Iran and North Korea Adopt Same Nuclear Negotiating Ploys

After reading this Little Green Footballs post, it occurred to me that Iran has adopted the same nuclear negotiating ploy as it "Axis of Evil" ally, Kim il-Jong's North Korea. "Cheat and retreat" indeed.

Interesting how it seems to be buying time for both countries. Dangle a proposal, wait for a nibble, then withdraw the bait. Then come up with another tasty morsal.

Sometimes diplomacy is painful to watch.

Update: Speaking of which, Secretary of State Rice is traveling again and the International Herald Tribune says it's to deal with the North Korean impasse.
