"We don’t want another Iraq or Afghanistan"
--Mitt Romney

This is a shift from his last campiagn for president. Here is how Romney responded in a Jan. 24, 2008 GOP debate:

MR. RUSSERT: Governor Romney, was the war in Iraq a good idea worth the cost in blood and treasure we have spent?
MR. ROMNEY: It was the right decision to go into Iraq. I supported it at the time; I support it now.
