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.
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.

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.
