    Mitt Romney promises world’s strongest military

    Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney promised Monday to maintain a US military ‘‘with no comparable power anywhere in the world.’’

    The probable Republican presidential nominee faced a San Diego crowd estimated at 5,000 in what was billed as a Memorial Day service paying tribute to the nation’s war dead, not a campaign rally. But without naming his general election rival, Romney drew clear contrasts with President Obama on the issue of defense.
