Washington - In an op-ed written for The Wall Street Journal entitled, “Restoring American Exceptionalism,” former Vice President Dick Cheny together with his daughter Liz, accused President Barak Obama of agreeing to a deal with Iran that will likely lead to “the first use of a nuclear weapon since Hiroshima and Nagasaki.”

Stating that America has “guaranteed freedom, security and peace for a larger share of humanity than any other nation in all of history,” they accused Obama of weakening the fundamental pillars that make the United States great.

They claim President Obama has departed from the ” 75-year, largely bipartisan tradition of ensuring America’s pre-eminence and strength,” they wrote.

“He has advocated cutting our nuclear force in the naive hope that this will persuade rogue regimes to do the same. He has imposed limits on our ability to modernize and maintain nuclear weapons. He has reduced the nation’s missile-defense capabilities,” they continued.

They accused Obama of gutting the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, “arguably the single most effective multilateral arms-control agreement in history,” with the Iran deal.

Obama’s claims that the agreement will prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons is entirely false, as is everything else he has said about the deal, they claimed.

“President Obama told us he would never accept a deal based on trust. ..Instead, the Obama deal provides the Iranians with months to delay inspections and fails to address past clandestine work at military sites,” they wrote.

They rebuffed Obama’s claim that the Iranian deal is the only way to prevent war. They said that this deal will accelerate the production of nuclear weapons across the Middle East as well as give Iranians billions of dollars thanks to the sanctions relief which will likely be funneled to fund terror.

The Cheneys implored the US Congress to reject the deal and to reimpose the sanctions that have been lifted from Iran.

“It is possible to prevent Iran from attaining a nuclear weapon, but only if the US negotiates from a position of strength, refuses to concede fundamental points and recognizes that the use of military force will be required if diplomacy fails to convince Iran to abandon its quest for nuclear weapons,” they wrote.

They called on the American people to consider carefully the next person who will enter the White House to take the place of Obama.

“The right person in the Oval Office can restore America’s strength and alliances, defeat our enemies, and keep us safe…The peace and security of the world and the survival of our freedom depend on it. We must choose wisely.”

Liz and Dick Cheney co-authored “Exceptional: Why the World Needs a Powerful America,” to be published on September 1.

Why does it have to be Cheney to tell us this? Isn't there ANYBODY else, I mean someone with a LITTLE bit of credibility, who argue this case? I would really like to impartially be able to read the article, but knowing that its source is either of the Cheney's just makes it too challenging.

The very ironic thing is that if a bomb is detonated, it will probably be in the USA.

Are you still recirculating that same old false liberal adage? Cheney didn't lie. There were WMDs found in Iraq. Just Google WMDs in Iraq. Inform yourself so you stop sounding foolish.

There is a simple reason why Bush didn't ever mention the WMD find in Iraq, they were minute in quantity and quality, its find would of never justified the big lies told before the war, so they decided rather not to talk about it.

I guess he needs more money for his buddies at Helliburton the man could care less about anyone or anything except money, only Carter was worse than this BUSH/Cheney duo of course until the current anti-Semite in the white house.

Mr. Boogi man is back in town.

He doesn't offer any alternative, neither does he endorse war.

I would ask him to explain what in the world has the Bush administration done to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.

Republicas love to mention that the sanctions have worked, and we should continue them, but they fail to realize that it only worked because of Obama's policies to engage with the world, as a result you had China and Russia cooperate with the sanctions.

Bush/Cheney were never able to get significant foreign countries to work together.

You, unfortunately, have little understanding of the facts. WE sold Iraq chemical weapons during their war with Iran. The remaining weapons were decommissioned and disposed of. Unfortunately, some were disposed of by burying them, where they decomposed. This is what our soldiers found. However, we did NOT find the WMDs that Cheney and friends lied about. There was no attempt to buy yellowcake, the tubes were not for missiles, Saddam had no functional chemical or other WMDs, Iraq was not collaborating with Al Qaeda and our CIA anti-nuclear weapon spy operation in neighboring Iran was compromised when Cheney publicly outed Valerie Plame to retaliate against her husband for calling Cheney on his lies. You see, just because you throw out the word "liberal" doesn't change real facts or your ability to process facts that disagree with your fantasies.

Perhaps its time to consider a nuclear weapon test facility in Jackson Hole.
