Is Russia Massing Troops To Defend Iran?

Russia is massing troops on the Georgian border in anticipation of an attack on Iran. To reach Iran, they would have to march through Georgian territory and stage in Armenia. And it's unlikely that either of those nations would appreciate Russian troops on their soil.
Russian Security Council head Viktor Ozerov said that Russian General Military Headquarters has prepared an action plan in the event of an attack on Iran.

Dmitry Rogozin, who recently was the Russian ambassador to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, or NATO, warned against an attack on Iran.

"Iran is our neighbor," Rogozin said. "If Iran is involved in any military action, it's a direct threat to our security." Rogozin now is the deputy Russian prime minister and is regarded as anti-Western. He oversees Russia's defense sector.
Oh and by the way, this is Georgia in Europe, not in the southeastern United States.
