Outcasts Of The World Unite.

Does anyone else find it vaguely amusing when assorted international pariah's get together to offer each other support and understanding:
The leaders of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation on Tuesday congratulated Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on his election win, Kremlin spokeswoman Natalya Timakova said.

The SCO groups Russia, China and the ex-Soviet Central Asian republics of Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan. Iran has observer status at SCO.
International politics is like a school playground, if no one lets you hang out with them then you can form your own gang of outcasts and pretend to like each other. They can't really form a coherent bloc based purely on not being liked very much though.
