That -- much faster.
You know -- facility at that time a many -- they're making a decision to not reach break out they could easily do that and quick to this summer without a deal.
-- have Netanyahu at a minimum saying look I -- time for diplomacy didn't yield any thing.
And North Africa is so frightening because if you want to look at.
Where you have energy facilities that are insecure.
