In case you’re curious what Iran has to say about the multi-billion dollar arms package going to US allies in the Gulf region, which is presumably with the intent to offset reports of new Iranian deals with Russia, here’s the Iranian News Agency today:
Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said on Tuesday that the US plan to sell billions of dollars worth of arms and prepare illusive scenarios in the region is an instance of adventurism and a disparate effort.
“Washington has taken such a move to save the US arms manufacturing companies from bankruptcy,” said Mottaki in reaction to recent claims by the US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
He said the White House rulers, some of whom being major shareholders of the large arms companies, want to use their influence at the end of their tenure in office and wage a
psychological war so as to garner growing benefits for owners of their arms companies.
