It couldn't happen to a nicer guy.
For all his championing of Iran's interests, refusal to allow them to be referred to the UN Security Council, promise of a veto if they're brought up for sanctions, help building nuclear reactors and arms sales, Putin didn't win an exemption from the Islamic revolution's meddling. The Revolutionary Guard (IRG) is training teams of Chechen fighters in a terrorist camp near Tehran, in both tactics and Iranian-style revolutionary ideology.
Serves you right, Putin. Having shown the world that Russia cares for nothing like honor or the security of the world, only money, you're now getting an Iranian thumb jammed in your eye for your trouble. How's that Chechen quagmire coming along? Prick.
