It presents a problem for Russia because the Iran situation will result in military action eventually and Russia will be dragged into it, and China too. The more the merrier.

WASHINGTON – The Russian military anticipates that an attack will occur on Iran by the summer and has developed an action plan to move Russian troops through neighboring Georgia to stage in Armenia, which borders on the Islamic republic, according to informed Russian sources.
"Iran is our neighbor," Rogozin said. "If Iran is involved in any military action, it's a direct threat to our security." Rogozin now is the deputy Russian prime minister and is regarded as anti-Western. He oversees Russia's defense sector.
What if Russia decided Mexican Terrorists bombed Moscow sites and they wanted to respond by deploying 5000 troops in Mexico to clear out a few Cartels as a retaliation, it would turn into a huge international event and possibly large scale war.
We know what happened when ICMB's were deployed during the Kennedy years in Cuba. Potentially the end-of-the-word if the Russian PM reacted and gave the Russian Subs to go ahead on US Ships who were dropping depth charges... Something as simple as that.
With all the US/UN/NATO Troops in the Middle East and Russia standing it's ground near Iran. Anything could happenedit on 9-4-2012 by CALGARIAN because: (no reason given)edit on 9-4-2012 by CALGARIAN because: (no reason given)

And the wonderful thing is...the Russian don't talk a lot, so no one knows their real intentions and they just do what they need to do without having to rally the support of other countries. They just go at it alone.
