JFK's red line versus Obama's long rope

Israel's Prime Minister Ben Netanyahu:
In an interview with NBC’s Meet the Press, said it was important to communicate to Iran that there is a line that it cannot cross, and added that president John F. Kennedy set a similar red line in the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis that did not bring about war, as some had warned, but “actually pushed war back and probably purchased decades of peace with the Soviet Union.”
“This is a country that denies the Holocaust, promises to wipe out Israel, is engaged in terror throughout the world.
It’s like Timothy McVeigh walking into a shop in Oklahoma City and saying ‘I'd like to tend my garden. I would like to buy some fertilizer.’ ‘How much do you want?’ ‘Oh, I don’t know, 20,000 pounds.’ “Come on, we know that they’re working towards a weapon,” the prime minister said. “It’s not something that we surmise. We have absolute certainty about that.”
Netanyahu’s arguments, however, did not convince the administration.

Netanyahu didn't convince this administration? There's a shock.
