The problem isn't a nuclear deal, it is any deal

This Fallows piece is the best explanation I have seen for why Netanyahu blundered ahead with today's speech even when the damage it was causing was clear. Fallows argues that Netanyahu's goal is not really ending the Iranian nuclear program but rather preventing Iran's reconciliation with the United States and the rest of the Western world. (Fallows' also ends in a similar place to joseph spiezer's comment on this site from the other day).
