Russian Plans to build another Nuclear Reactor in Iran

Timothy Birdnow

The Russians are planning to build another nuclear reactor for the Iranians. According to Pravda:

"Russia will continue cooperation with Iran in the nuclear field. Sergei Ryabkov, Deputy Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation, said that Russia may participate in the construction of another nuclear power plant in the country."

End excerpt.

Why build another plant? A military strike would be terribly difficult if the Iranians have another reactor, and the Russians know this. They are doing this to blackmail Europe and America. They know they must do something soon or their energy hegemony will evaporate, with huge reserves of natural gas being found in Poland and England, and threatening to aid Iran to further their atomic ambitions may force agreements with Europe to choke the development of those gas fields in utero.

This is power diplomacy at the point of a bayonette - a nuclear tipped bayonette.

And what will happen should the Israelis strike the Iranian nuclear facilities? Will Russia respond with military action?

The danger is reaching the emergency level. And yet our fearless leader continues to play golf and enjoy himself. We MUST get a new president next year; time is running out.
