The Last Dictator Visits Iran

I've Been Thinking:
Guess who recently visited Teheran to meet with Iran's Ahmadinejad?
The ostensible purpose in meeting was to boost trade for their mutual defense. Then they were strategized on how to unite against the United States. Ahmadinejad called Lukashenko "brave" for the way he confronted the U.S.
Lukashenko is a tyrant, a throw back to the previous century.
The union between Iran and Belarus is deeply troubling. This alliance provides the financially strapped Lukashenko with weapons and monies and access to weapons in order to confront the U.S. and the West from home, right smack in the heart of Europe.
This is a union that was expected.
