It looks like Secretary of State Rice is giving Old Europe just enough rope on the Iranian Nuclear Disarmament issue to potentially hang themselves. Our strategy seems to be for the "bad cop" America to wait just outside the interrogation room door making threatening sounds while the Iranians are read the riot act by the "good cop" Europeans.

Unfortunately, it appears the Europeans are likely to go the way of the DooDoo Bird, just like the UN Security Council did with Iraq. President Bush seems to have adopted Teddy Roosevelt's recommendation to "walk softly and carry a big stick."

Let's pray the suicidal wing of Iran's ruling Mullahs don't make Saddam's mistake of misunderestimating President Bush's determination to spread liberty throughout the world, particularly in Syria, Iran and North Korea. Do these madmen really think Allah can protect them from the wrath of the Coalition of the Willing, which will include Israel the next go round?

Or, maybe we should take Senator Biden's recommendation (hattip: Jayson at Polipundit):
Even if Iran was a full democracy like India, it would want nuclear capability, like India. What the world needed to address was Iran’s emotional needs, with a nonaggression pact. – Senator Joe Biden, as paraphased by the Boston Globe, February 2005
The braying donkey is the perfect icon of the modern Democrat party as personified by Senators Biden, Kennedy, and Kerry. Biden demonstrated his command of the emotional needs of the Iranian Mullahs when he stood up their delegation for dinner in Davos last week. So much for practicing what he preaches.
