No room for compromise in the war on terror
I believe that there is no room for compromise in the war on terror--against ISIS, against Al-Qaeda, and other burgeoning threats around the world. With the rise of ISIS and recent horrific terror attacks, we must be even more
vigilant to protect our families and secure our citizens from threats, both foreign and domestic. We must eliminate ISIS to prevent the next 9/11, secure our nation's borders,
equip our military and law enforcement agencies with the training and cutting-edge resources they need, and protect our communities from lone-wolf terrorists. We must stand by our military, veterans and first responders who put
their lives on the line every day and ensure that they have the best possible care, when they serve and after. There is no room for compromise against terror.

All options on the table with Iran, including military
As a state sponsor of terrorism, Iran poses a threat to American security, a threat made worse by their pursuit of nuclear technology in defiance of the international community & their own treaty obligations. A nuclear-armed Iran is plainly unacceptable.
Iranians recently elected a new President who has taken a less confrontational tone and positioned himself as open to negotiation.
The president is right to keep all options, including military action, on the table while vigorously pursuing both
international sanctions and a negotiated settlement that prevents Iran from gaining nuclear weapons. Today, sanctions have imposed real and increasing harm on Iran's economy and isolated them from the international community.
Pursuing these diplomatic and economic actions must continue while there is time, because while all options should remain on the table, the cost of military action to end the Iranian nuclear program could be very high for us and our allies in the region.
