Wendy Long on War & Peace

 

 


Stand with Israel in ensuring Iran does not get nukes

Referencing Wednesday's thwarted terrorist attack in New York City, Long said it's further evidence that the United States must stand with Israel in ensuring Iran does not have nuclear capabilities while Gillibrand used it to blast sequestration that would require across the board budget cuts to areas like federal anti-terror funding.

No 2014 withdrawal date for troops in Afghanistan

While Long criticized Obama for setting a 2014 withdrawal date for troops in Afghanistan, Gillibrand said she believes America should leave now.

Gillibrand said Al Quaeda has "metastasized" to other parts of the world. "I do not believe that we should continue our investment of troops, troops' lives and our money in Afghanistan because the threat has moved," she said; the US needs a "counter-terrorism approach instead of a counter insurgency approach. We need narrow targeted missions," she said.

Opposes waiting; go after militant Islam abroad.

Long opposes the AFA survey question on the War on Terror

The American Family Association Action Voter Guide asked if candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'The U.S. military should wait for militant Islamic groups to directly threaten our national security on our shores, rather than eradicate them now wherever they may be worldwide.' American Family Association Action (AFA Action) produces the online "iVoterGuide" for selected state and federal races. The mission of AFA Action is to inform and mobilize individuals to strengthen the biblical foundations of America.
