Vice President Joseph R. Biden told the country’s largest pro-Israel lobby Monday not to worry — President Obama is determined to stop Iran from getting a nuclear weapon, and he’s not kidding.

“The president of the United States cannot and does not bluff,” Mr. Biden said, during remarks to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, Reuters reported. “President Barack Obama is not bluffing.”

Mr. Biden also assured AIPAC that America preferred to work toward a peaceable solution.

“But all options, including military force, are on the table,” he said, Reuters reported. “While that window [for diplomacy] is closing, we believe there is still time and space.”
