The News Snipet has always maintained that the fall of the Soviet Union meant nothing. Of course we naive Americans think that everyone loves us... BREITBART.COM - Russian rocket deliveries to Iran started: "Russia has begun deliveries of the Tor-M1 air defence rocket system to Iran, Russian news agencies quoted military industry sources as saying, in the latest sign of a Russian-US rift over Iran." Russia sends air defense system to Iran | Jerusalem Post: "Russia has begun delivery of Tor-M1 air defense missile systems to Iran, a Defense Ministry official said Friday, confirming that Moscow would proceed with arms deals with Tehran in spite of Western criticism." Russian nuclear chief to visit Tehran - Yahoo! News: "MOSCOW (AFP) - The head of Russia's nuclear agency Rosatom will visit Iran on December 11 to discuss economic cooperation between the two countries."

    I've aways thought that the fall of the Soviet Union was not accidental at all, they realised they could not defeat the US head to head and changed their strategy to the exact one that the US used to destroy the Soviet encouraging the US to strategically overextend itself. By accident or design the post Soviet Union world is looking better for Russia every day, and they would be fools not to take advantage of it. Sigh. JMO ---Doug

    Hi Doug!

    Interesting theory, and you could be absolutely right. I tend to believe that they failed economically--but philosophically they remain the same--mainly because people like Vladimir Zhirinovsky maintain a large and rather popular platform.

    I see the future's major players as a unified Europe, China and Russia fighting over world empire status. Thats the word today from...Jackstradamas...

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".

Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.

Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.

In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
