Military action against Iran likely, Cheney says

“I don’t have a lot of confidence in the administration to be able to negotiate an agreement. I think sanctions offer some prospect of bringing the Iranians around. I’ve talked to my friends in that part of the region. I still know them, a lot of them, and they’re very fearful that the whole Iranian exercise is going to go the same way as the Syrian exercise; that is, that there will be bold talk from the administration. But in the final analysis, nothing effective will be done about the Iranian program,” Dick Cheney says on ABC’s “This Week.”

When the former vice president  is asked by George Stephanopoulos whether military action against Iran is inevitable, Cheney says:

“I have trouble seeing how we’re going to achieve our objective short of that. And I doubt very much that the diplomacy will be effective if there’s not the prospect that, if diplomacy fails, that we will, in fact, resort to military force.”
