Ground invasion of Iran would make Iraq look pretty’
Russia has issued a clear warning to Israel over a possible attack on Iran. The Foreign Minister was responding to the Israeli president’s suggestion that a military strike on Iran is more likely than diplomacy. Sergey Lavrov said any such attack would be a serious mistake with unpredictable consequences. The UN nuclear watchdog is about to report on Iran’s nuclear activities where it’s thought it will reveal computer models of an atomic warhead and other weapons-related work. Israel’s main ally, the U.S., says it will focus on diplomacy but is ready to keep all options open. Political analyst Ivan Eland says Washington is unlikely to support Israel’s push for an attack.
