The Middle East Isolation Series - Iran

Iran - Is Iran really all alone? Does the US really think Iran will get a meaningful sanction in the United Nations? All this time China and Russia has been tied and very sympathetic to this regime. China likes Iraq for economic reasons while Russia loves it more for strategic purposes. With two heavyweights in the foreign policy arena at your side in this very crucial time in your history, Iran's position in the chess board is quite good. Iran also has pawns in Hamas and Hezbollah and other Jihadist organizations so it is not only in defense but in offense as well. Iran is not resting on its laurels though, it even has a new ally in Brazil.

Right now, Iran is just enjoying the sights as the United States continue to bash Israel. Imagine the Great and Little Satans fight each other! What a show indeed for Ahmadinejad.
