The reasons I stated above is why I believe Israel and the West want to knock Iran out of the picture not because this nuclear issue but because Iran is fast rising and due to replace the American-Israel duo as the Main power broker of that region.

As far as Iran's successes in nuclear technology, they are not Iran's successes. They are Russian ones.

Quote:
"There are 3,000 Russian specialists working there [Bushehr], and we hope that it [reactor] will start operating in mid-September," Ali Akbar Salehi said, adding that Iran will need an additional $1.5 billion to finish the plant.

Also, You talk about USA and Israel as main players in that region. You forget two more: Saudi Arabia, now being armed up to the teeth by the US, and Turkey, a NATO member (soon to be EU member as well, probably).

besides this nuclear reactor where these 3,000 Russians are working and such what other things has Russia helped with Iran? Not with their medicine, nanotech, space, etc so you going to tell me its because of Russia that Iran is 11 times above the world average in development? Baloney....Turkey is friendly with Iran now and has recently removed Iran as one of the nations that is a threat to Turkish security, Saudi Arabia is a basket case they can't even fly or maintain none of that hardware they can't even come close to matching Iranian ingenuity and technical prowess they need foreign companies to maintain everything from their aircraft to tanks to vehicles to helicopters to their ships to their issued rifles Saudi Arabia is not a power by a long shot but a basket case that is propped up, so that leaves Israel and America and Israel can't match Iran in funds, development, population, Iran's university students alone number 1/3 of Israel's population.

I agree. Relax, I am not against Iran.

I actually know why this happened.

I believe this is related to the Russian military spending spree in Europe.

Fact is that France can't sell the Mistrel class ships to Russia at the same time Russia sells S-300 missiles to Iran.

Russia had to choose whether to sell weapons to Iran OR be able to buy European and Israeli weapon systems.

Suffice it to say that Russia may have political issues buying European weaponry, but by the same token, western European countries have political issues selling weapons to Iran-supporters.

Know what I think? If Putin is the way I think he is, as soon as we get the Mistrals from the French, and the drones from Israel, we'd pull right back. Seriously, I gurrantee you that either Putin will withdraw the ban after he becomes President in 2012, or will force Medvedev to do it even before that

As an educated American I can see through all the propaganda, lies, smoke screens the Western media creates about Iran and just look at the cold hard facts and statistics myself and I must say that for an Iran that is portrayed as the way it is in the western media little do people know about the resilience, independent mindedness and resourcefulness of the Iranian nation... For an Iran that has been under sanctions for 30 years they are so far ahead in development cuz they know they can't rely on anyone else but themselves... The Saudis who have money out the ass and who have way more access to western technology can't still manage to get anywhere with self sufficiency... Saudis are just spoiled kids with fancy toys who still need good old daddy to fix or replace those shiny toys when they break down Lol

Who cares whom they side? Russia has just lost rich and loyal client. The deals that were banned are worth billions of dollars. Are European courts going to buy Russian air-defence systems and submarines?

Prapor, tell that to our presidents please...

They are easy to find... They are usually bending over next to some Saudi's bed...

And I think that war is close, they will soon be bombing Iran.
