While speaking at a fundraising event on Thursday, President Barack Obama was briefly interrupted by a supporter who urged him not to go to war with Iran.

“We promoted human rights,” Obama said. “We made it clear that America is a Pacific power. We demonstrated that if countries like Burma travel down the road of democratic reform, they will find a new relationship with the United States. And we leading again by the power of our moral example. That’s what change is.”

“No war with Iran!” a member of the crowd shouted.

“No one has announced a war, young lady,” Obama responded. “But we appreciate your sentiment. You’re jumping the gun a little bit there.”
