Good point, I kinda missed that.
But, does Iran still have plans to conquer Europe, or are they content to assert their dominance in the middle east?
If Turkey is suffering from a natural disaster the Irish Goverment would send troops to help with humanitarian aid and such.
Perhaps the humanitarian troops get caught in the Iranian invaision of Turkey?
ill try and get more soon.

Arma 2 - Virtual Backpacks never looked so good
I dont think Russia would be to content on letting Iran control much of the middle east.
Russia would probably not like to have a large and unpredictable empire and military so close to them.
Iran would control much of the world's oil and take countrys that were previously under Russian influence and put them under Iranian influence.
What im trying to say is " Would Russia tolerate another world superpower so close to it and a superpower that is unpredictable and controls much of Russia's fuel?"
As for Russia, Iran and EU relationships, I think the most logical behavior for us would be to remain neutral, while covertly (or openly, if threat is too high) helping the weaker side, in order to prevent too much strengthening of one of the sides - akin to politics of the British Empire on continental Europe in XIX century. Same goes for China and its adversaries, be it states of the Central Asia, South Korea, Japan or USA. Not a single state would be happy to have a great power right next to its border, even if this power is an ally - after all, alliances are temporary, but threat is constant and the more powerful neighbor represents the more powerful threat. Besides, even an ally, if it's located close enough, will try to extend its influence on neighboring states or even within our own country, which is a direct threat to the state security. After all, we have fought five wars with Persia in between XVII and XX centuries, and had two military operations against them in XX century.
Personally i don't like to see Russians as bad guys.
It seems to be recurring cliche that the Russians are on the side of Iran or China or whatever asian/middle-eastern state is potrayed as the bad guys.
What role did the Russians have in the "Jeruselem Peace accord".?
I agree with Corvinus that the Russians would remain neutral for their interests.

I might write up something new at some point, if Inspiration strikes.
These are really intended as little mood-bites to give a feel of how the troops on one or the other side are living prior to the conflict kicking off.
