During a campaign speech delivered in Missouri on Friday, Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum did his best to make his audience shake in their boots with the specter of an Iranian nuclear attack.

“Once they have a nuclear weapon, let me assure you, you will not be safe, even here in Missouri,” Santorum predicted.

According to The Hill, Santorum is hoping to attract conservative votes in Missouri, where Newt Gingrich is not on the ballot.

Santorum went on to accuse the Iranian government of supplying all the improvised exposive devices used by Middle Eastern insurgents against U.S. troops. “These are folks who have been and are at war with us since 1979,” he stated. “This is a country that has killed more troops in Afghanistan and Iraq than the Iraqis and the Afghans.”
