Netanyahu Says Iran Deal Guarantees Nuclear Arms

From Bloomberg:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, directly challenging President Barack Obama in a speech to U.S. lawmakers, said an emerging agreement with Iran would backfire and ensure the Islamic Republic gains a nuclear arsenal. 

“That deal would not prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons -- it would all but guarantee that Iran gets those weapons, lots of them,” Netanyahu said Tuesday in Washington, speaking to a joint meeting of the U.S. House and Senate in an effort to head off an accord being negotiated between Iran and world powers. “It paves Iran’s path to the bomb.”

Hey, Netanyahu, are you really serious about wanting Iran to give up its attempts to get a nuke? This will work: dismantle your own already existing nuclear arsenal, which you've had aimed at Iran for decades. 

Yeah. Right. I didn't think so.
