Iran meeting in NY scrapped after Russia balks


uk.news.yahoo.com

Foreign ministers from major powers will not meet as planned this week in New York to discuss new sanctions against Iran due to Moscow's opposition, said U.S. and Russian officials on Tuesday. "There is not going to be a ... meeting," said State Department spokesman Sean McCormack. In Moscow, Russia's foreign ministry, angered by U.S. calls for it to be penalized over its war with Georgia, said it saw no need for major powers to meet on Iran's nuclear program on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly in New York.

Well Russia look like they are standing firm, and responding to a recent push against Russia by the US. Either way I sure hope they resolve this peacefully.


Russian resistance follows a speech by U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice last week in which she said the world must stand up to intensified Russian aggression. Rice is set to meet Lavrov in New York on Wednesday. Russia has been angered by Washington's rhetoric since the brief Georgian war last month. "We would really want Washington to finally make up its mind on relations with Moscow," Nesterenko said. "If they want to punish Russia, that is one thing. If they agree that we have common interests which need to be jointly promoted, then it's a different story. One can, say paraphrasing Condoleezza Rice's words, 'You can't have both.'"

....Condoleezza Rice's words, 'You can't have both.'

Sure you can have both. In fact, we BETTER have both. Because that's exactly what we've had with Russia for a very long time- a love/hate relationship. Just like with China. And probably many others. Publicly everyone shakes hands, while not so secretly spying on and subverting the other at the same time.

And unless someone cares to give up a CIA or KGB, it'll need to continue on that path indefinitely or face more proxy wars. At least.

Maybe one day those hand shakes will actually mean something for the people instead of for the NWO.
