Russia: Attack on Tehran is Attack on Moscow

Russia has given Iran its bear hug and warns Israel and the West that an attack on Tehran would be considered an attack on Moscow. The threat heightens the prospect of World War III in the event of a military strike on Iran.

“Iran is our neighbor,” Russia’s outgoing ambassador to NATO, Dmitry Rogozin, told reporters in Brussels. “And if Iran is involved in any military action, it’s a direct threat to our security.”

Kremlin Security Council head Nikolai Patrushev accused Israel of provoking the United States towards war against Iran, the Russian Interfax news agency reported Friday. “But at the same time, we believe that any country has the right to have what it needs to feel comfortable, including Iran,” he added.

Rogozin warned on Friday that more attacks on Iran could cause “a scorching Arab Summer.”

Russia also has come to the defense of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, warning Western nations not to intervene in Syria with military forces. Russia is a major arms supplier to Syria and has a heavy investment in Iran’s nuclear facilities.

Japan also is drifting towards Iran, backtracking from its promise last week to back American sanctions aimed at persuading Iran to halt its unsupervised nuclear development.

Last week’s assassination of an Iranian nuclear scientist has aroused more “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” protest rallies in Iran, where the scientist was buried on Friday.

Iranian state radio said the 32-year-old scientist was involved with enriched uranium, a key ingredient for a nuclear weapon.

  1. this has been irans ace in the pit for over 30 years now. wow what a world . i wonder if russia was facing a threat from one who was willing to use it if they would be defending a terrorist nation. i guess we will find out , there are countries with nukes that should not be veiwed as too peaceful to use them. mr obama may be involved in re-election and putin coming to power in march may be faced with countries who will face iran on any and all levels which have nukes.

  2. Well I also believe that if the united states do attack Iran Russia China and north Korea will fully back Iran with as many troops possible I mean soon or later when “shit hits the fan” the united states military will have their troops stretched to far as in a “thin red line” and will have yo replaice all of our troops which of you think of it will takes weeks maybe take months and with that small window all of the “enemy” county’s will most likely attack any and most likely all of the baces of the U.S. and our allies naves around the world and in fact cause a global war which will be fought in our own back yards
