All it needed was an Acme label.

Colin Powell is jealous.

Doubt it will be so fun when they pull us into another war in the Middle East

A bomb icon, even it's a Wiley Coyote bomb, is an appropriate metaphor for a visual. Consider it part of a clip art library.

More important is the context of the speech. Perhaps you should dress that Charles, specifically what to do when the Iranians are in that final step of producing super enriched uranium.

@1 or Ace.

@5, Ace never used a bomb that looked like that when she traveled with me. She did call me Professor though which in retrospect I don't really like. But it's better than Steven calling me "Doc".

@4 Why don't you take your outrage to all these other Israelis? I'm sure they'd love to hear your wisdom on why Netanyahu should be taken seriously:

Now, seeing as how Israel does have nuclear weapons, and has shown a willingness to flaunt international law, I'd say the biggest threat to mid-east peace is Israel, not Iran.

It is also exactly the same type of bomb that was fitted into the prphet Mohammed's turban in the Dansih cartoon which resulted in so much tumult a few years back. Netanyahu and co. knew exactly what they were doing when they chose that graphic.

@7: "... I'd say the biggest threat to mid-east peace is Israel, not Iran."

The Prime Minster said the following (here's the transcript):

There’s a great scholar of the Middle East, Prof. Bernard Lewis, who put it best. He said that for the Ayatollahs of Iran, mutually assured destruction is not a deterrent, it’s an inducement. Iran’s apocalyptic leaders believe that a medieval holy man will reappear in the wake of a devastating Holy War, thereby ensuring that their brand of radical Islam will rule the earth. That’s not just what they believe. That’s what is actually guiding their policies and their actions. Just listen to Ayatollah Rafsanjani who said, I quote: "The use of even one nuclear bomb inside Israel will destroy everything, however it would only harm the Islamic world." Rafsanjani said: "It is not irrational to contemplate such an eventuality." Not irrational... And that’s coming from one of the so-called moderates of Iran.

Funny, that clown, Net&yahoo has been saying the exact same thing for at least 20 years???

The "leak" of Iran having nukes first originated with a member of the Mellon family, 'natch, they just love those war profits. It was asst. undersecretary of defense, Christopher Mellon, appointed to the DIA by that republicon Clinton appointed as SecDef, what's-his-face-Cohen.

It it's not Richard Mellon Scaife, it's Chris Mellon. If it's not one of the Koch brothers, it's the Du Pont family, or Peter G. Peterson (representing the Rockefeller family, etc.).

What I can't fathom is how The Stranger staff ever let this guy get away --- wouldn't he be a hoot at your staff meetings???

Once again, a government that doesn't represent it's people. How does this keep happening in a democracy? If Israel wants to go to war, that is on them.

1992 Breaking News – Netanyahu Says Iran Close to Nuclear Weapon

Netanyahu was doing this show-and-tell at the UN, not to a bunch of hipsters in America. He said and showed exactly what he intended to do.

He's respected as much in Israel as Bush Jr. was here, so don't think he represents Israelis.

Hearing Tonderai point at someone else and say they "have no fucking clue" is hilarious in and of itself.

See, now, I thought the cartoony bomb actually looked more like something Boris Badenoff would throw at Bulwinkle. But, hey, it may just be me....

@9 Really dude this one was too easy.

Rafsanjani in his own words.

“We really do not seek to build nuclear weapons and a nuclear military system. In a Friday prayer sermon in Tehran, I even once said that an atomic bomb would not benefit the occupation regime of Israel. Eventually, if one day a nuclear conflict takes place, Israel as a small country, will not be able to bear an atomic bomb. It is a small country and all its facilities would be destroyed. However, they interpreted this advice as a threat. We really believe that there should not be any nuclear weapon in the region and this is a part of the principles of our politics.”
