Ahmadinejad's and the Ayatollah's past remarks constitute direct responses to Israel's campaign to push around her Muslim neighbors. Israel's desire to get the rest of the world powers to fight Iran's imagined nuclear threat against Israel is a neurotic obsession. If there were a nuclear war, do Israelis really think that Russia would just stand there looking stupid? Russia is a close neighbor of Iran! Any major war with Iran would threaten Russia as well! The only person who shows any common sense in this controversy is Putin. His vero against sanctions is a move toward peace, or at least a move away from another war. The warmongers of the West - and especially those in Israel and Washington - should pay close attention to what Putin says! Or do they really believe that Putin is a moron?
