Feeling Distinctively Uncomfortable with Putin’s Visit to Iran

There seems very sinister about Putin, President of a newly resurgent Russia, visiting Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, President of a newly resurgent Iran, in what once was called Persia, about their current Nuclear Arms programme.

(Sasha Baron Cohen famously quipped that Borat was unavailable for comment on receiving a prestigious award as he was at the Holocaust Denial Conference in Tehran. Cohen went on to say that he had tried to call the President of Kazakhstan to tell him the news but that both
lines were engaged.)

It's not perhaps surprising that they should meet, only unsettling that they are. Somehow I feel that the visit will be more than ceremonial.
