Any Hope Of Containing Iran Is Gone

Dig this.
MOSCOW—The Russian military said Tuesday it had launched an airstrike against targets in Syria from an air base in western Iran, marking new military coordination between Tehran and Moscow in support of the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Tu-22M3 long-range bombers and Su-34 tactical bombers took off from an air base in Hamedan, Iran, to carry out a “concentrated airstrike” against the militant groups Islamic State and Nusra Front, the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement...

“We will put our facilities at Russia’s disposal in its war against terrorism,” Iran’s Supreme National Security Council said in a statement published by the agency.
The only way you were going to stop Iran from getting nukes was a ground invasion and regime change. The opportunity for that was almost completely lost when we pulled out of Iraq and Afghanistan. Now with the Russians inside Iran, that window is completely closed.

I hope those "Death to America!" chants were just vocal warm-up exercises.
