Russia to continue its support for Iran

Recently, Obama offered to abandon the ABM installation in Poland in exchange for Russian acquiescence to somewhat stronger sanctions against Iran.

The Russians came up with a better proposal. Their long-range aviation chief announced that Chavez had offered him a Venezuelan island with airstrips for Russian long-range bombers. Instead of giving in to Obama’s threat, the Russians implied a counter-threat: if the United States deploys ABMs in Poland, Russia will reciprocate with strategic nuclear bombers in Venezuela.

Confirming our expectations, the Russian general also spoke of basing strategic bombers in Cuba. The development recalls the Cuban missile crisis, when Russians deployed nuclear missiles there in response to American missiles in Turkey.
