Military action against Iran would be a "very serious mistake fraught with unpredictable consequences", Russia's foreign minister has warned.
Sergei Lavrov said diplomacy, not missile strikes, was the only way to solve the Iranian nuclear problem.
His comments come after Israeli President Shimon Peres said an attack on Iran was becoming more likely.
The UN's atomic watchdog is expected to say this week that Iran is secretly developing a nuclear arms capability.

already expected the response from the russians..
they will if need be step in to assist.. and contrary to what some may think the russian military is quite capable.
curious to see the u.s and israeli response have a suspicion they will continue with the sabre rattling as they're too drunk with bloodlust..
now remains to be seen is the chinese response..which should be coming soon..

This is unacceptable. The American people do not want war. When the time comes congress needs to grow a backbone and say no. There is no bribe, payoff or perk worth a 3rd world war. I dont care how corrupt they are.

At the end of the day, if Russia or anybody else stands up for Iran, that means they are OK with Iran having Nukes!
After all, that's what they are developing and that is why we are told they must be stopped, by Military Force if necessary.
So these Countries that are helping / support Iran must also be OK with them supplying a lot of Terrorists with weapons too then. You know, Hamas in Gaza and Lebanon. That's where all these rockets are coming from, the one's that kill people in Israel.
So just what the hell are Russia and China thinking?
Or do they only care about the Sales of such weapons to Iran, money and greed?
