Update: Mitt Romney has won the Iowa Caucus by 8 votes. This is the closest race in the history of the Iowa Caucus. What a squeaker!
Rick Santorum, the second place finisher in Iowa, is a neocon who is threatening to start a war with Iran:
“Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum said he would use air strikes against Iran unless the country dismantled its nuclear program or allowed inspectors to verify that the work isn’t aimed at making a weapon.
“I would be saying to the Iranis, you either open up those facilities, you begin to dismantle them and make them available to inspectors, or we will degrade those facilities through air strikes,” Santorum said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” program today. “Iran will not get a nuclear weapon under my watch.” . . .
Santorum expressed similar views about Iran in a Dec. 15 Republican presidential debate in Sioux City, Iowa, saying “we need to make sure that they do not have a nuclear weapon.”
“We should be planning a strike against their facilities and say, if you do not open up those facilities and not close them down, we will close them down for you,” he said.
“You can’t get out and say this is what I’m for and then do nothing,” Santorum said. “You become a paper tiger and people don’t respect our country.”

Note: In the eyes of Andrea Mitchell and the Mainstream Media, “the rap on Iowa is that it doesn’t represent the rest of the country: it is “too White, too evangelical, too rural” to hold the first caucuses in America.
