Putin Posied to Retaliate Against Obama by Trashing Iran Deal
The Daily Beast ^ | 7/18/2014 | Josh Rogin

Posted on 07/18/2014 7:00:32 PM PDT by Mariner

Now that the U.S.-Russia relationship has broken down, Moscow could throw a wrench into the teetering nuclear negotiations with Iran.

The escalating tensions between Washington and Moscow, brought to fever by the MH17 airliner disaster, are finally to the point where they threaten to spoil the number one item on President Obama’s foreign policy agenda: the nuclear talks with Iran. The man doing the threatening is Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Earlier this week, Putin promised to retaliate against the United States for new sanctions targeting his friends and business associates, as well as large Russian defense, energy, and financial firms. On Thursday, Putin called President Obama to alert him a civilian jetliner had crashed over Eastern Ukraine, a tragedy the U.S. says was caused by a missile shot from a Russian-made SA-11 mobile surface to air missile system located in a separatist-held area.

Putin’s next call was to none other than the President of Iran, Hassan Rouhani.

"Kirk is part of a chorus of GOP senators calling for the administration to impose more sanctions on Russia in the wake of the MH17 disaster. That includes measures like the Russian Aggression Prevention Act, which would cut all senior Russian officials, their companies, and their supporters off from the world’s financial system; target any Russian entities owned by the Russian government or sanctioned individuals across the arms, defense, energy, financial services, metals, or mining sectors in Russia; and ban all Russian banks from the U.S. financial system".

and that right there folks is a CERTAIN recipe for existential war.

All so politicians here can huff and puff over little of consequence.

Obviously Obama can’t be trusted to deal with it and the EU won’t.

“But I thought the reset button had been pushed.”

Only RASSISS! and “CRAZY PEOPLE” would dare to think such a thing!
That was the Current Truth of the past, and it has been changed to the current truth of the Now. Just ask anyone at CNN or NBC News about this.

You aren’t a crazy racist, are you?/s?

Obama wont tolerate that,
he will bring the wrath of hell down on Russia for this, as soon as he gets back from his fundraising and golfing trips.

He heard about this on the news, just like we did.
He is mad as hell about it, mad as hell I say.

He can "posie" with Obama and tiptoe through the tulips. Maybe they're two of a kind in their fiscal doctrine.

If Romney were in charge, Russia would have been declared a terrorist state akin to Iran by this point. Which they are.

There never was any “Iran deal.”

The idea that Obama’s “Russian reset” was going to undo the damage Bush did to US-Russian relations, and that the Russians would then somehow convince Iran not to build a nuclear bomb was an article of faith for the liberal media.

Putin's terrorist sponsoring Russia IS THE SOURCE of the Iranian nuclear threat. Iran would not have any nuclear program at all if it wasn't for Putin building them a reactor and supplying them with enriched uranium.

Does anyone really believe that Iran isn’t hard at work making a nuke? If you do, you will believe anything Obama says.

Iran deal? Makes me laugh.

Not a moving company in the world that's big enough to pack up and move that wrath of hell from here to Russia...

” Putin called President Obama to alert him a civilian jetliner had crashed over Eastern Ukraine,”

I suppose it takes Putin to alert Obama to the fact that there are things going on in the world outside of his endless political fun raising and golf trips.

You know what’s funny is that what the Russians think of Americans is slightly milder than what Iranians think. Not all Russians, but there’s been a good running campaign to convince the Russian people that going by the American way bankrupts the Russian economy and that Yeltsin was a fool for following western economic counsel. That’s the reason why Putin gets re-elected by the Russians despite so much of the U.S. despising him. The Russian electorate could care less about what the U.S. politicians think when they consider the Americans to be a bunch of #$%^&#%.

Well, Russia does support Iran. If we strike at Iran or some countries allied with Russia, the threat is there that Russia will retaliate against us. IMHO, Iran will eventually get the nuke, unless something catastrophic out of nature suddenly destroys the Russian threat.

I don’t really have a great fascination with what Putin says or doesn’t say.

Im simply concerned with the interest of Texas and the South. I don’t see anything to be gained for us by taking sides in the Ukrainian conflict. What has Ukraine done to defend us in our time of need? What has Ukraine even promised to do for us?

You don’t secure alliances by giving away the only thing we have to trade (mutual defense) for free. Frankly we have far more need of Russia’s support in counterbalancing an increasingly aggressive and powerful communist china than we have in keeping Crimea a part of largely useless Ukraine.

Frankly I need someone to give me a compelling reason why we should risk everything so that the nation of Ukraine(who has offered us nothing) can keep Crimean). I don’t see the pro-american math.

Yup. Relations have been reset back to pre-Reagan.

MH17 was shot down by the Russians or their idiot mercenaries occupying part of Ukraine, using Russian missiles.

IOW, Josh Rogin at The Daily Beast is carrying water for Pooty-Poot, just like all the rest of the partisan media shills are starting to do.

In order to distract attention from Putin’s terrorist act, the shills can’t suddenly start to cover Obama’s manufactured illegals crisis, or his Fast and Furious scandal, or Keystone XL — so they’ll be back in their anti-Israel business.
