"€œGod willing, with the force of God behind it, we shall soon experience a world
without the United States and Zionism."€ -- Iran President Ahmadi-Nejad

Notice the differences in these two stories.
Russia Leery of Sanctions Against Iran
"Moscow – Wary of penalties against Iran because it has so much at stake, Russia is continuing to urge diplomatic efforts rather than sanctions as the U.N. Security Council’s August 31 deadline approaches..."
"China Uneasy About Sanctions Against Iran, Says They’ll Hurt West
With the U.N. Security Council’s deadline for Iran’s nuclear activities looming, China is warning the Western powers not to impose sanctions against Tehran..."

I don't have much good to say about either of these two nations. However, it would appear in this case, Russia is being honest; they feel sanctions against Iran would harm their own interest. With China, I take little comfort in the fact that they are "concerned" about sanctions on Iran, fearing that these sanctions would hurt the West.

Apparently, Russia could learn a little about propaganda from China.
