On December 16, 2011 the Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh met with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in Moscow (1). During that meeting they said that they backed Iran in their right to develop nuclear energy sources for peaceful purposes.
They also expressed their concern about the unilateral sanctions against Iran by the United Countries of War: the United Kingdom and the United States. They called these sanctions counter-productive and called for peaceful ways to solve this issue through negotiations. I have become to like the role of India in these matters. They are no longer afraid to speak out against the Drone Empire of America. They are part of the BRICS-countries who form an economic bloc against the old imperialistic countries from the West. I also remember the peaceful role India has played in the Libya conflict. Not only did the Indian Parliament speak out against the intervention in Libya (2), but something else was not often brought forward in the western mass media, namely that India has supported the attempts by the African Union to try and work out a peaceful way to solve the crisis in Libya (3). The NATO-War Countries however didn't want any peace-talks: they wanted to get rid of Gaddafi and therefore they completely ignored the peace-attempts by Africa and India, symbolically bombing Tripoli only a few hours after president Zuma of the African Union had left Tripoli.
It seems that the NATO-countries that are suffering from economic gangrene are facing billions of people who oppose their their (economic) acts of war against Iran as both Russia, China and India back the country of Iran and its right to develop nuclear energy for peaceful purposes.
If you haven't seen Putin's comments on NATO's role in Libya take a look at (4).
