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.

As expected, the president ranted, lied, and engaged in the raucous attacks that are central to his connection with Republican voters. Some of it was actually just sad, such as his continued obsession with Hillary Clinton.
Here are seven of the wildest, disturbing and pathetic moments from the rally:
1. He said Democrats "want to destroy our country as we know it."

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.
