Russia and Iran are already buddies, but as confrontation between the United States and Iran escalates, the country is finding itself further pushed into an alliance with China and Russia.

 

Just sayin' 😉

That is very interesting.

Since intervening in the Syrian civil war on behalf of President Bashar al-Assad in 2015, Russia has generally turned a blind eye to Israeli attacks on suspected arms transfers and deployments by Assad’s Iranian and Lebanese Hezbollah allies.

Russia is a passive buddy.

Russia looks after herself first, and will not jeopardize "motherland" for the sake of " a buddy"  (Just my imperfect view)

It will be interesting to see how this is fulfilled as religious nations seem to align themselves with the RF

 

*** it-2 p. 1199 Woman ***
“The desire of women.” Of “the king of the north,” Daniel’s prophecy says: “To the God of his fathers he will give no consideration; and to the desire of women and to every other god he will give no consideration, but over everyone he will magnify himself. But to the god of fortresses, in his position he will give glory.” (Da 11:37, 38) “Women” here may represent the weaker nations who become ‘handmaids’ of “the king of the north,” as weaker vessels. They have their gods that they desire and worship, but the “king of the north” disregards them and pays homage to a god of militarism.

If only the United States pulls out, I wonder how much this will really hamper Iran.  They can still get aid and support from the other countries.

 

Interesting the KotS is divided on this.  US pulls out, UK stays in.

 

For now.

 

This will be the real questions right?

 

So much banking is controlled by the US. If the "sanctions" include sanctioning any company that does business in Iran - well, with all the multinational businesses - that would create quite the freeze in any investment in Iran - except for those business that don't bank on the world market, but rather in the "other" markets. China and Russia have been trying to get that “other” market moving, but it really hasn't taken off at all - not enough money there.

 

We’ll have to see what those sanctions are and how far ranging they are.

 

EDIT: YEAH! Peace AND SECURITY!!  :popcorn:
