Found this nifty article. The Strategery is stupendous. It's like a game of RISK but for REAL.

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.
Cool Huh? Enough of these silly little Police Actions and Freedom Masquerades, let's have a real war.

Russian Defense Ministry sources say that the Russian military doesn't believe that Israel has sufficient military assets to defeat Iranian defenses and further believes that U.S. military action will be necessary.

The implication of preparing to move Russian troops not only is to protect its own vital regional interests but possibly to assist Iran in the event of such an attack. Sources add that a Russian military buildup in the region could result in the Russian military potentially engaging Israeli forces, U.S. forces, or both.

Enough of these Big Bully USA Wars against guys with spears and rockflint, let's fight somebody our own size for once. Let's unleash the Arsenal and let the chips fall where they might. Let's Dr. Strangelove the the whole shebang.

Everyone thinks Obama is a genius at 7th dimensional chess, let's hope he can just play regular chess with the chess masters. After all Obama is not “Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice and I won't get fooled again” George Bush.

Informed sources say that the Russians have warned of "unpredictable consequences" in the event Iran is attacked, with some Russians saying that the Russian military will take part in the possible war because it would threaten its vital interests in the region.
We move into Iran, they move into Georgia and then it's a bing, bang and boom to the Apocilypsi. Way cool, right? I bet we get to see the super-secret death-rays and weapons from space and dirty bombs like Bio-germ-radiation-feedback or something that would make Buck Rogers proud. We've spent trillions on so many secrets, one of them has to be, like, Wow! We'll give the International Space Station a real American Fourth of July Fireworks Celebration if you know what I mean.
 
The influential Russian Nezavisimaya Gazeta newspaper has quoted a Russian military source as saying that the situation forming around Syria and Iran "causes Russia to expedite the course of improvement of its military groups in the South Caucasus, the Caspian, Mediterranean and Black Sea regions."
Yup. The whole Khakcrackistan Caspian Sea basin thing with all that oil we've been getting in bed with since the breakup of the USSR? Not so fast Uncle Sam. The days of unchallenged American power are over.

See, this little issue over Iran's right to develop nuclear energy could easily spin out of control as the hubris of The War Machine grinds on. We can call our Foreign Policy: Callous and Clueless. Rude and Wrong. But it's worth it if Iran doesn't get the bomb. Someday. Maybe. Quien sabe? Because they are crazy religious fanatics out to destroy and/or conquer the world. They have ninja vixens, purring like Sirens off Crete ready to seduce and snap the necks of our brave fighting boys fresh from the killing fields of Iraq. And of course, the Iranians have all of Saddam's WMDs which they bought off Osama because it's an International Terrorist Network of Evil! BAAAWWAAA!!!

This new war in Iran, if it happens, and the Russians think for certain by summer; this war is needless, stupid and very, very sad. A tragedy. Iran is a threat to nothing but Israel and America's vanity. Iran should be applauded for the restraint its shown so far under attack from US and Israel sponsored terrorist groups on assassination and sabotage missions in addition to the economic warfare waged against the Islamic Republic of Iran.

It is Classic Neocon hysteria which fuel the drums of war and not Iran's threat to peace in the Middle East or the world. It's baloney. And if Israel wants to wage war against Iran, fine, buen suerte, have at it, but leave America out of it. Take war off the table Mr. President. Do the country a favor. All of them.

Because the threat posed by The Iran War Gone Wrong like we have seen the incompetent General Staff of the U.S. Military bring us wars gone quagmire in Iraq and Afghanistan is nothing compared to the actual or perceived threat posed by Iran and the Mighty Militant Mullahs of Tehran. One misstep, miscalculation or act of misguided zeal and BOOM.

Our Generals have scenarios. It's Paint By Numbers War. It's why we always lose. Al Qaeda played us like a village idiot. The Russians play Chess. The Chinese invented 11th Dimension Whojiwutzit. Persians, Chinese, Hindus, Oh My! The Cradle of Civilizations versus The Pop Tart Empire.

The American People used to have a say in the wars they fought, but no longer. War is the greatest evil on Earth. And the people have no vote on whether or not they agree to war. War by Fiat. Diktat. The President is the Decider.

Just Say No to War with Iran, Mr. President. The World will thank you and you'll finally deserve that Prize you won.

The alternative is Infamy.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
