TEHRAN (FNA)- Russia is building up forces in the Caucasus region, preparing to protect its interests if Israel attacks Iran with the help of the United States, the western media said.
GenerationalDynamics.com said the Russian military believes that if the US goes to war with Iran, it may deploy forces in friendly Georgia and warships in the Caspian Sea with the possible help of Azerbaijan.
Hence, Russia is deploying guided anti-ship missiles on the Caspian shore in preparation, and is forming an offensive spearhead force, heavily armed with modern long-range weapons.
In the case of an Iranian war, it's expected that the Russian spearhead will be ordered to strike south to prevent the presumed deployment of US bases in the region, to link up with the troops in Armenia, and take over the South Caucasus energy corridor along which Azeri, Turkmen and, other Caspian natural gas and oil may reach European markets.
By one swift military strike Russia may ensure control of all the Caucasus and the Caspian states, for the first time since the Soviet Union dissolved.
It is clear from the Generation Dynamics article that an Israeli attack on Iran will predicate a regional war that could lead to a conflict between the US and Russia.
The Israelis are willing to embark on a war with Iran to preserve their nuclear superiority in the middle east.
Should the Us be drawn into a regional war to protect Israel, a nation of 7 million people?
Rightardia doe not see how backing Israel in this tiff with Iran is in US national interests.
