You might remember this from September 27, 2012, when Trumpian Israeli Prime Minister Bibi "Bomb Bomb" Netanyahu brought his highly technical diagram to the UN General Assembly to "prove" where Iran's nuclear weapons program stood:

Here's how the Obama White House responded at the time to Bibi's bomb:

Well, after helping convince Dolt 45 Donald "Rump" Trump to ditch the Iran nuclear deal, he's up to more mischief, and is apparently still using the same questionable prop- maker (Acme Corporation?) to accuse Iran of hiding a "secret atomic warehouse":

What's questionable, you ask?

Atomic- powered flying carpets?!? The Iranians are further along than we thought.
Unfortunately, Bibi's apparently errant intelligence and simple- minded visual might just be enough to convince Dolt 45 to send a cruise missile flying that- a- way, as a kind of "October surprise." Of course, the danger here is that both Bibi and Rump are politically (and legally) vulnerable and could use a distraction, even one based on the flimsiest of evidence. Rump would certainly be egged on by crackpot National Security Advisor John Bolton, whose life mission is regime change in Iran. Do we think this is a likely scenario? Iran's ally Russia might have a countervailing opinion for its asset in the White House. But meanwhile, Bibi continues to play with fire, and unlike an Acme Corporation bomb, it could burn a lot of real, live people.
