Russia has been under brutal terrorist assault by al Queda for years. You would think they had more common sense than to nuclear arm the IslamoFascists. Must be massive bribes flowing to the mafia/KGB thugs who run Russia.

Firstly, you are correct regarding Russia being under attack from alQueda for years. Secondly, there is a major difference between the light-water reactor Russia is selling Iran and the heavy water variety, which can produce nuclear weapons. You might recall Clinton gave North Korea two light water reactors. Russia is also demanding Iran return the spent fuel for reprocessing. Thirdly, let's not be too hard on Russia for having a Mafia. The Mafia in Russia compares to what we had in America during the forties, and the connections between the mob and FSB are loose. The little Kansas City mob controlled most of the casinos in Vegas until the late eighties. Let's give Russia time to correct these problems.
