    I'm sure this has nothing to do with the fact that Iran is a major buyer of Russian military weapons and technology, of course.

    No. If we actually were in a war with Iran then the russians openly supplying arms would be the near eequivalent of declaring war with the US and a reopening of the cold war. Its in Russias best interest(at least in terms of making money from arms sales) to have the iranians paranoid of attack and buying as many arms as possible.

    Thanks for taking the time to post those links, but I think that you took a small wrong turn in analysing them...

    The predictions of when the war would start are somewhat irrellevant since the US has been posturing to justify a war with Iran, this posturing has been going on for somewhere around a year now.

    So, really, the picture is getting more and more clear that there WILL BE a war with Iran, though nobody on this forum is likely to have anything of accurate information as to WHEN this war might begin. It might not even be the US that initiates this war, but regardless, we should be greatly concerned if there is a war with Iran if only because such a conflict would be HIGHLY likely to spill over into other regions, OR become a nuclear conflict.

    I hope that I am wrong about this though.

    Mebbe trying to fake out the Iranians who might think the way you do. 'Talk of an American attack? It's just talk. It's always just talk.'

    Then BAM.

    Re: Russian Chief of Staff: US plans to strike Iran

    The top US military officer said that any military strike against Iran would not be "decisive" in countering its nuclear programme.

    "No strike, however effective, will be in and of itself decisive,"
    Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told a news conference, adding that he supported using diplomatic and economic pressure against Iran.

    [...]

    On Sunday, Petraeus said the United States, which along with its ally Israel has not ruled out military strikes against Iran's nuclear sites, would increase pressure on Tehran.

    "I think that no one at the end of this time can say that the United States and the rest of the world have not given Iran every opportunity to resolve the issues diplomatically," said Petraeus, head of US Central Command.

    This gives credence to the Russian assessment that we wouldn't attack until we wind down from either Iraq or Afghanistan.

    If air attacks were enough to seal the deal we could do it right now but Mullen says it wouldn't be decisive which means a ground war would be necessary as well.

    Re: Russian Chief of Staff: US plans to strike Iran

    The United States warned Iran on Tuesday that "time and patience is running out" with its nuclear program, saying Tehran had shown no interest in allaying world fears.

    White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said Iran's recent pronouncements showed "they have no interest in building international confidence that their nuclear program is for peaceful means."

    Gibbs reiterated US warnings of "consequences" if Iran continues to develop uranium enrichment capabilities, adding, "Time and patience is running out."

    Iran said Monday that it was considering building two more uranium enrichment programs inside mountains to protect them from air strikes.

    No posturing is needed. The blatantly corrupt government of Iran has had it coming to them for many years. Nobody has forced them to make the many poor choices that they have made. Their populace doesnīt want them, most of the rest of the Arab states donīt want, the Israelis certainly donīt want them and neither do we, so long as they stay the course. The Iranian government is the most signicant threat to world peace and the most significant threat to their own populace. The road to war goes through the Iranian government; it is up to them.
