Yet, Russia is in bed with Iran.
That's a tough dichotomy to explain.
Russia only cares about and is looking out for their own interests, which is actually a sensible, pragmatic attitude When you look at it from that angle, their actions make a lot more sense.
They are using Iran against us — not to mention the oil Iran controls. But Russia is definitely against Muslim terrorists taking over the world.

Money. Russia will export anything to anybody. Putin is one of the richest men in Europe. The game is Pay-to-Play. Also, Egypt is an opportunity to embarrass the United States and perhaps regain some influence lost when Russians were replaced by Americans.

It’s not difficult to explain at all. Saudi Arabia and Iran are fighting proxy wars all over the middle east right now.
Saudi Arabia is funding AlQaeda/Mulsim Brotherhood and Iran is supporting Assad, etc.
Russia is backing Iran and Obama is backing the Saudis.
Russia’s working with Iran is very easy to appreciate if you remember back a half century or so. We supplied war material to the back door of Russia using the Iranian railroad. It’s how we got aluminum and Studebaker trucks to them. We actually sent some of our railroad guys there early on to modernize the line and as I recall they were able to very quickly triple the line’s capacity. To this day that line is a major supply route to mid-Russia. It’s enough of a benefit to Iran so that you do not hear the Mullahs pushing Islam krap in that direction.
You haven't read much Machiavelli, have you?
Obama has screwed over the American Government NOW he wants to screw ovwer the Egyptian Government.
He’s a Muslim Brotherhood community organizer.
