On Saturday, Ali Larijani, the speaker of the Majlis (Iranian parliament), said that Iran and Russia have common views on a large number of international issues and closer bilateral ties between them will facilitate regional and international peace and stability, saying, “Our two countries share many interests and common views in international fields that can serve as a basis for constructive cooperation between Tehran and Moscow”. Press TV cited Larijani in reporting his meeting with Konstantin Shuvalov, President Putin‘s personal delegate at the 16th Summit of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) in Tehran. Larijani said that the Majlis would do its best to promote Iran’s “amicable ties” with Russia. Shuvalov said that Tehran plays an effective and constructive role in regional and global developments.

You can discount all the vacuous flapdoodle in the Western media about Russia moving away from Iran. Firstly, a while back, we had a friendly confab between Salehi and the Old Master, Sergei Lavrov, and, now, we have this. In the main, Western journalists are nihilist whores who write whatever their corporate paymasters tell them to… if they don’t, they’re out of a job. Someone called them “pressitutes”… an apt title, if there ever were such… oh, yes… our friendly neighbourhood lickspittle stooges Serge Schmemann and Sophia Kishkovsky are “pressitutes” for the NYT… fancy that.
Discount all American (whether interventionist Democrat or neocon Republican) wind on Iran… with Russian and Chinese guarantees, there’s going to be NO attack on Iran. In particular, Wafflin’ Willy is a prancing lobotomised fool… he knows that the USA lacks the means, both military and financial, to shut down the Iranian nuclear programme (especially, since Kadima‘s defection knackered Bibi‘s “government of national unity” in Israel). The USA is NOT going to attack Iran before, during, or after the US presidential election… as I said, it lacks the means. Anyone who believes that it shall is in sore need of a long rest in a home for the feebleminded.
Crazy world we live in, no? Pass me the jug…
