Russia continues its short-sighted power game. From AP, with thanks to Erick Stakelbeck:
Russia’s top military chief on Thursday warned the United States against launching a military strike against Iran and a top diplomat voiced hope that close cooperation with China could help resolve the Tehran nuclear crisis.
With tension mounting over Iran’s nuclear programs, Gen. Yuri Baluyevsky, the chief of Russia’s general staff, warned the United States against attacking Iran.
“A military scenario can’t be ruled out,” Baluyevsky was quoted as saying by Russian news agencies.
He said that while Iran’s military potential cannot compare to the United States’, “it is hard to predict how the Muslim world will respond to the use of force against Iran.”
“This may stir the whole world, and it is crucial to prevent anything like that,” Baluyevsky was quoted as saying.
Yes, just allow Ahmadinejad to develop a nuclear bomb. That will certainly bring peace.
