Red Line Cartoon

If I were to give a prize for the silliest visual aid of the year, it would go to whoever designed this cartoon bomb for Israeli PM Netanyahu to brandish at the UN General Assembly yesterday (CLICK). He delivered his patronising lecture well, but that bomb looks like something out of a Pink Panther cartoon. It's an open secret that Iran is developing a nuclear bomb. It could be building wind farms instead of outmoded nuclear reactors, but it wants big bang capability and its obvious first target is Israel. It's also an open secret that Israel has already made efforts to cripple the project. What I can't forget is the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, which spread radioactive contamination over much of Western USSR and Europe (CLICK). What I want to see isn't a soppy bomb cartoon to illustrate a patronising lecture, but a map of the estimated spread of nuclear fallout if Israel does hit Iran's nuclear facilities. Mr Netanyahu, over to you.

Israel has the right to exist, but maybe this picture isn't the right way to make a point. The Middle East's problems have been going for over two millennia and won't be solved overnight. The Israelis and the Palestinians have a right to live in peace. The madman in charge of Iran, makes that a whole lot harder. Shalom.
