From Google translate :
Moscow is preparing for war with Iran Israel: the impact is sudden and very soon

According to the newspaper, the military preparations of Russia to minimize losses due to possible military action against Tehran launched a year ago and is now almost complete.

According to sources in the Defense Ministry in October-November 2011 is fully optimized for the 102nd military base in Armenia. Families of servicemen taken to Russia and the Russian garrison stationed near Yerevan, cut, military units stationed there, transferred to the district of Gyumri, close to the Turkish border. It is with Turkey are possible strikes by the U.S. military targets in Iran.

On December 1, 2011 in full combat readiness are the Russian troops at military bases in South Ossetia and Abkhazia, and the Black Sea Fleet ships drifting near the border with Georgia, which in this conflict can act on the side of anti-Iranian forces. In Izberbash (Dagestan), which is almost near the Azerbaijani border in constant combat readiness is a separate coast missile battalion, equipped with anti-ship missiles onshore "Bal-E," which is the range of 130 km.

In the district of Makhachkala and the Caspian from Astrakhan relocated all rocket launches Caspian flotilla is to create a single ship group. In doing so, the flagship of the fleet sentry rocket ship "Tatarstan" will soon be joined by small gun ship "Volgodonsk" and the rocket ship "Dagestan". Flagships of the fleet are equipped with missile systems with ranges of up to 200 km. By the shores of the Mediterranean in the carrier group recently went to the Northern Fleet, led by heavy aircraft carrying cruiser "Admiral Kuznetsov", which intends to go to the Syrian port of Tartus.

Sources of "NG" in the Defense Ministry did not confirm nor refute the fact that the escorted ship above water grouping of nuclear submarines of the Northern Fleet. What tasks will be to carry out the army and navy, if war breaks out against Iran, not officially reported, but the Russian Defense Ministry, apparently concerned about the state of logistics troops in Armenia. 102nd military base - a key point, Russia's outpost in the Caucasus.

Military expert Colonel Vladimir Popov does not exclude the participation of Russia in the military conflict in Iran. "In the worst scenario, when Tehran would face a complete military defeat in the case of anti-land invasion of Iran in the U.S. and NATO forces, Russia will provide military assistance. At least on the military-technical level, "- predicts Vladimir Popov.


So it's not very clear... but we can see a bunch of points...
- Russian forces in Abkhazia and South Ossetia on high alert since December 1 2011.
- The Black Sea Fleet will stick around the Georgian Coast
- The Russian base in Armenia was fully optimized during October-November 2011, the number of troops at that base was reduced and military families were sent back to Russia. Military units near the base were sent to Gyumri, near the Turkish border.
- An anti-ship missile battalion was put in Izberbash, on the Russian Caspian Sea coast. (opposing Iran)
- Regrouped all the Russian warships in the caspian sea region under one fleet.
- The Russian aircraft carrier will be sent to Tartus, Syria. (that's why the elite wants to take out Syria before Iran)
- According to military expert Vladimir Popov, Russia would give weapons to Iran if Iran were to be invaded

Seems to me Russia is getting ready for all hell to break loose in Armenia and Georgia. But concretely, they won't do much to help Iran.

Well, they only have the one carrier.




Would you risk your one and only aircraft carrier against US forces?

I think we have eleven right now.




During WWII we built them faster than the Japs could sink them. They were smaller though...

that is one of the things i have always liked about them they tend to be blunter then most countries and with the georgia situation in particular when they say they will do something they usualy do it and do it promptly(cuban missle crisis an exception) i think if russia and america ever teamed up again ala ww2 that our nations would be unstopable if we just co-operated and met mutal threats together two super powers on the same team tends to be a game changer

A significant number of Russians, around 4,6 million, live elsewhere in the world, mostly in the Americas and Western Europe, but also in other places of Eastern Europe, Asia and elsewhere

So I call BS on your ``3 million Russians are in Israel comment.

There's 7 million population in Israel... you're telling me about half of Israel population are Russians? BS.

Israel population

Total: 7,797,400[1]
Note: includes over 200,000 Israelis and 250,000 Arabs in East Jerusalem, about 325,000 Israeli settlers in the West Bank, and about 42,000 in the Golan Heights (July 2007 est.). Does not include 222,000 foreigners living in the country.

222k foreigners... and most of them are probably NOT Russians...

Russia won't attack Israel... but they wouldn't care.

russia might bluster but they wont confront the US Military over Iran, no more then the US woud confront Russia's military over another country. Way to much at stake on both sides. Iran will stand alone. Other countries though will be happy to sell Iran targets for US missles such as new tanks etc...

Now if we could have the Chinese plan...

A general said China would wage WW3 over Iran... but REALLY what would China do?

Americans are quickly building military hospitals in Georgia, seems they are preparing for war with Iran. Georgia is Russian neighboor. Weird... If Russia advances forward over Georgia, than what is the purpose of these hospital bases?

Provide tech support/intel and get nice juicy contracts for the reconstruction effort.

I can see strikes on Iran but not an invasion of Iran.

Russian forces hadnt seen combat for a while, they need some real-time training. This would be a good scenario.

For one thing, we must stop picturing just the middle east. A "world" war means a wider theater, like maybe an attack on our west coast or an attack on any of the US bases around the world. China did say it would defend Iran, didn't it?

Who ever owns the air, owns the war

I have to agree with the consensus here, if anything we would do an air strike on the facilities and leave when we were done. Russia will protect their interests and might even arm Iran or aid them in a war but they are not going to fight and die for Iran.
