LISTEN UP, YOU FUCKED-UP PEOPLE OF THIS FUCKED-UP WORLD ...
For a moment, use some common sense.
Iran applies to CSTO, the Russian-backed version of NATO, to become a member so that, if it is ever attacked, Russia will be forced by the treaty to defend it.
IS THE UNITED STATES GOING TO ALLOW IRAN TO JOIN CSTO?
This is EXACTLY what is happening in Ukraine.
Ukraine wants to be part of NATO and the European union ... at least a few Ukrainians do, including their PRIDEFUL politicians who want to become mega-millionaires off of Capitalistic policies ... most Ukrainians would rather simply live in peace under Russia law, IF it means peace and security ...
But anyways ...
When Ukraine's corrupt politicians, who the deceived NATO countries call heroes, applied to join NATO ...
Russia said ...
Now we sit back and wait for Iran, North Korea, Syria, India, and China to join CSTO.
What will the world look like then?
Baby Jesus, come down from your cradle in the sky and save us all!
