Dick Cheney Warns of Potential Nuclear Devastation from Iran

On Tuesday morning, former Vice President Dick Cheney spoke to the American Enterprise Institute warning of a risk of nuclear devastation from Iran. He said “With the removal of restrictions on Iran’s ballistic missile program, this agreement will give Iran the means to launch a nuclear attack on the U.S. homeland. I know of no nation in history that has agreed to guarantee that the means of its own destruction will be in the hands of another nation, particularly one that is hostile. What President Obama is asking the United States Congress to do is unique — historically and dangerously unique. The results could well be catastrophic.”

Cheney also referenced the mass amounts of money that Iran will receive from having the sanctions lifted--an estimated $150 billion. Cheney went on to say that Obama has been “willfully blind” to the consequences of the deal, which will “facilitate and enable the Iranian regime’s support for terror and terrorist groups, including those who have attacked the United States and are threatening our security, our allies and our interests.” In addition, Cheney stated “This deal gives Tehran the means to launch a nuclear attack on the U.S. homeland. Arming and funding Iran while simultaneously providing them with a pathway to a nuclear arsenal is not an act of peace. It’s not, as President Obama claims, the only alternative to war. It is madness.”

Also in attendance was Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), an ardent opponent of the nuclear agreement who has helped lead the charge against so-called secret side deals signed between Iran and nuclear regulators. In a response video, the White House chimed “Vice President Dick Cheney: Wrong then, wrong now." The House and Senate are set to vote on the deal later this week. Cheney concluded “I think that a most significant thing we have to do before we do anything else is rebuild our military."
