Nevada runners up, Paul and Santorum vow to continue campaigns

(CNN) – The two trailing contenders in the recent Florida primary and Nevada caucuses said Sunday they would stay in the GOP presidential race and criticized front-runner Mitt Romney and main challenger Newt Gingrich as flawed candidates.

    I don't understand why the media, the White House, and these Republican candidates don't mention the
    Israelis having bombed IRAQ's nuclear program....and the Israelis destroying Syria's nuclear program.
    Why is there all this question of "Will Israel bomb IRAN's nuclear program." Israel will. But I don't
    understand the NO MENTION of Israel's history....not that I blame them.
