It seems to me that Russians have some "UNCONTROLLABLE" Erotic desire to polish the shoes of the NATO and hand wash NATO's laundry. They are working very hard and focused towards the fulfillment of this desire.
In the mean time, Chinese are very happy being the 'slave labors' to the west while riding the bubbles in their own economy.
When self pride is lost then the soul is lost.............at that point country, religion, culture, family all does not matter a squat.
The elite within the US knows this. Its just that the US is being played this time around. They have no other alternative but to play the game of capitalism as it is being played.
The US have written obligations and agreements they cant just stop at own will. Capitalistic rules and agreements. You can probably face in the Federal reserve as the main game player. The US owns that bank a ton of promises.
Did anyone got nuked as a result of 911.........No! Because it was the work of the non-state operators.
Iran has lots of non state operators and if it is attacked we will see lots of nonsense actions.
For small nations fielding a 1980s Brezhnev era armies, the better tools are guerrilla warfare, insurgency and terrorism. Brezhnev era equipment can be blown up in two weeks as we have seen many times.
Ask the western policy makers what it would have meant to lose even several hundred civilians as a result of the terrorist actions in response to attacks by the "power drunk" psychopaths. When your own civilians are getting bombed then have no hesitation extending the courtesy to the civilians of the attackers.
All this talk about Nuclear War is a JOKE! This topic was about Russia supposedly defending Iran against a U.S. attack when we all know now for several days that both Russia and China have told Iran that they will NOT get involved with any U.S./Iranian War.

Maybe while the usa's military and "oil focused thought patterns" are tearing around the middle east some more,north korean,chinese and russian armies will invade the west coast of the united states and imo,if they did,they would be able to penetrate a couple hundred miles before the usa could even properly react.Walk around any usa mall on a saturday night and look around at the majority of people you'll see,a cross sections of americans who would be physically useless and mentally helpless trying to stand up to a "real invasion" of the usa...

So your end conclusion is only 'Surprise' will keep the psychopaths away from attacking other countries.
Your second option is 1000x more viable than the first. Russia coming out openly and saying attack on Iran would be considered an attack on Russia itself. This might work but not for long.
Individual countries need to develop force and tools to be able to tell the west that attack on them might not be a good idea after all.
Each and every time Russia is not going to come out and provide protection to countries.
Also, individual countries need to learn how to play international politics. Serbians chasing Kosovo people out of their home and out of Serbia is something west can really pounce upon through disinformation and media stage setting. Also, Syria needs to conduct reforms that bring some sort of normalcy in their society which has been under the 'emergency laws' for decades now. It is said that every second Syrian is a government spy. Dictators cannot act like spoiled brats and go on getting in trouble and hope Russia or China will come out a protect them every time. Although Gaddhafi became a 'good boy' to the west but he still paid the price for the bad days. So when power ratios are in a mismatch, nations have to keep west at a distance especially when it comes to issues that may develop global consensus for attack.
