WASHINGTON—Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in a highly anticipated speech to Congress, said an emerging diplomatic agreement with Iran would ensure that Tehran eventually acquires a nuclear weapon.

“That deal would not prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons, it would guarantee it—lots of them,” Mr. Netanyahu said.

Mr. Netanyahu, drawing frequent applause in the packed House chamber, directly challenged President Barack Obama ’s argument that a diplomatic accord allowing Tehran to retain some nuclear capabilities would be more effective than additional sanctions or military action. He said any agreement that stops short of completely dismantling Tehran’s nuclear program would be ineffective…

    Yes he got applause but how many dems actually showed up?

    • Quite a few stayed away. He made Nancy Pelosi cry

        How? I can’t watch it from the work site today.

        • Well he made her almost cry….

          House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi dismissed a speech Tuesday from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as full of “condescension” and an “insult to the intelligence of the United States.”

          “That is why, as one who values the U.S.-Israel relationship, and loves Israel, I was near tears throughout the Prime Minister’s speech – saddened by the insult to the intelligence of the United States as part of the P5 +1 nations, and saddened by the condescension toward our knowledge of the threat posed by Iran and our broader commitment to preventing nuclear proliferation,” Pelosi said in a statement.

            Pelosi is playing to her Jew-hating base in California.

            …her Jew-hating base in the Democrat party

          • David

            saddened by the insult to the intelligence

            The only insult to anyones intelligence is from her for thinking that any decent person would take her seriously on any subject.

          • Justin St.Denis

            Wow. That is quite the mouthful of lies all at once – even for a pathological liar like Nancy Pelosi.

          • bjedwards

            she is a scumbag

          • DVult

            Since when does a country have intelligence? Who exactly has had their intelligence insulted? Every last person she could possibly be referring to including herself is a complete and utter moron.

      • Justin St.Denis

        Impossible. Only humans and elephants cry.

      • Clausewitz

        How is it possible for Pelosi to cry after all of that facial surgery and Botox. She always looks like she’s walking into a gale force wind with that death mask rictus of a face.

          The look but I see wrinkles on her for head so maybe both doesn’t work anymore.

  • David Murrell

    Excellent speech. BCFers should take the time to listen to it, from start to finish.

  • truthdareisay

    Anyone notice how at the beginning Prime Minister Netanyahu even choked on the name “Khameni”.. I don’t blame him. His speech made my eyes tear up to but for complete different reasons Pelosi gave. No one is perfect, certainly not Bibi, but I tell you this speech was heartwrenching, factual and truly frightening.. No, he was NOT fear mongering but the facts are unthinkable what Obama could do vis a vis Iran if he does not listen to the Prime Minister of Israel.

  • bjedwards

    Netanyahu is right.

    and Obama is of course an evil Muslim who wants to arm Iran

  • Hard Little Machine

    Obama’s response and the response of his flying monkeys is so far over the top it’s comical.

    • Linda1000

      Just like the Ayatollah Tweets. Obama was busy today.
