Bill on sanctions against Russian cos. submitted to U.S. Congress

WASHINGTON, November 14 (RIA Novosti) - A bill demanding sanctions against Russian companies and organizations supplying armaments to Iran and Syria has been submitted to the U.S. House of Representatives.

Five congressmen said the companies violate U.S. laws banning arms deliveries to Tehran and Damascus.

Russia has said all its arms deliveries to the two Mideast nations are in line with international laws, but U.S. authorities have repeatedly called on Russia to stop arms deliveries to countries Washington considers a threat.

President Vladimir Putin said in October that Russia will not allow other countries to put restrictions on its arms exports.

Well, the situation with Russia seem to be heating up a little. This is yet another thing that shows us again that Cold War II has already begun.

Yes the situation does seem to be heating up a little bit. I won't go so far as to say cold war two just yet. The reference say the sanctions are against companies and organisations, not the government. That's something I guess. Although be it the weapons systems that were sold do sound to be top notch missile systems.

Can't see that being too successful, not unless Europe wants it's gas supply turned off . Or that bill only affects American companies dealing with them ?

Gerbil
a U.S. bill does mean that is affects U.S. only.
My views on this at this time are undecided.
I remember the cold war, and I think the U.S. and Soviet Republics make much better friends the enemies.

Gerbil,
I think you hit a very big point there, something I would like to see happen, but I doubt it will any time soon.
