'Dictaplomacy' - Forbes.com: "Dictaplomacy is twofold. First, the regime continues the activities that render it a rogue state. These can be anything from pursuing an illegal nuclear weapons program to supporting international terrorist groups. Second, the regime uses diplomacy both to distract the West from those unsavory activities and to gain concessions from the West that benefit the regime.

The second strategy starts when the regime makes an obviously hostile move sure to provoke a reaction from the West, such as test-firing a missile or fabricating new centrifuges for a nuclear program."
