Iran arms plan worries Putin
“SOCHI, Russia: Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed concern about Iran’s atomic programme yesterday and said it must not be allowed to acquire nuclear weapons.
“Russia has co-operated with Iran and we will continue to do so, but like our European colleagues France, Germany, Britain, and the US, we are concerned by the fact that questions are being raised about Iran’s nuclear programme,” Putin said.
“We are categorically against an enlargement of the club of nuclear powers, and that includes Iran,” Putin said after talks with the German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder and French President Jacques Chirac.”
Remember the post below in which I mentioned Russia and the US aligned against the Muslim world. It could happen. Part of the challenge is trying to avoid making it a battle against the “Muslim world.” That is problematic for all sorts of reasons and really not necessary.
