A military solution to the standoff over Iran's nuclear ambitions is unacceptable and there is no need at the moment for new sanctions, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said on Friday.
But Medvedev said Russia continued to support a diplomatic drive led by European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana to offer Tehran a package of incentives in return for it reining in some of its nuclear activities.
Translation: Medvedev is saying, as clearly as humanly possible, that Israel and the US should not even think of using force as a resolution to their issues with Iran.
If the US and Israel stupidly move forward with a military strike, expect Russia to side with Iran in any military confrontation.
War with Russia, anyone??
