Iran: Peace for our time, take 2?

Reuters reports
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Sunday he hoped for further talks with world powers concerned about Tehran's nuclear programme, a day after two days of negotiations ended in stalemate and with no clear agreement to meet again.
"If the other party is determined and committed to law, justice and respect, there is hope that in the next sessions good results would be achieved," Ahmadinejad said in a televised speech to a crowd in the city of Rasht.
As the Iranian regime continues to buy time to develop its arsenal, the West is advised to open a history book, or at the very least, heed warnings from its allies in the Arab world. In 2009, Deputy Supreme Commander of the United Arab Armed Forces Emirates Prince Mohammed bin Zayed wrote a memo to the US, in which he urged the United States not to ‘appease’ Iran and desrcibed Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as ‘Hitler,’ according to Meir Javedanfar from the Diplomat.

Similarly, King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia has asked the United States to ‘cut off the head of the snake’ and strike Iran’s nuclear program. King Hamad ibn Isa Al Khalifa of Bahrain has said: ‘That programme must be stopped. The danger of letting it go on is greater than the danger of stopping it.’
