ChamberlainPresident Barack Obama declared on Tuesday that diplomacy can still resolve  the crisis over Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons. Talk, talk talk.

One might recall British Prime Minister (talk) Arthur (talk) Neville (talk) Chamberlain saying the same about Hitler in 1938. He had been shuttling to Germany to get some pie-crust promises from der Fuhrer, who never had any intention of honoring them. While Chamberlain was waving the Munich Accord — "peace for our time" — and recommending that all Brits "go home and sleep quietly in your beds," Hitler was ordering an invasion of Poland. "That piece of paper is of no further significance whatever," Hitler told von Ribbentrop.

Fast-forward to 2012. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (Whoopi Goldberg remembers his name as "I'm a Dinner Jacket") is president of Iran. His regime has adopted an official policy to destroy Israel, and he hates the U.S. Iranian nuclear development proceeds as Obama talks. If Iran goes nuclear, so will other Arab states. The world will be destabilized. Terrorists will get the bomb. Every hour that ticks by, Iran gets stronger. Talk, talk, talk.

This week, Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made characteristic sense: "Amazingly, some people refuse to acknowledge that Iran's goal is to develop nuclear weapons. You see, Iran claims that it's enriching uranium to develop medical research. Yeah, right." He went on to say that Arab retaliation against Tel Aviv for any strike against Iran would be preferable to a nuclear weapon in the hands of the Dinner Jacket.

And so the clock is ticking on America's Appeaser in Chief. Tick, tick, tick. Talk, talk, talk. I can work it out. Be patient. A little more patient. A little more. Almost there. Iran is just being naughty. Trust me. Sleep quietly in your beds.
