With tensions between Moscow and Tehran surfacing, an Iranian diplomat said that Russia has been reaping the fruits of Iran’s sacrifices in the war-torn country, pro-Saudi Al Arabiya reported on Monday.

Javed Gorban Ogli, former director general of Middle Eastern Affairs at the Iranian Foreign Ministry, said that after four years of effort, Iran has finally been able, with Russian assistance, to secure Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad’s reign.

However, he cast doubt on Russia’s true intentions towards Assad and Iran, saying that Russian policy is motivated by self-interest and could quickly turn against its Iranian and Syrian allies.

    Waaaah! Oh you mean Russia’s interest in defending itself from a religion that if not allowed to run indiscriminately across your borders…..running rough shod through your country…..killing all the Jews and Christians while subordinating the infidels….if this is Russia’s self interest I would call it a noble one. It seems Obama is attempting to run rough shod over the entire world by surfing in on Gods 21 sealed judgements of revelation calling it “global warming”. He is herding the lobotomized sheep by creating a new enemy with climate change so as to take their eye off the ball. That would be A well funded Isis crossing their borders to create mayhem and Destruction. Islamic helter skelter that’s the name of the game and unfortunately Europe has already fallen. Their actions against Isis will be in form only but not true substance. It seems Turky is being used as a puppet to seed a nuclear holocaust. Islam is the only religion on this planet that considers massive casualtys as a success. To die is gain if it is done in the name of Allah and its purpose is to destroy the great Satan and the little Satan while forcing submission of the infidels.

  • The Iranians know the Russians are not a pushover and they do not get intimidated.

    if obama had smarts, he would play upon the unnatural alliance between the religious christian state(russia) and the moslem state…the ayatollahs can not love the russian infidels who have so much moslem blood on their hands…the U.S. has far more common interests with russia than with iran.

    Iran could be doing more in this fight and needs to do more. If the global ZioCon elements win in Syria, you are next. Better to confront them in Syria than in Tehran
