Putin and Iranian Nuke Plans:


Ahmadinejad rolls out red carpet for Putin

by Mondoreb

Russian President Vladimir Putin continued a Russian foreign policy based on "what's bad for the United States is good for Russia". He was in Tehran for a five-country conference on nuclear power.

From CNN:
{H}e and the other leaders agreed that "peaceful nuclear activities must be allowed" in the region. Commenting on Iran's controversial nuclear program, Putin said the "Iranians are cooperating with Russian nuclear agencies and the main objectives are peaceful objectives."

Russia is building Iran's first nuclear power plant and has resisted the push by the U.S. and its allies for stronger U.N. sanctions against Tehran.

The leaders of Iran, Russia, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Azerbaijan met Tuesday to reach agreement on issues relating to the sharing and regulating of the Caspian Sea.
News accounts of a few months ago spoke of Russian reluctance to complete the Iranian nuclear reactor, but Putin's words have eased fears. With Russia's battling Muslims in Chechnya, Putin has Russia playing a risky game. Iranian nukes could find their way into Chechnyan hands more quickly than terrorists attempting infiltration into the U.S.

If Iran obtains nuclear capability, there may be a race among terrorists to see where the second mushroom cloud (after Israel) appears.
