The Russian Infidels

In a news story titled; Russia Warns U.S. Against Striking Iran, the Associated Press reported today that the chief of Russia's general staff, General Yuri Baluyevsky, warned the United States against attacking Iran. Baluyevsky was quoted as saying “A military scenario can't be ruled out.” The story however, never explained whose military might be involved in the “scenario”. I don’t believe he meant Russia’s, as their interest in Iran appears to be financial gain. It’s a little ridiculous to think that Russia would duke it out with America over Iran. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is nuts, and he is a terrorist. Russia knows that, and deals with him anyway. Money can be a powerful driver and Russia needs money.

General Baluyevsky also said that while Iran's military cannot compare to America’s, “it is hard to predict how the Muslim world will respond to the use of force against Iran. This may stir the whole world, and it is crucial to prevent anything like that.”

Of course, we already know how the Muslim world would respond. After all, we’re the “Great Satan”. There would be an increase in terrorism targeting America, Americans, and anyone who might be perceived as helping us. No surprises there.

Konstantin Kosachev, the head of the Russian foreign affairs committee criticized Ahmadinejad’s remarks in which he called for Israel to be wiped off the map and said that the Holocaust never happened.

“Such statements don't help strengthen Iran's international prestige,” Kosachev said.
Ya think?

An “anonymous” western diplomat said “Russia is probably the strongest instrument we have going right now in trying to influence Iranian behavior.”

I don’t know about that, but I do know that in the eyes of the terrorist, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Russia and Russians are infidels, just like the United States. When Russia is not longer valuable to Iran, then Russia will be threatened with Iranian fanatical terrorism just like America and the rest of Europe. You can’t deal with, or negotiate with a terrorist.
