Russian-Georgian conflict best for Iran
The ongoing conflict between the former soviet republic and the largest country in the world has had the apparently unintended effect of drawing away attention from Iran. While only a couple of weeks ago pundits across the U.S. airwaves were ready to declare war on Iran, for nothing. Now the thought of attacking Iran while a resurgent Russia reestablishes its sphere of influence, seems at best foolish.
Though we should never discount the potential for foolishness of our fearless leaders.
