Which Gemara does this remind you of?

Taken from Fox News report regarding Iran's nuclear program:

European nations have weighed adding a light-water reactor to a package of incentives meant to persuade Tehran to permanently give up enrichment — or face the threat of U.N. Security Council sanctions.

But in a nationally televised speech before thousands of people in central Iran, Ahmadinejad cast scorn on the proposal.

--> "Do you think you are dealing with a 4-year-old child to whom you can give some walnuts and chocolates and get gold from him?" he said.

(I don't mean to take the Iran situation lightly. Frankly, it scares me. This might be my way of dealing with it.)

Very close...

I was thinking of the Gemara about from what age a Tinok has Daas to be Koneh - "Tzror VeZorko Egoz VeNotlo".

When the kid takes the walnut - he's a Bar Daas. This Hitlerijad is a Rasha - he won't take the "walnut" - he'd rather murder millions of Jews.
