Obama suggests military strikes on the table to stop Iran from getting nukes

President Obama leveled an implicit threat at the Republic of Iran in his State of the Union address on Tuesday night, suggesting he is willing to turn to military action if the country does not desist from its attempts to gain a nuclear weapon. 

"Let there be no doubt," said the president. "America is determined to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon, and I will take no options off the table to achieve that goal. "

"The regime is more isolated than ever before," he also said, touting diplomatic sucess.

Obama also denied the perception that his administration's relationship with Israel has fallen on hard times, saying the two nations were working more closely together than ever.
