Russia: “Should Anything Happen to Iran … This Will Be a Direct Threat to Our National Security”
Russia and China Would Consider An Attack On Iran – Or Syria – As An Attack On Their National SecurityRT notes:
The escalating conflict around Iran should be contained by common effort, otherwise the promising Arab Spring will grow into a “scorching Arab Summer,” says Dmitry Rogozin, Russia’s deputy prime minister and former envoy to NATO.Here’s what Rogozin is talking about (notice how close the Southern tip of Russia is to Northern Iran):
“Iran is our close neighbor, just south of the Caucasus. Should anything happen to Iran, should Iran get drawn into any political or military hardships, this will be a direct threat to our national security,” stressed Rogozin.
While many Americans still believe that our government would not be crazy enough to attack Iran, economic – not national security – considerations may be driving the warmongers.
In addition, Iran and Syria have had a mutual defense pact for years. And China and Russia might also defend Syria if it is attacked. So an attack on Syria could draw Iran into the war … followed by China and Russia.
