Russia Activates a Weapon Called Iran
Would it be just fine with Russians if America were to build a nuclear plant in Georgia, fuel it up, switch it on, and then provide Georgians with sophisticated anti-aircraft missiles they could use to shoot down any Russian effort to dismantle the plant were it proved Georgians were using it to work on a nuclear bomb?
We doubt it heartily.
How, then, can Russians explain their government’s decision to switch on an Iranian nuclear power plant last week, even as it supposedly participates in a new round of sanctions against Iran for violating nuclear safety standards? And what should we make of the government’s refusal to rule out deliveries of missiles to the rogue Islamic regime?
They can’t do so. This is Russian hypocrisy and duplicity at its most venal.
Let’s be clear: Russia is ruled by man who spent his entire life in the KGB learning how to hate and destroy the West, particularly by giving aid and comfort to America’s enemies around the globe. He played no part in the downfall of the USSR, and he did not magically transform his views when the USSR collapsed despite his best efforts to help it destroy America. Instead, he simply waited for his chance to reassert his views and pursue them to their logical conclusion.
As a result, Putin is now pursuing openly a policy of cold war against the United States, a policy no different than that of the USSR. He is providing nuclear and military technology to one of America’s most dangerous and despised enemies on the planet, believing he is free to do so because of the craven weakness of the Obama administration in Washington DC.
