This Will Be Russia's Waterloo

If Russia does play a strong role in sanctions against Iran --- this will be Russia's Waterloo in that the Muslims in places like Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and others will join with Iran.

Israel's prime minister says he will press the case for "crippling sanctions" against Iran when he visits Russia this week.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sets out on a three-day visit to Moscow later Sunday.

He'll be meeting with Russian leaders just days after Iran announced it would be enriching uranium to higher levels for medical purposes. That process could be used to build bombs if ramped up further.

Israel, the U.S. and much of the international community think Iran is out to build a bomb. Tehran denies that.
