Those memorable words, and many more, from Prime Minister Netanyahu as he addressed the UN yesterday in a speech made all the more memorable by his use of a rather crude but most effective chart:
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Thursday that Iran will have enough enriched uranium to make a nuclear bomb by next summer and urged the world to draw a clear "red line" to stop it in its tracks.
Flashing a diagram showing the progress Iran has made, he said it was getting "late, very late" to stop Iran.
"Red lines don't lead to war, red lines prevent war," he said. "Nothing could imperil the world more than a nuclear-armed Iran."
Netanyahu said Iran had completed the first stage of uranium enrichment.
"Iran is 70% of the way there and ... well into the second stage. By next summer, at current enrichment rates, they will have finished the medium enrichment and move on to the final stage," Netanyahu said. "From there it is only a few more weeks before they have enriched enough for a bomb."
Netanyahu has repeatedly argued that time is running out to stop the Islamic Republic from becoming a nuclear power and the threat of force must be seriously considered.
"I believe that faced with a clear red line, Iran will back down – and it will give more time for sanctions and diplomacy," the Israeli prime minister said.
The prime minister also drew a parallel between the Iranian threat and the Holocaust. “Those who opposed that fanaticism waited too long to act,” said Netanyahu, adding that the defeat of Germany came years later “at a terrific cost."
The Left, both in and out of the media, were quick to mock the speech and particularly Netanyahu's bomb chart.
And Reuters and the AP deliberately chose to publish shock photos of the man.
They are, simply, disgustingly juvenile.
