Cheney: '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'

Former Vice President Dick Cheney will have some very blunt things to say about the sellout to a nuclear-armed Iran in a speech to the American Enterprise Institute on Tuesday. And they are not about Israel.
The nuclear agreement negotiated between Iran and six world powers earlier this year is "madness" and an "intricately crafted capitulation" on the part of President Barack Obama's administration, former Vice President Dick Cheney will say Tuesday during a speech to the American Enterprise Institute in Washington.
The deal "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," Cheney will tell attendees at the center-right think tank's event, according to excerpts provided to POLITICO Playbook.
"What President Obama is asking the United States Congress to do is unique—historically and dangerously unique. The results may be catastrophic," Cheney will say. "It is not, as President Obama claims, the only alternative to war. It is madness."
"Charles Krauthammer has written that it took Nazi Germany 7 years to kill 6 million Jews. It would take a nuclear-armed Iran one day," Cheney will say of the possible consequences.
The deal will allow Iran " to modernize and expand its military capabilities while the United States military suffers from devastating Obama-era defense cuts and the effects of sequestration," Cheney will say. As such, he will add, the United States "will be in a far worse position" to defend its interests and prevent a nuclear Iran when the deal expires, contrary to statements from Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry.
Making reference to New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez, the second-highest ranking Democrat to come out against the deal, Cheney will say that his Democratic colleagues would do well to take notice.
"When a former ranking Democrat on Senate Foreign Relations says that he fears that Iran will gain such a weapon and that he doesn't want his name on it, his colleagues should pay very close attention. That man is dealing in reality," Cheney will say.
Too little, too late? How many opponents are not being reported on by the uber-Leftist media?

He's not even in office and has been against everything these Democrats have done... why "too little, too late"? And what happened at that Cory Booker thing today? It isn't the Republicans doing this. And, as a matter of fact, remember during the Bush Admin, it was the US desperation for oil that used to make us think they were too soft. But now the US does not need any energy resources from anyone! The only reason we're buying is that we are hooked into the international market and the Gaia Fraud Regulators are throwing endless wrenches into U.S. production. But with the Republicans in charge, energy production will boom and we will assert that we don't have to grovel to any of these OPEC people ANYMORE!!
