The White House on Wednesday tweeted an image that should look familiar to those who have closely followed the Iranian nuclear issue over the past couple of years.

- Ayatollah Khamenei Calls Nuclear Framework Agreement Non-binding
In what seems to be a jab at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the White House tweet included an image of the cartoon bomb that Netanyahu famously used while addressing the United Nations General Assembly in 2012.
During that speech, Netanyahu stated that the international community must create a clear "red line" for the Iranian nuclear program, and then, to the astonishment of the assembled diplomats, Netanyahu underscored his point by brandishing a cartoon-like drawing of a bomb with a fuse that showed Iran's progress toward nuclear weapons.
The image tweeted by the White House attempts to portray how the framework agreement reached with Iran last week reverses Iran's progress toward nuclear weapons, and further, that the Iranian nuclear program would only advance faster in the absence of the deal.
