President Obama will step onto the world stage on Tuesday to address the United Nations on the escalating crises in Iran, Syria, and the broader Muslim world. The U.S. commander-in-chief will paint the picture of a resilient America that won't let anti-U.S. rage and riots abroad deter its diplomacy. His remarks come as GOP rival Mitt Romney continues to rip Obama's policy abroad as being too "merciful." Obama will also reaffirm his commitment to preventing Iran from developing a nuclear weapon. Iran insists that it is enriching uranium for peaceful purposes.
