Will War in Middle East involve Russia, and will it be a Nuclear War?

Blogman's Notes:

As if the world is not insane enough, the insanity is being ratcheted up as Russia now threatens a Nuclear response if its interests are threatened in the Middle East. The one constant about man is that man is completely insane, a race of  psychopathic mass murders. If anyone has any doubts about the nature of man, perhaps they should pick up a history book and read; the pages of history are colored red with blood shed from the blood of Abel to countless billions murdered at the hands of their brothers through the centuries. Thankfully the Prince of Peace will return one day, possibly in the near future, and will destroy forever the prince of Darkness who currently rules this insane, bloodthirsty world!

Isaiah 9:6
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Micah 4:3
And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

Russia Would Use Nukes to Stave Off Threats - General Staff

Russia would use nuclear weapons in response to any imminent threat to its national security, Chief of the Russian General Staff Gen. Nikolai Makarov said on Wednesday.
“We are certainly not planning to fight against the whole of NATO,” Makarov said in an interview with the Ekho Moskvy radio, “but if there is a threat to the integrity of the Russian Federation, we have the right to use nuclear weapons, and we will.”
The general said Russia’s nuclear deterrent is the cornerstone of strategic stability and serious efforts are being taken by the Russian government to modernize the country’s nuclear triad.
The Russian Defense ministry is planning to acquire at least 10 Borey class strategic nuclear submarines, thoroughly modernize its fleet of Tu-160 Blackjack and Tu-95 Bear strategic bombers, and equip its Strategic Missile Forces with formidable Yars mobile ballistic missile systems.

So much for the Cold War being over!
Russian military drafts options for responding to attack on Iran

Special to
MOSCOW — Russia has been preparing for the prospect of an Israeli or
U.S. air strike on Iran in 2012.
Officials said the Kremlin has ordered the military to draft options for
a Russian response to any foreign attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities. They
said the Defense Ministry has established a facility to monitor Teheran, an
ally and trading partner of Moscow.

Russian Chief of Staff Gen. Nikolai Makarov
“Iran, of course, is a sore spot,” Russian Chief of Staff Gen. Nikolai
Makarov said.
Makarov said Iran has become the leading focus of the Kremlin. He said the Defense Ministry has established a center to closely monitor Iran and the rest of the Middle East.
Makarov said international pressure on Iran has been growing and could be followed by military action. He said the current sanctions on Teheran could lead to a confrontation in mid-2012.
“Some kind of decision should be taken, probably closer to summer,” Makarov said on Feb. 14.
In 2011, Russia completed a $1 billion project to launch Iran’s first
nuclear energy reactor. At the same time, the Kremlin, which cited United Nations sanctions, returned about $350 million in a downpayment for the
S-300PMU1 air defense system for Teheran.
“We used to have a general on duty at each main command,” Makarov said.
“Now, we have created a situation center that receives all the necessary
information in real-time.”
The United States has also increased monitoring of Israel and Iran out
of concern for a regional war in 2012. On Feb. 14, Defense Secretary Leon
Panetta told the Senate Armed Services Committee that he could not determine
whether Israel has decided to strike Iran’s nuclear facilities this spring.
