1. Vladimir Putin the Puppeteer provacatively proclaimed yesterday that he would not support sanctions against Iran's inclinations to nuke-ify.
2. "There is no need to frighten the Iranians," he told reporters in Beijing, "we need to look for a compromise."
3. Meet in the middle with Ahmedinejad?
4. Most amusing.
5. Putin's position pertaining to Persia puts him at overt odds with Sarkozy, Gordon Brown and Ms Merkel, as if the String Puller pays any attention.
6. But the perfidious Prime Minister is squarely in accord with China, which announced on Friday, September 25, the day after Obama's poetic tour de force as Chairman-For-A-Day of the UN's Security Council, that Beijing does not believe in punitives versus the villains in Tehran, some of China's chummiest customers.
7. "You talk about punishment, and personally I don't like the word 'punishment,'" offered He Yafei, Hu's Foreign Minister, in New York.

8. It looks like Obama's one-sided withdrawal of missile defense from Eastern Europe did nothing to prompt the Puppet Master to play "Cooperation," prospectively.
9. At least, not with us.
10. Maybe Obama should've given Vladimir his Nobel.
11. Mrs Clinton was in Moscow Monday, the PM wouldn't even meet with her.
12. Hillary said she'd hoped to hobnob with the hard hearted head honcho, but unfortunately he was not at home.
13. Parleying with people he respects, apparently.
14. Like He Yafei.
15. So Hillary, like her obtuse boss, returns from Moscow empty mitted.
16. Indeed, at the selfsame moment Mrs Clinton was accomplishing jack and squat with Putin's marionette-like no-nukes negotiators, Izvestia revealed Russia's readiness to employ preemptive WMD's, "not only in a large scale but also in a regional or even a local war."
17. Now, that's not very nice.
18. Georgia cringes.
19. And after all we've done for him.
20. That Giapetto simply recognizes no gratitude.
21. So, what's Numbnut's next move?
22. He allows Russian regulators to inspect unimpeded OUR missile silos.
23. As if we're Qom.
24. "We want to ensure that every question the Russian military or Russian government asks is answered," swore our simple minded Secretary of State.

25. Just what do we garnish in interchange for our giveaways gratis, Mrs Clinton?
26. Then, today we observe that Obama has shifted from the White House to Commerce oversight of technology transfers, haply helping Hu's hi-tech headway.
27. Obama's order overturns obstacles put in place in the late 90's, after Loral and Hughes hijacked the "crown Jewels" of our nuclear defense to China, fined $20 million and $32 million respectively by Foggy Bottom after it was determined that expertise exported was employed by the Red Army to improve its long-range missile capacity.

28. Putin, Peking and Persia pick our purblind president's pockets of all but that preposterous Peace Prize.
Russia's Putin warns against intimidating Iran | World | ReutersRussian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin warned major powers on Wednesday against intimidating Iran and said talk of sanctions against the Islamic Republic over its nuclear programme was "premature".
Putin, who many diplomats, analysts, and Russian citizens believe is still Russia's paramount leader despite stepping down as president last year, was speaking after U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton visited Moscow for two days of talks.
"There is no need to frighten the Iranians," Putin told reporters in Beijing after a meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation.
"We need to look for a compromise. If a compromise is not found, and the discussions end in a fiasco, then we will see."
"And if now, before making any steps (towards holding talks) we start announcing some sanctions, then we won't be creating favourable conditions for them (talks) to end positively. This is why it is premature to talk about this now."
Clinton failed to secure any specific assurances from Russia on Iran during her visit, leaving her open to criticism at home that she had not received anything from Moscow after earlier U.S. concessions on missile defence.
