Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu feels so strongly about imposing a “red line” on Iran’s nuclear program that he demonstrated by using a magic marker to draw an actual red line on a bomb diagram during his speech to the United Nations on Thursday.
“There’s only one way to peacefully prevent Iran from getting atomic bombs,” the prime minister explained. “And that’s by placing a clear red line on Iran’s nuclear weapons program.”
“Let me show you, I brought a diagram for you,” he told the General Assembly as he unfolded a drawing of a bomb with a lit fuse that could have easily been mistaken for something out of a children’s cartoon.
“If these are the facts — and they are — then where should a red line be drawn?” Netanyahu asked. “A red line should be drawn right here.”
At that point, the prime minister used a large red marker to draw a thick red line at the top of the bomb near the fuse.
“Before Iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb, before Iran gets to the point where it’s a few months away or a few weeks away from amassing enough enriched uranium to make a nuclear weapon,” he warned.

British PM candidates clash over Brexit as Boris Johnson skips debate
Candidates to become Britain's next prime minister clashed over Brexit strategy at their first debate on Sunday but the frontrunner, Boris Johnson, dodged the confrontation.
The 90-minute debate on Channel 4 featured the five remaining candidates and an empty podium for Johnson, the gaffe-prone former foreign secretary and former mayor of London.
In sometimes ill-tempered exchanges, four of the five candidates said they would seek to renegotiate the draft Brexit divorce deal agreed with Brussels even though EU leaders have repeatedly ruled this out.

Here are 10 women who wouldn’t be silenced in 2018
It's been 26 years since the so-called "Year of the Woman," when a record number of women were elected to Congress in 1992. Four senators and 24 representatives were sent to Capitol Hill, following contentious Supreme Court hearings for then-nominee Clarence Thomas, who was accused by Anita Hill of sexual harassment.
On several levels, the themes of 1992 have made repeat, and amplified, appearances this year. The #MeToo movement became fully realized with women reclaiming and reframing their stories, as President Donald Trump, himself accused many times of sexual predator behavior settled further into the White House. Trump nominated Brett Kavanaugh, also accused of sexual assault, to the Supreme Court, and while Kavanaugh would go on to attain a seat on the highest court in the land, serial sexual predator and former beloved comedian Bill Cosby was sent to prison for the drugging and rape of Andrea Constand, only one of dozens of women who have spoken out against Cosby with credible accusations of assault.
