The Russkies

The US becomes even more irrelevant. AP (10.18.07):
"Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert made a surprise trip to Moscow on Thursday to discuss Iran's nuclear program with Russian President Vladimir Putin, who just returned from talks with Iranian leaders in Tehran.

The two leaders also were expected to discuss a reported arms deal that Russia is to sign with Syria, and Russia's role in Israeli-Palestinian peacemaking efforts."

Olmert to Discuss Iran With Putin

"Olmert's visit, expected to last just a few hours, was announced only after Putin had returned from Iran, where he vowed Tuesday to support Iran's pursuit of nuclear energy and warned 'outside forces' — hinting at the United States — against using force against Tehran."

"After greeting Olmert at the Kremlin, Putin said, 'We know how concerned you are about the situation surrounding the Iranian (nuclear program). I am ready to share the results of my visit.'"
