    Admit it, Kathy, you know little about Putin, the Russian dilemma, or Chechnya. Your post is only designed to increase your post count and possibly your rep count. I wouldn'd be surprised at either.

    Putin, and even many common Americans have been aware of Iranian intervention into Chechnyan politics for years. It's been widely reported and openly discussed in many venues. Maybe you just didn't get the memo.

    The originators of the article you link also hope for such mindless and uninformed respect.

    We have to be carefull here as we dont know these western intelligence informations. And we should not underestimate Russian intelligence. I think Russians know very good who is financing, equipping chechen terrorists.
    Even if Iran should assist those anti-russian terrorists, which would be a dumb move, Russia would not cancel its support for IRAN. Here it has to do with geo-strategy. And iran is important for Russia and china to balance and stop american influence in the oil-rich Mid-East.

    When you look into the trade figures of Russia-Iran Relations. The amount of trade between two is not big. Even Turkey does more trade with Russia than Iran does with Russia. So It is not an economic-based backing by Russia for Iran, but geostrategy. Not only because Iran with 1,6 mio km2 is the biggest country in Mid-East.

    On this situation even some financed anti-Russian terrorists by Iran will not changfe anything. Russians will only stop support for Iran by big concessions and $ made by USA to Russia. And not some western intelligence reports will make Russia stop Iran backing.
