Romney is more likely to do both of those things. The thing is that I like Obama's foreign policy too, but he just doesn't demonstrably exercise American strength frequently enough.

Ultimately, the world is better off when the United States is the unquestionable final authority in the world. Obama hasn't done a poor job, but I think Romney will do a better one.

Has it occurred to you that he might be letting the situation play out a bit before escalating the violence and death by intervening? All of Assad's inner circle is crumbling.
and I would like to see a stronger position against Iran.
The only stronger position is intervention. He's not a neocon, thankfully. We have done everything else.
I think Romney is more likely to do both of those things.
Get us further into debt and send thousands of innocent American soldiers to their deaths is what he will do. If you see that as an improvement, fine.
The thing is that I like Obama's foreign policy too, but he just doesn't demonstrably exercise American strength frequently enough.
lol. Libya. Bin Laden. His 50-man team to combat the LRA. Killing 22 top Al queda leaders. Drone strikes. Etc. etc. etc.

That's a terrible reason to vote for Romney. Also, what state do you live in?

It has and that's not what America should be advancing. Allowing Syria to fail has the potential to destabilize the entire middle east, not to mention opens the door for the Muslim Brotherhood to assume leadership (by filling the power vacuum that the end of Assad's regime would produce). I don't care about -right now- letting the syrian people take care of themselves. I care about preserving the geopolitical stability of the region.

and I would like to see a stronger position against Iran.

The sanctions could have been stronger, and should have been. Iranian elections are near though, and if there isn't a change in power I see no reason that an aggressive stance shouldn't be taken. Fortunately, Iran is relatively a more stable country than others in the region, but unfortunately their primary leader (the Ayatollah) seems determined to undermine any efforts for peace in the region. The US should "stabilize" the region accordingly.

I think Romney is more likely to do both of those things.

No... perhaps we should debate this topic.

Obama has had many legitimate foreign policy successes and there is no denying that there are MANY advantages to his approach, but there still remain changes to be made.

Ultimately, the world is better off when the United States is the unquestionable final authority in the world. Obama hasn't done a poor job, but I think Romney will do a better one.

And military intervention will make the region MORE stable?

The problem with sanctions is that its cost/benefit ration of sorts is always low. It harms the people while accomplishing little setback for the regime. Stronger sanctions wouldn't help. And what evidence do you have that these sanctions are having any effect?
And kind of stabilization are you proposing? Obama hasn't taken military intervention off the table and Romney has done nothing to suggest he would do more than Obama.

I think Romney is more likely to do both of those things.

What topic specifically? That war is costly?
