Biden said that while the US preferred a diplomatic solution to the standoff with Iran, a military option remained on the table.

"The president of the United States cannot, and does not, bluff. President Barack Obama is not bluffing," Biden told the audience in Washington.

    "The president of the United States cannot, and does not, bluff. President Barack Obama is not bluffing,"

    Joe Biden followed up his statement with a stern message, "If the Iranians don't see things Barack's way soon, he is going to send them a very strongly worded letter, with words underlined and everything!"
