Russia warns of "unpredictable consequences"

#1
so it's a soundbite, but by some accounts the Russian bear is in the process of deploying his army on the Russia/Iran border in preparation for obviously soon-to-arrive attack.

more soundbites: "Iran is our neighbor," Rogozin said. "If Iran is involved in any military action, it's a direct threat to our security." Rogozin now is the deputy Russian prime minister and is regarded as anti-Western. He oversees Russia's defense sector.

about time as well!

Reading the thread about Iran now stockpiling up their grub supply's and now Russians massing along the Iranian border could very well indicate that something is about to kick off, that said, I really cant see Israel doing a one man lightning blitzkrieg act and then simply expecting to get away with it Scott free without any repercussions.

Israel can not make any pre emptive strike without the blessing of it's allies for fear of global isolation.

Are we sure that it's not Russia that's going to do a quick land gab, and bank all the resources?

I mean, stranger things have happened, and quite frankly if they want Iran they can have it. Some good old fashioned USSR era diplomacy is needed here. Ah well, back to the real world....

If someone is thinking of attacking Iran, I hope we keep out of it. Come on Government give the poor Armed Forces a break, at least until the buggerence of the Olympics is over.

Don't pay attention to these empty statements. Corrupted Putin's regime has a lot of problems inside Russia. Recently moron Putin was 'elected' as a president but his power now is not so ablolute. In many places his rivals manage to win on local electios. For examly Putin's man was badly defeated on Yaroslavl (a big city not far from Moscow) mayor's elections. In Moscow Putins's United Russia party didn't take part in municipal elections (due to unpolularity) and members of Putin's gang took part in the elections as 'independent' candidates. Oleg Shein (a candidate on Astrakhan mayor election) in now on a hunger strike because of unspeakable violations of the law and after a formal and senseless comments of mr.Putin in the Parliament about this situation the fraction of Just Russia party left the Parliament.

Now Putin is rather seeking a support from the West (especially from Washington) and Iran is not so important for Kremlin. Anyway Putin will avoid any risky adventures because it could cause serious domestic problems.

As for mr.Rogozin then simply ignore this opportunist. His words don't cost a half penny.

Israel has proven time and time again that it really doesn't give a damn about outside opinion, and they know that the US would never dare go against it because neither the GOP or the Dems would risk alienating the rich Jewish voter block.

Maybe Russia will use the distraction of an Iran/US/Israel conflict to do its own land-grad in the Caucusus or cenral Aisa? Kinda like 1956 when they used Suez to justify invading Hungary?

Then again, as Sergey says, words are cheap. Any actual evidence for this supposed 'massing of forces'?
 
#12
If Russia REALLY wanted to help, they would just give iran the nukes, gratis. Might shut the ****ing izzies up. MAD has it's merits.
 
#13
If Israel is going to do a pre-emptive strike I think it could be this year.
If they leave it much later then Iran may have already developed their nukes. Have they already got the delivery systems?
If nothing is done then it could spark a arms race in the sandpit which is quite worrying too.

Hope it doesn't all kick off cause it'll be ****ing ugly.

Shouldn't we begin profiteering and sell Iran 100 CR2's? We all know T72/T80's are shit then when Russia starts struggling sell them the remainder of the CR2's?

Dear OP - where is this Russia/Iran border you mention and why is it "about time as well" that Russia stormed across two or three sovereign nations in order to engage NATO? You seem geopolitically confused.

it's about time because there hasn't been any conflict in the middle-east for ages

the border to which the post refers to is that of Armenia, but in the linked article this is the first paragraph: "The Russian military anticipates that an attack will occur on Iran by the summer and has developed an action plan to move Russian troops through neighboring Georgia to stage in Armenia, which borders on the Islamic republic, according to informed Russian sources."

make of it what you will

You can be sure the Russians would be furious if Iran got the bomb but they'll do there damnedest to deter an Israeli attack and since Georgia the Russians are unpredictable enough to worry Bibi. Iran is after all an old Russian Imperial stomping ground and they don't like other powers ****ing with it. They are also quite happy with the US being distracted by Qom from the larger game.

Nostradamus also predicted that the Russian armed forces would be too pissed on aviation fuel to care.
