While the World Body Demonizes US Russia and China Continue to Get a Pass

AFP is reporting that Russia is delivering rockets to Iran. According to the report:
"Deliveries of the Tor-M1 have begun. The first systems have already been delivered to Tehran," ITAR-TASS quoted an unnamed, high-ranking source as saying Friday.
Russia defends the sale:
Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov said the contract for 29 rocket systems, signed in December last year, was legitimate because the Tor-M1 has a purely defensive role.
The defensive role of the missles does not alleviate Russia from its irresponsible behavior. Here we have an unstable country lead by an unstable dictator and Islamic radicals rushing to build atomic weapons and making threats; and Russia feels it is a sound foreign policy to strengthen Iran by selling weapons to it. It is not only foolish, it seriously calls into question the sanity of Vladimir Putin. During difficult negotiations it is insane to strengthen the hand of the one you are negotiating with. Of course the rest of the world will once again yawn and give Russia a pass, then turn its attentions to how they can find another reason to criticize the US.

    I don't for a minute believe Russia is negotiating with Iran in an adversarial manner. Their adversary is the US. Stabilizing and strengthening Iran weakens the US and its power in the world. A weakened US makes room for Russia to have more of the global reach the Soviet Union once enjoyed.
