Cheney: Israel would attack Iran to survive

WASHINGTON (Newsmax) — Former US vice president Dick Cheney said he believes Israel would attack Iran’s nuclear facilities to prevent the Islamic Republic from developing nuclear weapons.

“I think Iran represents an existential threat, and [Israel] will do whatever they have to do to guarantee their survival and their security,” Cheney said in a Newsmax interview last week.

“I’ve had a number of conversations with a lot of Israeli officials, and I think they correctly perceive Iran as a basic threat,” Cheney said.
