Russia Sees Weakness

September 24, 2009

One of Russia’s favorite ways to annoy the United States has been Iran. Since the mid 90’s, Russia has been helping Iran build a nuclear power plant. Moscow has held up from completing the plant in order to keep up  the Russian arsenal of threats against the United States. Russia has delayed the delivery of  the S-300 air defense system.

Worse, Russia blocked hard-hitting sanctions on Iran in the U.N.

 Russia is in the  cat bird’s seat in its negotiations with the United States.  As long as Russia can prop up Iran against the United States, Tehran is more capable of limiting U.S. pressure.

The United States has a sanctions plan that will bypass the U N so Russia can not use a  veto. Will the U S stand tall?
