    Russia is like Iran except with Nukes and too much damned territory.

    Don`t forget those wooden dolls that hide more wooden dolls that hide more wooden dolls.

    And big ol` commie buildings.

    But other than that, basically spot on.

    I don`t think there are many that would be too intimidated by Russia. I know they got nukes, but unless Putin`s lost his meds, I don`t see them being deployed/sold/touched anytime soon.

    I don`t think either the Russia of today or the USSR of the past are comparable to Iran. Both Russia and USSR represent far greater threats generally, but both are far more integrated into the structure of international politics than Iran is.

    To put it another way, the USSR never threatened to destroy another state completely (the very idea of the state, not just overthrow its government - very different) because of the will of Allah. You could argue that Marxism was just as teleological as Islam, but the leaders of the Soviet Union pretty much acted as just any other great power would. Trotsky may have threatened to close down international diplomacy, but that promise quickly became untenable.

    Not to say I think Iran is horribly evil or anything. I just think they represent a very different kind of threat than Russia does. Russia is another power playing power politics. Iran is more of a revolutionist state.

    I think the comparison is apples to oranges. That's not to say I don't think Iran doesn't pose a threat, but that the nature of the threat is completely different.

    I will say though that there are still too many politicians like Putin who seem to crave for the USSR of old and have this misguided notion that all these eastern block satellite countries still belong to them.

    I do not think we have anything to worry about with the nukes. I mean the only reason Putin might do something with them is if we put missiles on russia`s borders. But since we are not placing missiles anywhere near Russia then all is good.

    I duno Biv. I think were just all looking at it to hard.
    Something was going on, and Russia stepped in.

    Everyone knows that America cannot keep their shit in their own country, so if you go overboard, whamo, we come to save the day, even if we don't like the country. So even then Russia wouldn't have done it without cause.
    Nukes or not, we could squash them like flies.


    Iran is a religious extremist country to me.
    and Russia is more of a Political extremist country to me.
