At the end of September – early October, Russia and Iran will carry out joint military drills in the Caspian Sea to train maritime security-enforcement operations. Iranian military attaché to Moscow Col. Suleiman Adeli said: “Iran and Russia want Caspian states to maintain maritime security without interference of foreign states. They consider presence of foreigners a source of tensions and conflict.”
When they mention “foreign interference”, they usually keep the US in mind. Although, it is not only the US that has political, military-strategic and economic interests in the region.

The policy that has hastened the political rise of Islamic radicalism and the attacks on diplomatic missions in Egypt and Libya in the wake of the so-called “Arab Spring” was hatched in the “ivory tower” of the Obama administration, charged talk-radio host Michael Savage today.
“We’ve gone from the ivory tower to the loss of power, literally in one administration,” he told his “Savage Nation” audience.
Savage pointed to three women in the Obama administration who helped advance the policy that ousted Libyan dictator Muammar Gadhafi and created the political vacuum in which radical jihadists attacked the U.S. Consulate today and killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and four others.

Savage noted he predicted in his book “Trickle Down Tyranny” that the Obama policy would help bring the Islamic radicals to power
The decision to go to war against Gadhafi, Savage wrote in his book, “reveals just how flimsy Obama’s foreign policy was in the testosterone-free zone known as the Obama White House.”
Savage recalled Hillary Clinton’s boast in an interview with CBS News after Gadhafi was killed last October.
“We came, we saw, he died,” she said, laughing.
