42. Have you actually read what he has said?
This is from his interview with Ezra Klein:

... Now thats on the one hand, the flip side of this is what happens if America were to militarily strike Iran? Well you take this unstable, radical leader, and you make him a hero -- thats the first thing thatll happen. The Iranian people will rally around him. The second thing that will happen is they will retaliate. And they have certainly some potential for retaliating here in the United States through some of these terrorist organizations theyre close to, but weve got over a hundred thousand people right next door. And most people believe that they have an infrastructure for retaliation inside Iraq. So, thats the second thing thatll happen. And the third thing is there are a lot of analysts who believe that an air strike or a missile strike is not enough to be successful. To be successful wed actually have to have troops on the ground, and where in the world would they come from? ...
...
Ezra: So, I just want to get it very clear, you think that attacking Iran would be a bad idea?

I think would have very bad consequences.

So when you said that all options are on the table?

It would be foolish for any American president to ever take any option off the table.
