Thanks for nothing Russia.
W better get off his ass before chit gets way out of hand.
This is no suprise!
At least they're only short range SAM's. Let them waste their money. They represent no insurmountable obstacle to either us or the Israelis.
We just need to make sure that that is all they are buying.
My guess is that what they admit to and the truth are two different things.
I'm with you!
Why do we partiularly care?
Seriously, if they arent nukes (which russia is not going to give to the Iranians) what does it realy matter to us. These are short ranged weapons, the chances for an attack on the US using these weapons is nil. Why do we care? I am not being sarcastic, I am looking for info.
I'll tell you why we should not only care, but only half object to this:
We can take out any SAM installation with a tomahawk without risking any pilots, only money.
Any SAM defenses the Iranians are constructing are because they fear a repeat of the Israeli attack on the Iraqi nuclear facility back in the mid-80's. They are hiding their facilities, as opposed to the Iraqis who constructed in the open, but the Mossad is good and they can't be sure their sites are secure. So they place SAM sites between their sites and any approaches to them the Israeli air force might use.
Why only half object?
Because satellite reconnaisance of where they put these SAMs will give us a good idea where their nuclear weapons projects are being conducted.
These SAMs will tell us where the Iranian nukes are.
So you will hear complaints. But we won't do anything to stop this sale.
Funny how things work aint it? Just think, the Russians
launched Sputnik and that launched our space program, that made our intel-satellites possible to track their SAMs sold to Iran.
Amazing. Only last year was thier incident with the School attack. Yet they still support countries which (probably) have ties with terrorism.
