"An attack on Iran is an attack on Russia." Vladimir Putin

posted by Bill Arnett @ 2:22 PM Permalink

From the Asia Times Online comes another confirmation of the theory I have long held:
The barely reported highlight of Russian President Vladimir Putin's visit to Tehran for the Caspian Sea summit last week was a key face-to-face meeting with Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

A high-level diplomatic source in Tehran tells Asia Times Online that essentially Putin and the Supreme Leader have agreed on a plan to nullify the George W Bush administration's relentless drive towards launching a preemptive attack, perhaps a tactical nuclear strike, against Iran. An American attack on Iran will be viewed by Moscow as an attack on Russia.
It could not be any clearer that Russia will defend their interests in Iran, and it wouldn't surprise me at all that Russia could attack our forces in Iraq and out at sea and kill, possibly, tens of thousands of Americans.

Our forces are stretched too thin, exhausted from the quagmire of Iraq, lacking vital equipment, and would be able to do very little if Russia retaliates. We could suffer the worst military defeat in all of Americas history.

And all for a madman already losing two wars simultaneously.

Right on. Bush and Cheney make the classic minimax mistake of only looking at the potential gains without bothering to consider the worst case scenario. (cf. Napoleon in Russia). Not what you'd call a credential to present for Mensa membership.

I am trying to contact the Bill Arnett who knew da Passano, Kunkin, Burroughs, late 70's and 80's Hollywood. If this is you, Bill, please respond. If not, please forget I said anything. hart_wms AT yahoo DOT com

Thank you for your comment, but I am not the Bill Arnett whom you seek. There was absolutely no harm in asking and I do hope you will continue visiting this site and making such astute observations.
