for twenty-five years. I'm just saying, twenty-five years is very different from a year or so. If this keeps up, it could very well leave the impression that Iran isn't all that interested in pursuing a nuclear weapons program. It could also be the case that Netanyahu has been misunderstanding the level of the threat all this time. And if that's the case, it seems like maybe his voice isn't the most authoritative on the subject.
After all, presenting a speech regarding this issue to the a joint meeting of the US Congress, for the most part, reminds me that it is sort of dangerous to play politics with intelligence regarding weapons programs as if the threat were imminent when it is not. And by indicating that he doesn't consider talks with Iran to ensure that they are not developing such a weapon, he seems to be implying that something more dire is required.
If he's of a mind that he wants conventional war for real over an imagined problem, and has not noticed that a certain war that was begun in 2003 did not actually stabilize the region and thinks we can do the same thing and get different results, I believe I may have found a possible existential threat a little closer to himself than he may have supposed.
