No matter how many times you save the world, it always manages to get back in jeopardy again. Bob Parr, in The Incredibles.
Look, I know the world is falling apart. I too am fearful of the terms Jean Carré will negotiate with Iran in order to win his Nobel Peace Prize.
Supposedly thats a medal hell keep
And sure I find it a little unnerving that the Saudis and Egyptians are forming a joint Arab army to fight WWIII against oh, I dont know us, maybe? And yes, I realize it may all depend on the outcome of Jean Carrés performance in Lausanne. Still, although I fully realize the gravity of the situation, I remain more fascinated with his Tour de France than his tour de force:

As Allah is my witness, unless I force myself to look very closely, all I see in that image is Syndrome from The Incredibles.
Uncanny isnt it? Mr. Carré is a spitting image of Buddy Pine, aka, Syndrome, fraudulent superhero.
If you havent seen The Incredibles, and you should, you may not be familiar with the Buddy/Syndrome character. Buddy wanted to be a superhero from the time he was young, butt since he had no superpowers he grew up to become the superheroes nemesis instead.
This is because I don't have powers, isn't it? Well, not every superhero has powers, you know. You *can* be super without them. - Buddy/Snydrome
Buddy decides that if he cant be a superhero, he will destroy all the superheroes instead:
Syndrome: Turns out there are lots of people, whole countries, that want respect, and will pay through the nose to get it. How do you think I got rich? I invented weapons, and now I have a weapon that only I can defeat...
You really should see the movie: unlike the little anti-morality play currently being performed in Lausanne:
Jean Carré and his league of non-superheroes, at the negotiation table
Syndrome: Oh, ho ho! You sly dog! You got me monologuing! I can't believe it...
the movie provides a lot of moral clarity and it has a happy ending.
The Incredibles: Saving the world by whacking one evil genius at a time.

The fate of millions hangs on John Kerry’s diplomatic skills.
It is a GREAT movie, not just a great animated movie. The Incredibles is fun and funny. YES, John Carre’ is the spitting image of Syndrome.
