Putin Backs Nuclear Talks With Chavez


www.reuters.com

NOVO-OGARYOVO, Russia (Reuters) - Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said he was ready to consider helping Venezuela develop a nuclear energy program after meeting the country's President Hugo Chavez on Thursday....
The offer of support for Chavez, an outspoken critic of Washington, comes days after Russia blocked a meeting amongst foreign ministers of major powers at the United Nations in New York to discuss sanctions against Iran over its nuclear plans.

It is interesting for an American to keep one eye on what's going on far from Wall Street during these exceptionally-tense times. Of course, if any type of negotiations are happening, then the effect on Wall Street should not be disregarded. That said, it is a big world in which we live, albeit shrinking. And these may be ideal times for the USA's rivals to assemble and position themselves.

What do you guys think? I'm no foreign policy expert, but I do have a good sense of my own intuition.

And I know that Chavez snubs his nose at the US. And Putin, well, he's just one tough S.O.B., and won't hesitate to strengthen his strategy on the global playing field.

The visit of the outspoken South American leader comes a week after Russian strategic nuclear bombers flew to Venezuela. ... In a second military maneuver, Russian warships are sailing to the Caribbean for joint military exercises with Venezuela.
Russia has made clear recent military exercises are a response to the United States, which last month sent warships to deliver humanitarian aid to Georgia.

We really can't fault 'em for trying, now, can we? This should be a particularly busy autumn.

Funny how Putin's move from being the elected President to being the appointed Prime Minister hasn't changed his role in the government at all. Isn't it? It's as if the current President is letting Vladimir be President. Wonder why that is?

Russia is clearly going overboard.
And letting there ego get the better of themselves.
They need to calm the hell down and think what they are doing.
Its kind of like one huge peeing contest.
With the whole of humanity at stake.

Man's been holding that contest since the dawn of civilization...at least!

And as far as "ego" is concerned, again, we're talking about human nature here.

I hear what you're saying about the consequences and repercussions of these moves. However, what can the US really say, without seeming hypocritical. Not that they care...

But wait!Georgia invaded Russia did they not?Georgia is threat to world peace!/rolleyes- back to reality-now the world will see for themselves what russia is like.

I got an idea!How about the United states withdraws from NATO like many posters on ATS have said and let Europe fend for itself.I mean our tax dollars are better spent here at home than on nations who dont like us.

USA and their allies do. What type of question is that? If Russia sits there then USA/Nato can continue business as usual with out anyone to put them in check.

Who has any moral right to deny Venezuela access to nuclear technology? Surely not the U.S. There isn't even mention if the nuclear technology is military or civilian. If Venezuela wants to obtain it - it has every right to do so. Personally - I don't see why Venezuela needs it, but it is up to its government.

Look at U.S. allies that have nuclear weapons - primarily Pakistan and Israel. How stable are they? Are they anymore stable or less dangerous than Venezuela (or even Iran/North Korea) is? Giving these two nations nuclear technology caused one of the biggest geopolitical consequences in the last 1/2 century. Most of the countries that want nuclear tech now - want it because these two countries already have it.
