|I don't think that simply stating a language is more or less difficult to pronounce for me cuts it -- not to mention that I may be delusional about the whole issue. I will also skip stating the obvious by saying that practice should make it easier (d'oh!)
This makes me curious: Is there any language which can be pronounced perfectly by all non-mute human?

All humans learn to pronounce perfectly their native languages through training. All humans are remarkably similar, so I'd conclude all humans can pronounce perfectly all languages if given proper training, at the right time (assuming time-window hypothesis may hold some water).
Without training, it's a guess for the educated... but I assume you should choose something with few phonemes, not many un-/voiced pairs, etc. for maximal chance of success. Hawaiian, perhaps?
Merry XMAs, and Happy New Year you all, btw ;-) [tumbleweed tumbles]
