Russia wouldn't have dreamed of this five years ago. But with a complete lack of leadership from the US, all bets are now off.

Nature abhors a vacuum and lack of US leadership invites Putin to fill the void.

Can you checkmate twice in the same game.

These guys are moving fast because they know our elections cause things to change quickly. With Syria and Iran off the table, I would hate to be sitting in Tel Aviv this morning.

Watch for them to get involved with Egypt next.

Obama gave Putin a big wave, from which he can create a tsunami.

He’s making himself the most important leader in the world right now, and loving every minute of it.
Like I’ve said numerous times in the past....all the people who don’t want the U.S. to be the world’s police (and that includes Obama, cuz he said so himself the other day), there are other countries who are waiting to take over the position and Russia is one of them.

Since Obama is vacating the U.S.’s position, Putin is wasting no time stepping in.
That’s not a good thing for the rest of the free world.

In the irony of all ironies an ex KGB agent will likely win the next Nobel Peace prize. Funny, he will deserve it far more than the current pretender in the White House ever did.

We are being strategically encircled, both militarily and financially. The fall of Rome will look like a 1.0 quake compared to what the Marxists around the world have in mind for us. Obama, Jarrett, Axelrod and even Michelle are salivating over the prospect as they think that they will be the beneficiaries. They should remember what happened to Mussolini and his pals.

There are so many arrogant condescending [they imagine themselves to be so-]”enlightened” [and allegedly-]”intellectuals” of the Obama Regime and his Palace Media ...

Who all criticized Sarah Palin as being the potential author of the very prospect in this story, that Obama, THEIR DEAR LEADER FOR WHOM THEY PAID (USING OUR MONEY) AND VOTED (USING DEAD PEOPLE AND ILLEGAL ALIENS), has brought down upon himself, his regime, and our country and people.

Actually, It could and most likely did happen-—repeatedly. Russia and Iran have been good buds at least since WW II. And we (US ) helped. During WWII we sent railroad experts to help improve Iran’s north/south rail road so that we could supply Stalin with aluminum and Studebaker trucks thru the back door. To this day that rail line is a major supply route for central Russia. As long as Iran has cash to buy Ivan’s stuff you can expect they will remain tight-—just no surprise here if you’ve been paying attention for the last half century.

This is not going well and Obama is not the person who should be in charge. This is the edge of war.

Obama-Putin deal didn’t stop at chemical Syria: US eases sanctions on nuclear Iran

http://www.debka.com/article/23269/Obama-Putin-deal-didn%E2%80%99t-stop-at-chemical-Syria-US-eases-sanctions-on-nuclear-Iran

Iran, and not just Russia and Syria, is taking advantage of President Barack Obama’s 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.

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.
