Iran Discovers Chutzpah

chutzpah: noun; gall, cheek. Child kills both parents then appeals to the court for leniency as an orhpan.

Jerusalem Post's article Iran complains to UN over Sneh 'threat' provides another elegant example:

Last week, Sneh said that Israel "was not advocating Israeli preemptive military action against Iran" but that "even the last resort is sometimes the only resort."

Sneh's comments have ignited a flurry of responses, including the Iranian UN Ambassador Muhammad Javad Zarif's submission of a complaint to Secretary-General Kofi Annan and the Security Council on Friday.

As some talented dude once said, "All the world's a stage".

In this case, the main feature is tragic farce.

UPDATE: Great minds think alike.
