    Russia will oppose Iran sanctions

    MSNBC has this article:

    Lavrov, who had met with U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan just moments before, also ruled out military action against Iran, saying Russia was “convinced that there is no military solution to this crisis.”

    Lavrov’s comments hours after Iran threatened the United States with “harm and pain” for its role in hauling Tehran before the Security Council.

    “The United States may have the power to cause harm and pain but it is also susceptible to harm and pain. So if the United States wishes to choose that path, let the ball roll,” it said in a statement obtained by Reuters on the sidelines of a U.N. nuclear watchdog board meeting in Vienna.

    Russia seem increasingly to be the voice of reason and common sense, the negotiators in such matters.

    Could this be the first signs of the US gradually losing influence, having less importance and clout than Russia and China?

    It could certainly be said that both Russia and China have enormous importance now on the international stage Colcam
