Rodina Mat' Zovyot

Vlad's Russia is a supa playa. Crunk and disorderly, Rodina mat' zovyot is like the Great Satan's long time girl frienemy Fronting funk in semi functional democracy, Russian mid term elections are a victory for the lame duck Vlad and his President Putin 4 Life Peoples Populist Pocketbook Party.

At the recently renovated Naval HQ of Vladivostok, Russia's gateway to the Pacific navy base, Valentin Nenashev reports

"I voted for a better life, for stability. I voted for Putin"
Propelled by petro dollars - Putin's resurrection of Warsaw Pact time military capabilities is big biz - especially so for a nation covering 1/6 of the globe.

Iran's desperate attempt to upstage the Annapolis Awakening by announcing scary new 2K kilometer (1.2K miles for the uncivilized) range missiles effectively targets nearly every city in Mother Russia. And such weaponry deployed may arouse rather bearish reflexes. Iran's Weapon of the Week Double Feature reveal that Russian lasse fare with Iran may last only

"...until there is conclusive evidence showing that Iran has the capability to
launch long-range nuclear-armed missiles..."

This is significant. True best girlfrienemies often hook up on short threats. Like in WWII when American GI's and Red Army troops hooked up face to face in victory after ripping the guts out of Nazi time Germany and cutting her in half. Torgau 2007 is one of several military coalitions between Mother Russia and the Great Satan
"We need to pool our efforts together with our American counterparts to fight
existing common threats"
Common threats defined by veto powered members of the Iranian Enrichment Interruptus talks that fizzled in Paris? Iran's brand new nuclear negotiator, Saeed Jalili maintains the issue is closed.
"There is no longer an Iranian nuclear problem."
Sacre' blu!

"We can’t do business with these guys."

Russian Commonwealth General Yuri Baluyevsky pointed out this missile arch could reach St. Petersburg: And that Iran was running short on friends.
"I do not believe that the Russian military is obliged to defend the world from
the evil Americans."

"1.2K miles for the uncivilized"

Thank you...I have trouble when the temperature is in Canadian as well.

Years ago a friend of mine asked why I would feel the need to learn Russian, after all we're no longer enemies...

Personally I don't see too much to sweat about, but that "sacred blue" non-existent "Iranian nuclear problem;" oeuf! Right in the gut!

Hopefully Russia will come around completely before it has done too much commerce.

Good stuff sister

I heard some report this morning that said Iran had stopped their nuclear weapons program in 2003. What? I thought they didn't have a nuclear weapons program??? Need more research.

Another great article. As for Putin, I never trusted him. He will be the man behind the curtain pulling all the levers.

We'll see how long Russia's petro power holds. We'll see a few more subs at the bottom of the Barents before long, I'd bet.

Great posting, Courtney!

Well, fortunately we're not relying on their stinkin' military to protect us anyway. Losers.

I think Russia will continue on the road back in time until the people are competely fed up enough to take to the streets and change leaders.

Hi Blandly!
Iran may be leery of Russian deals after the most advanced air defense system in the world (sans American) proved to be worthless.

There were reports last year that Iran owed Russia a lot of jack - and were trying to negotiate extensions on credit.

Russian construction firms alledgedly bailed on several projects - mostly heavy engineering - like bunkers, super villan lairs and 'bombproof' command centers.

Iran may be stressed about Russian deals after the world's most advanced Air Defense Systems proved worthless.

Hi Debbie - I think you are the first to recog that! It's gonna be a wild ride with the NIE.

Donald! Excellent point - petro dollars only go so far.

Hi Karen! You are correct. Russia's dyscrunktional democracy can be cured by the people. Hey - these are the same cats who got rid of the Soviet Union!

YJM - Hi. Thank you! Cool site you have!
