Iran

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad accused Russia's president on Friday of turning against Tehran and joining the U.S. in spreading lies about its nuclear program, in the latest sign that Iran is drifting apart from a one-time key backer.

Ahmadinejad said Dmitry Medvedev entered a "propaganda drama" directed by Washington by saying last week that Iran was getting closer to being able to develop nuclear weapons.

The Iranian president has had harsh words for Moscow since it became apparent that Russia would support last month's new United Nations sanctions agai

Well, well, well. What have we here? I guess it was a matter of time before Akmanutjob spoke out against thier ebloved ally Russia. I guess with Russia dragging their feet on the delivery of the S-300 system along with this sanctions deal, the Iranians just arent feeling the love.

Russia finds itself in a difficult position i must admit. They like doing business with Iran but they want better relations with the West even more. Its going to be intereresting to see how things play out, but Irans President probably shouldnt be speaking out against Russia like that.

This is propaganda at its best. Russia fakes turning on Iran then tells US Iran is years away from nuclear weapons to buy time while Iran completes there work. And then the Republican party plays fear to try and regain control of the goverment.

"The streets of our country are in turmoil. The universities are filled with students rebelling and rioting. Communists are seeking to destroy our country. Russia is threatening us with her might, and the Republic is in danger. Yes - danger from within and without. We need law and order! Without it our nation cannot survive." Adolf Hitler

Propaganda? No. Russia has always been a free agent of sorts. Everyone knows that Iran not only cannot make nukes, but has no plans to develop them.

Point me to one shred of evidence that they are building a nuke, opposed to making enriched uranium for nuclear power, and I'll show you why it's misconstrued, exaggerated, or completely full of ***t.

The only thing that exists is a "leaked report" that was proven to be forged by Israel.

Want to know why you are currently afraid of Iran? Because they stopped using US denomination to trade in petrol dollars. They switched to Euros, along with Iraq. When was that? Just a couple years before we ended up invading. It's all about and economic control in general.

No. No one wants to invade Iran and they are hardly a threat worth mentioning. In the end, they have one nuke, we have 5000+. What are they going to do with their nuke? Honestly?

There is no propaganda game here. Just the mindless babel of a crazed leader who's time is at an end.

Yep. Iranian leaders are pretty luny. If the US and Russia are even agreeing on measures against them, then what does that say?

Russia promises Iran fuel despite sanctions
Wed Jul 14, 7:42 am ET
MOSCOW (AFP) – Russian companies are ready to supply fuel to energy-hungry Iran, despite unilateral US and EU sanctions targeting Tehran's oil and gas sectors, the Russian energy minister said on Wednesday.

Russia has already expressed its dissatisfaction with the sanction measures agreed last month by the United States and the European Union to punish Iran for its defiance in the nuclear standoff.

These go beyond the new UN sanctions that were agreed by Russia and other world powers which mainly target military-related industries.

"Sanctions cannot hinder us," Shmatko said after a meeting in Moscow with Iranian Oil Minister Massoud Mir Kazemi, quoted by Russian news agencies.

Probably Amajinahdad being misquoted again...the russians were trying to humor the rabid Hitlery by agreeing to sanctions that don't matter but are still considered an act of war legally. than the usual double cross from the US...

Well at least you'll admit he spews propaganda. That's more than many bleeding heart apologists here at ATS will ever admit.

The US government lies. That is not the topic. The Iranian government and especially its president lies. This is the topic. The president is insane. This is a fact.

Hmmm....interesting development.

Perhaps the truth is that the US citizens would so vehemently oppose another war that something drastic had to be done to drum up public support to begin bombing Iran?

If Russia would turncoat, surely that indicates that Iran is ripe for the picking, right?

Its a set up. At least i see it that way.

I said it before and I'll say it again. We feed the Chinese dragon to prevent a world war. Iran is just another sadvich for it. Sad but true until we are no longer addicted to oil.

Detente And Modernization
According to a report in "Russian Newsweek," Moscow is planning to reorient its foreign policy in a more pragmatic and pro-Western direction. The story by journalists Konstantin Gaaze and Mikhail Zigar, which cites a recent Foreign Ministry policy paper, says the move is part of an effort to attract badly needed investment to modernize the country's crumbling infrastructure and diversify its economy to make it less dependent on energy exports:

The idea behind the document is that Russia intends -- not just in words but also in deeds -- to have a foreign policy in which there are not friends and enemies, but only interests. The country's economy needs to be modernized and foreign policy must also work to solve this problem. A senior official at the Foreign Ministry who participated in the drafting of the document confirmed that in place of a Cold War there will be Detente.

The policy paper's preamble, written by Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, calls for "the strengthening of relations of interdependence with the world's leading powers," with the most desirable partners being the United States and the European Union.

According to the "Russian Newsweek" story, the "triumphant optimism of Russian leaders in a time of record-high oil prices is a thing of the past. In the post-crisis world, Russia is forced to look for friends and start a useful economic ties." It cites an unidentified Foreign Ministry official as saying that "the crisis has shown that Russia cannot develop independently."

The report (which, judging from the sourcing, appears to be the result of an authorized leak from the Foreign Ministry) comes as an increasing number of stories are appearing in the Russian media calling for closer ties with the United States and the European Union. Writing last week in "Yezhednevnyy Zhurnal," for example, Aleksey Makarkin of the Center for Political Technologies made a similar argument for engagement with the West:

[The authorities] have now begun -- at least at the conceptual level -- to develop measures to kick the oil and gas habit. The modernization of the country, however, cannot be carried out in isolation from the most economically developed -- and at the same time democratic -- states. You can not get investments from North Korea, or innovations from Venezuela.

Maybe Russia is changing there minds about there foreign policy.

"The modernization of the country, however, cannot be carried out in isolation."

"You can not get investments from North Korea, or innovations from Venezuela."

Yep-Russia will be aligning more with the West in the future. Russi, the EU and the US will be (and are) the backbone of the NWO. China will no choice but to get on board.
