How will Romney Defend the Nation?

I was watching Thom Hartmann yesterday on satellite TV. A lady called in with this question: If Mitt Romney and his 4 sons are conscientious objectors, how will he lead the US military as Commander in Chief?

On the news it was reported that the Republicans in the house want to pass a resolution requiring the US to declare war on Iran as soon as that country becomes "nuclear-capable" even if the use of nuclear power is for peaceful purposes like generating electricity. How will the leading Republican candidate, a conscientious objector of past wars (Hartmann {May 16, 2000} reported that Romney had avoided service in the military by serving as a Mormon missionary to France) deal with a war begun by his party as soon as he enters office?
