Iranian Chutzpa

As a federal judge once explained to me, chutzpa is a defendant who murders his parents and then throws himself at the mercy of the court as an orphan.

As the situation in Iran rapidly spirals down to nuclear confrontation, the mullahs invite the US to invest in one of their civilian reactors. That sounds like a superb idea. Nothing like freeing up those budget lines for military applications.
