    Don’t forget the unicorns. And the oceans no longer rising. The planet healing, etc.

    Kerry’s diplomacy is as artificial as his face.

    He’s a pretentious gasbag, and Putin and the rest have this gigolo’s number.

      To say it once more: John Kerry, patrician airhead.

    USA have no interest in Surya . We might have some in Ukraine but the burden is to big.

    Mead seems to think Obama is waking up to reality, I disagree, I see no evidence that Obama recognizes that Russia sees the US as an enemy, or that Iran, China and many others see the US as their enemy as well. All I see is an unrealistic belief that Diplomacy can solve everything.

    “When it comes to Iran, Russia’s goal is not to help the United States
    keep Iran from becoming a nuclear power or to stabilize the Middle East.

    I don’t see how this can be true. Firstly, let’s remember that Iran is a close neighbor to Russia — it’s just 1,500 miles from Tehran to Moscow. Iran’s acquiring the ability to deliver nuclear warheads is a far graver danger to Russia than to the U.S.

    Secondly, Russia has a serious Islamist problem within its borders (Chechnya) and in its “sphere of influence.” Iran is the premier state sponsor of Islamist terrorism. In this sense, stabilizing the Middle East wouldn’t be all bad for Russia.

    “‘Russia needs to be a part of the solution,’ Mr. Kerry told reporters.”

    “Or else…?” Mr. Putin smirked.

    The identity of the “winner” is hardly surprising. Believing that astrology is a science is no more of a cognitive stretch than describing oneself as a “Conservative Democrat.”
