Russia's nuclear agency says that it will fuel Iran's first nuclear power plant, the Bushehr Plant, next weekend, defying U.S. calls to hold off until the Ahmadinejad regime proves it's not developing nuclear weapons at the same time the Obama administration plans to buy 21 Russian-made choppers for use in Afghanistan, rather than buy American-made.

“MOSCOW Russia will load fuel into Iran’s first nuclear power plant next week despite U.S. demands to prevent Iran obtaining nuclear energy until the country proves that it’s not pursuing a weapons capacity, officials said Friday.”
What do you expect from a non-American pResident?
But what if the Russian helicopters are cheaper? And what if we can save lots of money by having out subs and ICBMs made in Red China? We can save SO MUCH MONEY!
The way Obama runs through OUR money, do you really think he CARES?
BTW, Defense spedning wa sa budget cut.
Sometimes CHEAPER isn’t always better ... . Knowing Obama’s mindset they are probably CRAP and we are paying a premium for them. Obama is nrich and he wants to bankrupt us asap.
Russia Says It Will Begin Fueling Iran's First Nuclear Plant Next Week
Where did you get the title you used?
Russian helps Iran
That implies one guy, one Russian. Surely you didn't just MAKE IT UP?
Bo, I didn’t make it up!
It was on the Fox News home page with that title. I did insert (Obama) in the title but other than that it is the title. It’s still here http://www.foxnews.com/ Clicking on the article on the home page will send you to the longer article at
In this case the Russian helicopters can do something necessary that current American models can’t.
Geez, just for the “hearts and minds” aspect it is a lame decision. How will the Afghanis feel about Russian choppers in the sky again? Will Charlie Wilson please pick up the red phone.
There’s a recession on, Bin Ladin has declared war on us, we got to create more jobs in Russia, don’t you see?
We also need to take meaningfully heavy military loads high into the afghan mountains to fight the enemy where they are.
Current American helicopters simply don’t have the high altitude lift capability do that.
Should we just cede the high ground to the taliban?
Do you really believe Obama CARES?
I know you know better than that.
It is an amusing thought, though.
Obama is determined to lose in Afganistan. If he insults others along the way, so much the better!
