Skip to comments.Report: Putin to travel to Iran for nuclear strategy talks
Posted on 09/14/2013 8:56:05 AM PDT by Hoodat
Russian President Vladimir Putin has accepted Irans invitation to visit Tehran to work out a strategy for the Islamic regimes nuclear program, Fars News Agency reported Saturday. The West believes the Iranian program is a front for developing nuclear weapons.
Putin, seen by Irans clerical establishment as a strong opponent to America and the West especially after his successful political play on averting a U.S. missile strike on Syria was approached by Iran to protect the Islamic regime in the face of continued pressure by the West over its illicit nuclear program. Russia and the U.S. reached agreement Saturday to take control of Syrian President Bashar Assads chemical weapons arsenal by mid-2014.
Fars, the media outlet run by Irans Revolutionary Guards, said Putin will soon travel to Tehran, although details of the trip have yet to be announced. Fars said Iranian President Hassan Rowhani issued the invitation to Putin on Friday while both leaders were attending the Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. Putins spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said the Russian president accepted.
Russia could possibly take new steps in solving the Iranian nuclear dossier, Rowhani said. The Russian initiative in relation to the Syrian chemical weapons and the steps taken by the Syrian officials provide this hope that a new war can be averted in the region.
Russia looks at Iran like a good neighbor, Putin was quoted as saying. I am very happy meeting the new Iranian president and personally congratulate him for his [recent presidential] victory. We are aware of the opinions on the worlds stage in relation with Irans nuclear program; however, we have to also consider that Iran is our neighbor, a good neighbor. . . .

Obama-Putin deal didnt stop at chemical Syria: US eases sanctions on nuclear Iran
Iran, and not just Russia and Syria, is taking advantage of President Barack Obamas decision to refrain from military force against Syria to collect a shower of diplomatic and political dividends.
Our Iranian sources report that Tehran was in on all stages of the discreet Obama-Putin discussions on Syria: High-ranking Iranian officials were present in Damascus and Moscow throughout, and points of agreement were brought to Tehran for approval.
Rescue Obummer and the Democrat Party to keep conservatives out of power. I don’t agree with that notion. Let the Lefists floounder to encourage Republicans to go to the polls next time. Never forget Hildabeast is worse than Bathouse Barry. Jeb Bush is nearly as bad as Hillary. I don’t want to see these goons maintain power.
One thing about Putin, I don’t know what it is gonna take for him to wake up and conceptually understand how dangerous of a threat an Iran with the same nuclear capabilities as his nation is. I can’t imagine someone with his war experience would be completely ignorant on this. Seems like self deception here.
...”Russia wouldn’t have dreamed of this five years ago”...
Actually this is Putin’s second trip to Iran.... His first visit was in Oct. 2007 about 6 yrs. ago....that was the first official Visit for ANY Russian Leader to visit Tehran in modern history....basically ‘earmarking the Russian Iranian Alliance’.
Nobody could deal with Aben-didddy-shad, he was a commoner not a politician and could never dialog with most...so most didn’t..that included Putin who simply worked around him..and on occasion had his picture taken with him.
Meanwwhile... Putin’s worked at sharpening his image with International Leaders as well as with his own people, successfully so...... In the past few years more ‘International Conferences’ have been held ‘in Russia’ than any other nation. Putin’s now the Hostest with the Mostest... (Where once the US did this...no thanks to current Bimbo in Chief who’s been busy entertaining Hollywood instead).
Rohannie is an entirely different character...so Putin’s moving in ‘to secure this Alliance with Iran ‘openly’ now. . Washington thinks Rohannie’s a moderate but he definately is not. Rohannie will not speak what he’s thinking, he’ll say whatever the US wants to hear, like all the other Islamists working in the Whitehouse....(BTW...Irans Nuclear ambitions have already esculated under Rohannie.)
What we’re seeing, Imo, is the ‘strengthening’ of the Russian Iranian Alliance by this visit..and at a time when Putin is front and center on the world stage. Putin wants both Syria and Iran as his southern foothold....same as China does.
Continuing in the mix....The Arab leaders continue their religious war...which is between ‘Iran and Saudi’ and who’s going to win ‘Ownerhip over Islam’... who are pulling the strings throughout the Middle East. Russia and the US are the frontlines for each... and it is they who are doing all the negotiating now....even if the Us looks like blathering idiots.
Putin doesn’t need to wake up..he knows exactly what he’s doing. Iran’s overall capability is fueled by Russia, Putins has them under his boot. He wouldn’t have threatened Saudi by saying he’d cut Iran loose on Saudi (if they stirred up the Chechians during the games) if he didn’t control them.
That’s another story..suffice it to say the first week of Aug. Saudi offered Putin billions to back off from Syria while Obama was pussy footing around. Putin refused for obvious reasons..so the Sauds threatened to sic the Chechians on the games. HE countered with unleashing Iran on them if they did that.
The US has zip zero understanding of the dynamics in the ME...and many have tried to tell them so...to no avail. So here we are...with no credibility in the ME at all...and certainly not with Putin.
Putins’ a huge oil man....as you know how he made his big money....”Plundering Israel” would be ideal for him with his port in Syria..better said accessible to those Oil fields in the Mediterranean.
That's why he's willing to give up Syria's CW'S....Assad is not going to prevent Putins longer range agenda...small price to pay for what he stands to gain..or so he thinks in his mind. He was one very shrewd operator!
