What happened to all the GOP saber rattling regarding Syria and Iran by Romney?

Has the GOP become pacifist in 2013?

Update:

Almost half of the US electorate voted for Romney after he said he would help arm Syria's opposition forces. Mr. Romney said outright, “the United States should work with partners to organize and arm Syrian opposition groups,” and campaign advisers asserted that a Romney White House would take a more aggressive leadership role in the process. Now those voters seem less eager to confront Assad. I wonder why.

Update 2:

So the GOP is so intimidated by Al-Qaeda that they have done an about face? Gee, who knew Republicans were so easily frightened into pacifism.

Update 3:

Sonic, changing the subject to say what you want to say isn't answering. That's classic BS.

    they've reverted to obstructionism. This is what happens when the GOP don't get their way. Actually were better off because if Romney was in the Whitehouse you better believe that he like Bush would have spent us into the ground by now. You think it's bad now. Republicans can do far worse. Because they just don't respect government. They only wanted war with IRAN because of the new TECH (new tech cost 3-6 TRILLION that's where the debt came from)they can purchase from their buddies and get sweet kickbacks for ripping the government/the taxpayer(you and me) off

    I love how they yap about wasteful spending

    LMFAO

    Looks who's talking. We wouldn't be in this mess if it wasn't for them. Bush might not appear to be a great President to the ordinary man. But weapons makers love him that's why they give him a 15 million dollar Christmas bonus every year. Because he bankrupted the U.S. just to give the weapons guys all of our money.

    That's how republicans get revenge for losing the civil war.

    Romney calls for arming Syrian opposition, as part of Middle East course change

    Published October 08, 2012

    "Mitt Romney called Monday for a change of course in America's Middle East policy, accusing President Obama of sitting on the sidelines in the face of a "profound upheaval" across the region. The Republican nominee pledged that, if elected, he would prosecute a far more engaged foreign policy, including helping to arm the opposition in Syria's bloody civil war."

    "Iran is sending arms to Assad because they know his downfall would be a strategic defeat for them. We should be working no less vigorously through our international partners to support the many Syrians who would deliver that defeat to Iran -- rather than sitting on the sidelines," Romney said."

    Romney is not an elected government official so it's redundant to even consider conjecture.

    But, John McCain is doing some very nice saber rattling and Obama appreciates it.

    That was before al Qaeda took over the Rebel position.

    Too little, too late. Have to kill them ALL now.

    Any strike now would be to little to late. Over 100,000 people are dead already. Not to mention it's kinda hard to get behind a president that is wanting to do something that he campaigned against.

    We were handed the what if's and the nation fell for it. Obama was the messiah that who would bring peace and love...like the hope and change promise. Question America... "How's that workin' for ya?"
