Has Iran gone oxymoronic instead of nuclear?…

…that can be kind of hard to figure out when you see an article like this one from the
Since 2006, Iran's leaders have called for direct, unconditional talks with the United States to resolve international concerns over their nuclear program. But as an American administration open to such negotiations prepares to take power, Iran's political and military leaders are sounding suddenly wary of President-elect Barack Obama.

"People who put on a mask of friendship, but with the objective of betrayal, and who enter from the angle of negotiations without preconditions, are more dangerous," Hossein Taeb, deputy commander of Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps, said Wednesday, according to the semiofficial Mehr News Agency.

"The power holders in the new American government are trying to regain their lost influence with a tactical change in their foreign diplomacy. They are shifting from a hard conflict to a soft attack," Taeb said.

For Iran's leaders, the only state of affairs worse than poor relations with the United States may be improved relations.
How incredibly diabolical and duplicitous of America!

First, because we set preconditions on talks, Iran wouldn't talk to us.

Now, since Obama declared his willingness to sit down and talk without preconditions, the Iranians won't talk to us.

Maybe they figured out that Obama was just trying to sucker them into the same room and then, pulling a nuclear weapon out from his sleeve, destroying them all while screaming maniacally, " Ah, ha ha ha, ha, you fell for it you silly mullahs!"

Now that would teach 'em not to mess with America!
