Biden Reassures AIPAC on Iran

Vice President Joe Biden tried to end any questions pro-Israel activists have about President Barack Obama’s commitment to do-ing whatever is necessary to block Iran’s nuclear program.

Obama’s policy “is to prevent Iran from acquiring a nucle-ar weapon. Period. End of discussion,” Biden told at-tendees at the recent American-Israel Public Affairs Council annu-al conference in Washington. “Prevent — not contain — prevent,” Biden added emphatically. “Big nations can’t bluff and presidents of the United States cannot and do not bluff and President Barack Obama is not bluffing,” Biden declared, in what he said was a pre-view of remarks Obama will make during his planned trip to Israel. “We are not looking for war [but] all options, including military force, are on the table,” Biden said.
