Republican hopeful Jon Huntsman would consider a preemptive strike on Iran

Republican contender, former Ambassador to China, in a foreign policy speech in New Hampshire today, says he would be willing to use U.S. military tools to stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.
"I cannot live with a nuclear-armed Iran. If you want an example of when I would use American force, it would be that."
Huntsman also previously told New Hampshire's WMUR station: "What do you do when Iran all of a sudden develops a weapon of mass destruction over the near year to year and a half? …Now, if ever there was a reason to consider using U.S. force, it would be in pursuit of situations like that."
