He wrongly claims "once the Iranians understand that there's a line that they can't cross, they're not likely to cross it."

Tehran observes international law. It was one of the first countries to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). It has no nuclear weapons program. It plans none.

For decades, Israel's been nuclear armed and dangerous. It spurns NPT and won't sign it. It won't tolerate IAEA inspections. No nation is more closely monitored round the clock than Iran.

Netanyahu lied saying if America set a red line before Saddam invaded Kuwait, "maybe that war could have been avoided." 

US ambassador April Glaspie OK'd his invasion. It followed months of failed negotiations to stop cross-drilling into Iraqi territory. Washington planned the provocation. It needed Saddam to react to wage war. 

Kuwait was stealing Iraqi oil. Saddam wanted it stopped. With US approval, he took matters into his own hands. Doing so doomed him. As they say, the rest is history.

Weeks earlier, Netanyahu claimed Iran's "moving very rapidly to completing the enrichment of the uranium that they need to produce a nuclear bomb. In six months or so they'll be 90 percent of the way there."

Saying so then and now inverts truth. Defense Secretary Ehud Barak mimics him. He claims Iran may be approaching a "zone of immunity." He means Iranian fortifications may be too strong to penetrate.
