Benjamin Netanyahu, widely expected to be the next Prime Minister of Israel, said yesterday, that Iran will not be armed with a nuclear weapon. In response to a question asking if stopping Iran's nuclear ambitions included a military strike, replied: "It includes everything that is necessary to make this statement come true."

Barack Obama used a similar formulation, in his AIPAC speech on June 4, 2008, "I will do everything in my power to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon." He added, "Everything in my power. Everything."
