Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Le Canard Enchainé (a VERY reliable investigative weekly) says that French services have been made aware that Putin has apparently warned the Iranians to expect an attack near the end of this year (between then end of the ramadan and the beginning of 2008).

A lot of military activity seems to be going on, with Russia providing brand new anti-aerial missiles and defense systems, as well as small patrol boats and anti-ship missiles for the Persian Gulf, and the US providing bunker busters to Israel.

Le Canard notes that the French military have observed training runs by Israeli airplanes with US air support, and that they are beign told by their US counterpart that Iran is currently under massive spy satellite observation.

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes
