Cheney: Force Is The Only Thing That Will Work With Iran

The Obama administration has been facing a wide range of criticism over their ongoing talks with Iran--from both sides of the political aisle. Adding to the list of vocal critics is former Vice President Dick Cheney.

While speaking to a room of Republicans at a private dinner in New Jersey on Tuesday night, Cheney referred to Obama's presidency as “the most damaging, certainly, since World War II.” He also specifically addressed the Iran nuclear talks with the United States as “almost certainly doomed to fail.”

Cheney served as U.S. Secretary of Defense under the George H.W. Bush's administration from 1989 to 1993. Cheney went on to explain, "There have been a number of times when we’ve been faced with the potential threat of nuclear proliferation in the Middle East. What’s worked is military force. Unfortunately, Barack Obama doesn’t seem to understand that."

Cheney further criticized the Iranian government by saying "They have lied and cheated and deceived continuously. They’re motivated and led by a man who believes in a radical view of Islam. I don’t see any good that can come out of this current effort."

Furthermore, Cheney argued that America's traditional allies such as Israel have moved away from relations with the U.S. especially since tensions have grown between the Obama administration and Israel over the past few months. President Obama announced that Iran negotiations are almost complete and should be finalized by the deadline of June 30.
