Another Obama Mistake: Trusting Russia

Look, don't get me wrong. I have some Russian friends. One of my favorite hockey players is Russian. However, you cannot trust the nation of Russia, especially under Vlad Putin. This guy is a throwback to the days of the Cold War. He is just as paranoid as Stalin and twice as cunning. He is KGB for goodness sake! Here is what Russia has to say about sanctions against Iran and nuclear policy:
Russia's Foreign Ministry said on Thursday that new U.N. sanctions against Tehran over its nuclear programme do not oblige Moscow to scrap a controversial deal to deliver surface-to-air missiles to Iran.

Ministry spokesman Andrei Nesterenko spoke after the Interfax news agency cited a Russian arms industry source as saying Russia would freeze its unfulfilled contract to sell S-300 missiles to Iran because of the sactions.

But it's OK Barry. Tell Russia we are scrapping our nukes. Tell them how many we have. They are our friends, right? Yeah, and these are not the droids you are lookin for.....geez.
