Surprise surprise, Iran. Yawn…
Funnily enough I was having a discussion with a family member a couple of days ago about who would be the next “evil villain” now Kim Jong has accepted his Oscar for the role and been reinvented as Mr. Smiley Handshake Man.
What do Israel’s details on Iran nuclear program prove?
WASHINGTON — Israel has tried to shake up the debate over the Iran nuclear deal by showing off alleged evidence of Iran’s past nuclear weapons program. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said flatly in a dramatic presentation, in English, on Monday that “Iran lied” about its nuclear ambitions.
He claimed that a secret archive taken from a warehouse in Tehran includes plans to build atomic warheads.
But Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif mocked Netanyahu on Twitter early Tuesday, saying, “the boy who can’t stop crying wolf is at it again.” Meanwhile, key U.S. ally France — a signatory to the 2015 Iran nuclear deal — said that far from proving its illegitimacy, Israel’s revelations actually highlight the need to keep the international agreement in place.

French foreign ministry spokeswoman Agnes von der Muhll called the nuclear deal, formally known by the acronym JCPOA, among the “most comprehensive and robust in the history of nuclear non-proliferation.”
