1. He's been singing the same....

song since 1992


Scott Peterson at the Christian Science Monitor did a useful timeline for dire Israeli and US predictions of an imminent Iranian nuclear weapon, beginning 20 years ago.

1992: Israeli member of parliament Binyamin Netanyahu predicts that Iran was “3 to 5 years” from having a nuclear weapon.

1992: Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres predicts an Iranian nuclear warhead by 1999 to French TV.

1995: The New York Times quotes US and Israeli officials saying that Iran would have the bomb by 2000.

1998: Donald Rumsfeld tells Congress that Iran could have an intercontinental ballistic missile that could hit the US by 2003.

3. Iran is just months away from having a fully armed and functional Death Star.

And it has a cool party hat on top and a tassel.

4. That little bomb graphic makes him look psychotic.

 

That, and the fact that he's been predicting an Iranian nuclear bomb being 3 years away now for over 20 years.
