Update: Russia warns Israel, West against attack on Iran -- Reuters

My Comment: Will this White House and an Israeli government (weakened after yesterday's election) decide to get together (or independently) and launch a military strike against Iran .... I just do not see it. Put 4 aircraft carrier groups in the Arabian Sea and scores of fighter squadrons in the Gulf sheikdoms followed with a positioning of B-2s at Diego Garcia .... maybe .... but today .... nothing of this sort is happening.
