Having said that, Iran’s leaders should have no doubt about the resolve of the United States (applause), just as they should not doubt Israel’s sovereign right to make its own decisions about what is required to meet its security needs (standing ovation and lots of applause). I have said that when it comes to preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, I will take no options off the table, and I mean what I say. That includes all elements of American power. A political effort aimed at isolating Iran; a diplomatic effort to sustain our coalition and ensure that the Iranian program is monitored; an economic effort that imposes crippling sanctions; and, yes, a military effort to be prepared for any contingency.” (applause)
