“I will use absolutely everything in our arsenal against the Iranians, because they need to know that they should fear the United States... We want to be both feared and respected. Number one, you want respect. But when you’re respected you’re also feared.” Michele Bachmann's statements at a campaign event in Storm Lake, Iowa.

Michele Bachmann spoke about the key foreign policy issues of defending Israel and challenging Iranian influence in the Middle East — and declared that other countries ought to be afraid of the United States.
“That’s the problem today in foreign policy: You want the other nations to fear us,” Bachmann said, the Des Moines Register reports. “They don’t fear us today. They laugh at us. This is serious. The United States is being mocked at and laughed at. We’re the military super power of the world and we’re being mocked at and laughed at and being disrespected?”
