Russia to send Iran missile systems

By United Press International

Russian President Vladimir Putin Wednesday ordered the shipment of five S300VM Antey-2500 surface-to-air missile defense systems to Iran.

Putin ordered officials to prepare to ship the missile systems to the Islamic Republic, saying in exchange he expects Iran to cancel its $4 billion lawsuit against Russia, the Russian website reported.

Iran's Ambassador to Russia Seyed Mahmoud Reza Sajadi said his country is prepared to make the compromise, the website said.

Iran filed a lawsuit against Russia after it reneged on a 2007 agreement to supply the Islamic Republic with at least five S300 VM Antey-2500 missile defense systems, a modified version of the more advanced S300 systems.

Putin also said Russia will go ahead with a deal to build a second nuclear power station in Bushehr in Iran, the site noted. Putin will discuss both issues in his upcoming visit to Iran on Friday, the website said.

The Kuwaiti newspaper al Rai reported Tuesday that Russia recently transferred a number of advanced S-300 missile defense batteries to Syria. The report said since Aug. 21, when hundreds of Syrian civilians were killed in a chemical weapons attack by the Syrian regime, Russia has accelerated shipments of arms to President Bashar Assad's regime.

    Maybe this is where the chemical weapons from Syria are going to end up.

    Oh yeah Lurch, Obozo, Manchin, says we can trust the Russkies on the chemical weapons end. Well you see from this how well we can trust them. They promised not to send these SAMS to Persia and now they are, to be used against the US if we have to bomb Tehran.

    We brought all of this on ourselves for meddling in a part of the world where we had no business.

    Sorry, but it’s true.

    And no, I don’t have any use for the Islamic Republic of Iran. But I would suggest that Russia intends to keep Iran’s nuclear activities under tight control to prevent any danger to Russia itself.

    That is right. We started the cold war, and we will be sure to keep it going.
