Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, said yesterday that the agreement between Iran and the P5+1 nations on nuclear development is “far worse than the deal that Neville Chamberlain made with Hitler” and will lead to God’s judgment on America.
In an interview with the Family Research Council’s “Washington Watch” program, Gohmert predicted that Iran will soon attain a nuclear capability, which, he explained with some circular logic, the country will then use “to blackmail the rest of the world into removing the sanctions and now they will be able to buy nukes and be able to use those to blackmail people to back off the sanctions.”
“There is going to have to be judgment come down on America,” the congressman said. “This is devastating for the United States if this thing goes through.”
Gohmert also warned in great detail about a potential Iranian nuclear EMP attack against the U.S., claiming that Iranian ships will launch such a strike from the east coast or the Gulf of Mexico as a result of the “insane” agreement.
“It will fry virtually every computer chip in the country, all the electrical grids would go down,” he said. “Many cars wouldn’t work. It would prevent our ability to refine oil into gasoline. Walmarts, grocery stores that rely on computers, many of them would have to shut down. It would be an absolute disaster, there are estimates that tens of millions of people would die if an EMP were set off and everything shut down.”
