Russia snubbed its nose at the United States today by announcing plans to sell military equipment to both Iran and Venezuela.
The head of the state arms exporter said that Russia was negotiating to sell new anti-aircraft systems to Iran despite American objections.
"Contacts between our countries are continuing and we do not see any reason to suspend them," Anatoly Isaikin, general director of Rosoboronexport, told Ria-Novosti at an arms fair in South Africa.
Russia is simply doing to us what we have been doing to them: selling arms to various countries around the world, and reaping the financial rewards from such transactions. And right now, there is nothing the US can do, whatsoever, to stop this.
The more military horsepower Russia sells to Iran, and the sooner it gets delivered, the more difficult it will be for Israel to start a unilateral military attack against Iran and finish it successfully.
