In other words, don’t mess with my money. Iran is a good revenue stream for Russia, and Russia won’t give that up, even if it means nukes closer in their back yard. And don’t forget China. They’re getting some cash from Tehran also. So they won’t like to see that interrupted. They’re no different than us in that sense. Don’t mess with our revenue stream. I think we should take a different approach with Iran. Let’s get some McDonald’s franchises there. Fatten people up and increase heart disease. Then we Can set up shop with our big pharma companies and charge top dollar for blood pressure, cholesterol, and other self inflicted illnesses. And hey, we can make money off the whole Islamic thing. I saw a jeans company that makes Islamic specific jeans, large pockets, high waist band. Let’s not go to war with them, let’s do what we do best, make people sick then sell them on a health maintenance plan. For those who don’t know me, I’m being funny.
Oh, and by the way, we’re in no condition to go to war with anyone else anyway. For those who continue to think that you can just high-tech your way to victory, to take and hold terroitory, ground forces in massess will always be needed.
United Press International – Security & Terrorism – Russia warns U.S. on Iran moves Russia’s foreign minister Wednesday warned the United States not to take military action against Iran. "The Russian foreign minister said Wednesday U.S.-led multinational foreign forces in Iraq must not conduct military operations outside the country, including against Iran," the RIA Novosti news agency reported. "The multinational force in Iraq should abide strictly by the UN Security Council’s mandate, which does not provide for any operations outside the country," Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told the Lebanese magazine Al-Watan Al-Arabi in an interview. "The escalation of the conflict and its possible spread beyond the Iraqi borders will inevitably result in catastrophic consequences and not for the Middle East alone," Lavrov said according to the report. "I believe Washington understands this."
