Israeli Prime Minister Uses ‘Bomb’ Diagram In UN Speech

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu brought a diagram of a “bomb” to the United Nations Thursday to emphasize what he described as the seriousness of the threat from Iran. The diagram of the “bomb” showed three stages of uranium enrichment. Netanyahu drew a red line with a permanent market at the point before the final stage at which Iran would have the capability of producing a nuclear weapon.
