Russia is virtually powerless, therefore I find it very very hard to see them posing a major threat in the international arena. especially since the united nations is on our side this time.....
MOSCOW 2 Oct. (IPS) Iranian Defence Minister Admiral Ali Shamkhani and his Russian counterpart Sergei Ivanov signed a joint defence and military co-operation pact and immediately assured that the agreement is not a threat to other nations.
No third country will be threatened through the defense and military co-operation of the two countries", the Iranian Minister said Tuesday after signing the accord, estimated by Russian experts at seven billions US Dollars.
"Russia and Iran in practice, and not in words, are fighting this plague of the century" the Russian Defence Minister added, referring to the US-led international coalition aimed at "uprooting" terrorism.
