So I'm watching the news, and apparently they are close to making a military alliance. Putin is even funding Iran's first nuclear plant. Now I have nothing against Russia, and I have no doubt there are countless great people, but I don't see how this can mean anything but bad for the rest of Europe and the USA. Putin threatened to nuke US allies in Europe if the US built a nuclear defense system in Europe (I can't remember what country it was planned to be built in) and it's quite obvious the leader of Iran (forgot his name) is bent on destroying Israel...

anyone have any thoughts?

Russia's also pretty close with China.

But I don't know what to make of all this. I guess we'll have to wait and see how this turns out. But yeah, it does make Russian-American/European relations difficult.

lmao my first thought too.

Really, what's the deal with war mongering leaders? Bush, Putin, Kim Jong Il, and the leader of Iran...

How is this news? Russia's always been close to countries in the Middle East.

this is news because there are rumors of a US military strike on Iran (i really hope not).

Money, power, notoriety...that usually whats up with them.

You americans are so controlled by your government and media..whenever i click onto an american news channel it is so self absorbed and giving out these mixed messages of paranoia. Americans have been living in paranoid fear since the cold war.

Iran's president is Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. I know that cuz i hate the bastard. Not only does he want the country of Israel gone, he also wants the entire "western world " or zions, as he likes to say, gone, as in Europe and North America.

the cold war is back basically, but good for the Iranians, at least they won't be attacked directly by the US as the US don't want to get Russia involved

Yep.

We [the leaders,personally I think they all need to be shot by PacMan with a potato-gun] think that everyone hates us entirely,then we try to do good around the world instead of solving our own problems,F*cking both up even more,and are too blind to see it.

Oh well,I just have fun with it.

US needs to get rid of their involvement in the Middle East. Everyone wonders why those people hate us, maybe if we get the **** out of there, tension would be lost between us and them. They shouldn't go into Iran, unless if there is an ICBM, missile silo, or anything else that can get a nuclear missile to the US, or any other countries.

And Russia has been supporting many of the Middle Eastern countries for a while anyway.

no because nothing will be peaceful until there is a Palestinian state and more land for them (or another auschwitz but thats unlikely)

Iran has been close with Russia for quite a while. They are also friends with China so if the U.S. attacks Iran they will be in a very tight spot. Especially because oil from the top 5 oil producing countries in the world would be cut off when/if Iran closes off the Strait of Hormuz. The 6th (Venezuela) hates Americas guts, and the 7th is Russia.

While Iran is being portrayed as the bad guy here, an interesting thing to do is to look at it from Iran's perspective. They feel threatened by American imperialism, and how isn't that fair? You invade neighbouring Iraq and of course they're going to feel threatened. If Russia invaded Mexico for some reason I'm pretty sure that the US wouldn't be too happy.
