Bill Gertz and Rowan Scarborough of The Washington Times reported that U.S. intelligence had recently uncovered evidence of closer-than-expected ties between Russian and Iraqi spy agencies. This puts the U.S. in another bind as the world and the United Nations press them for information in regards to proving that Iraq is in breech of resolution with evidence of possession or intended production of weapons of mass destruction. Although these intelligence ties may be remnants of the Cold War, Russia has continued to be one of Iraq’s closest allies, and has remained largely opposed to any war in Iraq.
Unfortunately for Iraq, they are in debt to Russia somewhere between 7 and 12 billion dollars, which has largely remained unpaid due to the previous Gulf War and to economic sanctions, pressed for by the United States, and imposed by the United Nations.
