‘Invading Iran is invading Russia, China’

truther 3
A political analyst says Russia and China consider a US military action on Iran as an attack on their own borders and a threat to their own national security.

“The US is assuming that Russia or China will not respond militarily, but they’ve been wrong before,” Shamus Cooke wrote on the Global Research website.

Cooke explained that when former US president George W. Bush gave the green light to the then President of Georgia Mikheil Saakahvili to attack South Ossetia in 2008, “Russia surprised everyone by responding militarily and crushing Georgia’s invasion.”

“Attacking Syria and/or Iran opens the door to a wider regional or even international war,” Cooke stressed.

Last Month, Major General Zhang Zhaozhong, professor from the Chinese National Defense University, said China would not hesitate to protect the Islamic Republic against a military strike, even if this means the start of the Third World War.

Also last week, Russian Ambassador to the UN Vitaly Churkin vehemently criticized any plans of attacking Iran, describing the measure as “a very dangerous scenario” which could lead to a “regional catastrophe.”

The United States and Israel have repeatedly threatened Tehran with the “option” of a military strike, based on the allegation that Iran’s nuclear program may consist of a covert military agenda.

Iran has refuted the allegations, saying that as a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), it has the right to develop and acquire nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.

Over the past weeks, Israel has renewed its aggressive rhetoric against Iran. On November 21, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak warned that “time has come” to deal with Iran.

Israeli President Shimon Peres also threatened on November 6 that an attack against Iran is becoming “more and more likely.”

Iranian officials have promised a crushing response to any military strike against the country, warning that any such measure could result in a war that would spread beyond the Middle East.

“If the US becomes militarily involved with Syria and Iran, it is up to the working people of the US to mobilize in massive numbers in the streets to prevent such an attack,” Cooke concluded.

      @Joe maybe they support sanctions, NOT military intervention. sanctions and military strike is not the same in any way. so you get your facts and also a dictionary.

    Those of the “ESTALISHMENT” particularly the leaders of the west, will be torn apart by the masses as the consequences of their attack on Iran takes place.For take place it will. It will mean considerable hardships, foodshortages, infrastructure breakdown and all that that means, to peoples who have had the most comfortable and prosperous lifestyles on the planet. To lose so much, because of so few in power, will lead the people to drag out and execute all those who are part of the ruling establishment, be they local, or of central government. That human psyche to seek a scapegoat for ones ills means that no one will escapr the fury of the masses, those in the media, the financial sector, the religious groups,and all those officials recognized as part of the ruling system, in every town and city they will come to a violent end. The resentment is already evident on a world wide scale as people everywhere are rebelling against these ruling despots, it will only get worse, and an attack on Iran will only add fuel to a fire that is already lit. Holocausts are already taking place around the world, mainly by the western powers, motivated by the greedy bankers and their corporations that are mentally infected by an avariciousness akin to drug addiction. Their addiction is of a global obsession, they will not stop now.
