“Iran is the target, not Russia”

Investigative journalist and RT contributor Wayne Madsen believes Washington’s shelving of its proposed anti-missile shield in Eastern Europe was part of a quid pro quo with Russia.

“When President Obama came into office, we heard the term ‘resetting’ US-Russia relations, so I think this is a major reset,” said Madsen.

“This comes right after Russia allowed the US to use Russian air space to re-supply Afghanistan, so this was a quid pro quo,” he added. “We’re also looking at direct negotiations with Iran; it’s Iran who’s really the target here, not Russia.”
