Russian Defense Ministry sources say that Israel does not have military assets to defeat Iran and further believe that US military action will be necessary.
On December 16, 2011 – Former British Foreign Secretary David Owen, wrote in daily Mirror that US military defeat in Iraq has made Iran the most powerful country in the region.
Russian deputy Russian prime minister Dmitry Rogozin who was former Russian ambassador to NATO – has warned both the US and Israel to keep their dirty hands off Iran and Syria.
To back-up the warning, Russia is in the process of moving its forces along Iranian borders to protect its regional interests in case America decided to jump into war against Iran to save its Zionist masters from a worse military humiliation than the Jewish army received at the hands of Hizbullah fighters in Summer 2006.
“Iran is our neighbor. If Iran is involved in any military action, it’s a direct threat to our security,” says Dmitry Rogozin.
Informed sources say that the Russians have warned of “unpredictable consequences” in the event Iran is attacked, with some Russians saying that the Russian military will take part in the possible war because it would threaten its vital interests in the region.
The influential Russian Nezavisimaya Gazeta newspaper has quoted a Russian military source as saying that the situation forming around Syria and Iran “causes Russia to expedite the course of improvement of its military groups in the South Caucasus, the Caspian, Mediterranean and Black Sea regions.”
Russian sources say that the Russian military believes that if the U.S. goes to war with Iran, it may deploy forces into Georgia and warships in the Caspian Sea with the possible help of Azerbaijan, which since has stated that it will not allow its territory to be used by Israel to launch an attack on neighboring Iran
There had been speculation that given the improved relations between Israel and Azerbaijan, the Zionist entity may use bases from which to launch air attacks on neighboring Iran’s nuclear sites. Israel recently agreed to sell Azerbaijan $1.6 billion in military equipment.