Was listening to some Jewish discussion about this today...very interesting as they are Christian. They clearly see what's happening here...and Bi-Bi isn't closed eyed either.
Its a sorry day when the world no longer respects or for that matter fears the strength of the US President, you did’nt have this crap when Bush and Cheney were in charge. Every President has mi-steps but these 2 Obama and Biden are clueless.
They messed around, Bush was not afraid to get nasty and rip into them. Now we have no credibility, the Office of POTUS is sullied and spineless with this moron. Hell we all said it in 2008 it is dangerous putting a community organizer with little to no experience into this job but I think we need more checks and balances on the Presidency to prevent this crap from ever happening again. As it is, This President has become unaccountable for anything and we somehow need to stop that. Maybe if we had a bit more like the UK do with Prime Ministers questions where the PM must face congress once a week to answer for the Govt’s actions.
We as Americans just have such difficulty accepting that we ‘have to’ become weaker so ultimately God can wipe these beasts out....then every knee will bow.
They didn’t like Bush any better than they do Obama....but they did respect him and knew he’d carry through with his threats.
Obama walked into the big leaguers ‘field’ (uninvited and with no experience)..took a bat and struck out over and over...threw it down and ‘walked off the field’... and left Kerry as the waterboy for the players.
...”you didnt have this crap when Bush and Cheney were in charge”....
9/11 was America’s final wake up call, IMO. Most stirred at best. Only true Patriots understood....
Bush and Chenny loved this country Obama never has nor will he....therein is the difference...beside that he’s overall weak...and so was the country that elected him...and we’ve been fighting to regain our country “under God” since...
HE said no....the focus must now be on the ME. just as it is.
Entirely right, most still do not realise that the only way to deal with this lot is to remove the threat, they understand no less, they only understand death and they dont care who you are, they will kill you.
Why we continually wander into these situations with band aids when they walk into them determined to cut off our heads, makes no sense.
There is a good line i knew when i was in the middle east and heard over and over....”they will come invited into your home, break bread with you, eat dinner with you then get up and kill you with no remorse” Once you have a mentality bred into something, its hard to get it out and i know from experience, they are always a muslim first, they have no loyalty above that. Which is why i know Obama lies when he says he is not a muslim because he is, you do not walk out of that religion unless its in a box.
Boy, are you spot on. But only a few in this world regard the incredible events we are witnessing. A third of the Bible is prophecy, and Jesus commanded us in Luke 21 to look up, wait and watch for His signs and these things to unfold, and to heed these events.
Even many Christians have become scoffers themselves to God's Word itself, preferring the "here and now" trite phrases and discounting God's eternal work and plan for humanity. They even have become mockers to those who look at these events and wonder if they are signs of the times.
But God is at work. I could never, ever had imagined 20-25 years ago a scenario where the US was Israel's enemy, not its friend, that Russia (the Soviets) would be given the keys to the world's foreign policy, and that we would be seeing the US as weak and hollowed out militarily as it is today.
But here we are.
It is, and Israel stands alone in the world. I believe it is God's plan to allow her to be abandoned, so that God may show that He alone is their God.
Look at this amazing address video by Netanyahu to his people. It is short (4.5 mins), and in English. Netanyahu: Jewish people are strong because 'we are united'
I wish we had such a leader in the United States.
...”you do not walk out of that religion unless its in a box”...
I tend to agree with that for the most part...Remember that guy who owned a Radio or TV station...beheaded his wife right there at the station!HE had even been a guest at the Whitehouse and supposedly one of the “moderates” flaunted before us.
You cannot know what will set off those deep seeded roots...too risky to chance IMO. When push comes to shove ISlam will rule their heart and mind over all else...and they will always have justification, before their own culture, for doing whatever.
Yes. Putin Knows that Obama is a weakling. He can smell weakness like a shark can smell blood in the water.
Obama, Biden, Kerry and everyone else in the Administration are all so clueless about the world around them.
Makes decent people want to vomit.
I think possible we’ll see a Russian/Iran and other ME allies come against Israel first and be defeated before the final battle.
These are God’s battles..not man’s..no matter how many leaders ‘think’ they are the ones in charge.
It is interesting watching Putin put on his show....we get to see how deception works as even some Freepers are being fooled by this Wolf....there are always counterfeits of the good...right now Putin’s a good example.
The GOP is not going to ‘reverse that trend’ and I will not vote for my congressman who criticizes Obama, then brings in John Boehner for a fundraiser and says he is part of a team led by Boehner.
Both parties are moving this country deeper into debt and bigger into government.
After 9/11, with George W. Bush as our president, these things happened.
1. A new Department of Homeland Security was created.
2. The Transportation Security Administration was created.
3. The Patriot Act was passed opening the door to increased surveillance of communications by the National
The Republicans criticize Obamacare just like the Democrat unions do but they don’t intend to stop it or shut it down.
Both political machines are working in sync an its way past time for real conservatives to lead us in a different direction, either inside or outside the Republican Party.
The Soviet intelligence agency where Mr. Putin came from was able to bore deep into Iran during the Soviet occupation in World War II.
From 1941 to 1945 Iran was occupied by the Soviets in the north and the British in the south so war material from the US and Britain could be shipped in to help Stalin.
I wasn’t speaking about parties. I was speaking about us. I am no longer a republican.
