Mitt Romney surges ahead in polls on back of war and jobs promise
In a speech at the Republican Party national convention, US Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has promised the American people he would invade at least one oil-rich country during his first term in office and would seriously consider taking out a few non-aligned heads of state from other countries for good measure too.
Romney voiced his concern that there were still too many nations hostile to America’s overseas ambitions and that regime change in several Middle East countries such as Belgium and the Central Africa Republic could not be ruled out as part of any future Republican foreign policy.
The move, seen as a Republican vote winner by senior party activists saw a surge in popularity for the former governor of Massachusetts with over 57% of Americans saying they would almost certainly vote for a President who intended declaring war on a smaller, relatively defenceless Muslim nation.
Romney added that starting a new war would have a huge impact on jobs and would help keep fellow Americans such as Matt Damon and Mark Wahlberg in work for years.
