In one of the sharper, more substantive debates of the GOP primary so far, Ron Paul and Rick Santorum brought their foreign policy fight to New Hampshire, outlining dueling visions for the role the United States military should play worldwide — particularly in regards to the nation's relationship with Israel and how best to handle Iran's nuclear programs.
