Video: Israeli PM uses 'bomb' diagram to warn of Iran nuclear threat

Benjamin Netanyahu used a white card with a cartoon-style bomb on it to illustrate the threat he says is posed by Iran’s uranium enrichment programme.

ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER Benjamin Netanyahu took the unusual step of showing the UN General Assembly a not-very-complex diagram of a bomb to illustrate the threat of Iran’s nuclear programme.

In his speech to the UN General Assembly in New York today, Netanyahu spoke of the imminent threat of Iran’s uranium enrichment programme.

He told delegates that the country will have enough enriched uranium to build a nuclear weapon by next summer and said that a “clear red line” must be set for Iran’s nuclear drive.

“At this late hour, there is only one way to peacefully prevent Iran from getting atomic bombs and that’s by placing a clear red line on Iran’s nuclear weapons program,” he said.

“Red lines don’t lead to war, red lines prevent war.”
