Speaking today at a press conference, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev hinted at a stronger Russian opposition to war against Syria or Iran, key issues on the eve of an upcoming G8 summit.
“At some point such actions which undermine state sovereignty may lead to a full-scale regional war, even, although I do not want to frighten anyone, with the use of nuclear weapons,” Medvedev warned. “Everyone should bear this in mind.”
He went on to warn against “hasty military operations,” but provided no further detail on how the wars would “go nuclear” since neither Syria nor Iran has any nuclear weapons of their own. This leaves open the possibility that Russia could be drawn into such a conflict on their side.
This is particularly true in Syria, where Russia has particularly close ties to the Assad regime, and has been loudly condemning Western efforts to back the rebels in a growing Civil War. Russia has been supporting Syria, and vetoing UN resolutions that might lead to war.

Russia should sit Bibi, and his terrorist clan down and give them a reality check. Israel must realize that the price it will pay will be grave for any attack on Iran, and may end the Zionist entity completely.
Good. Someone has to say it. No one is safe from the mad shadow government that wants to destroy the world.
Unfortunately that is exactly what Christian/Jewish Religious End-Time Nutcases want to hear.
Most of the end timers know very little about geography, even the history of their own religion, and the history of other regions of the world. That takes historical study from various sources. That is a hurdle that is often too high for them.
I do hope that if/when the US/Israel decide to attack Iran/Syria, that Russia steps up to the plate. They are clearly reaching a point where they can no longer afford to back down in the face of US expansion in the region (thanks in part to Medvedev's ill-informed "abstain" in the UN security council over Libya). If they lose their naval base in Syria, they will no longer have a foothold in the Middle-East. Perhaps this is one of the reasons why Putin snubbed the upcoming G8 meeting. Since there's a 50/50 chance that Obama could go the way of the dodo in November, and with Romney considering Russia an "enemy," perhaps it's better that he keep his distance and prepare for the worse.
It was good that Medvedev said what he said but at this pt. I am beginning to suspect that there is a power group within the US and Israel that is actually looking forward to a nuclear war, the 'dream' war, or the war of their dreams that was stolen from then more than 2 decades ago when Gorbachev advanced the peace process to stop it.
Lyndon LaRouche has been saying that the US and Russia are on a collision course towards thermonuclear war since last year, at the point that Qaddafi was assassinated. The British wanted an immediate "Libya" invasion of Syria and Iran last year, specifically to provoke the Russians against the US, which would then easily spiral into a thermonuclear war. Several US Generals (eg. Dempsey) stepped up to cool things down late last year. The British monetary system is at end-game, and they don't want their empire replaced by a seeming Russia-China threat, so they're going for a quick population reduction war in Asia. Now, the Russians have drawn a line in the sand, saying that if NATO moves forward with the ABMs in East Europe, they may make a preemptive strike. The only way to really stop the thermonuclear war, is for Obama to be impeached, or yanked according to the 25th Amendment of the Constitution. Note, that now their are impeachment resolutions in both the House (H.Con. Resolution 107) and Senate (The Military Humanitarian Operations Act of 2012). Unless Obama's ousted, legally, we're on the verge of global thermonuclear holocaust. See the LaRouche PAC statement on this: http://larouchepac.com/node/22726
