"The United States warned Russia against selling missiles to Syria amid reports that Moscow was ready to provide Damascus with a sophisticated weapon that could hit any target in Israel.

But Russia denied it had any such plans.

State Department spokesman Richard Boucher said Washington could consider sanctions against Moscow if it went through with reported plans to sell Syria its SS-26 Iskander missile.

Secretary of State Colin Powell also raised the reported sale in talks here Wednesday with Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov, according to a State Department official speaking on condition of anonymity.

"The US policy on this is very clear," Boucher said. "We're against the sale of weaponry to Syria, against the sale of lethal military equipment to Syria, which is a state sponsor of terrorism."

He said the United States was aware of reports a deal was brewing and "we think those kinds of sales are not appropriate. ... The Russians know about this policy. They know about our views."

The Russian media carried reports of the planned sale as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad prepared to visit Russia on January 24 for talks with President Vladimir Putin.

The press accounts said Israel was furious at the prospect of Syria obtaining the missile, an updated version of the Scud used by Iraq in the first Gulf War, that could strike almost anywhere in the Jewish state."

These missiles could hit Israel or US forces in Iraq. We need to take Syria out, and soon.........

This is none of America's business and they should butt out. It is Russia's sovereign right to sell weapons to Syria, as it would be for the European Union to sell weapons to China.

The Bush Administration raves on about freedom yet they blackmale another nation into not doing what it wishes, it's madness!

thanks,

It would be OK with you if Syria has missiles that can attack Israel?
It's OK for a terror state to have missles to attack oh say Australia?

I fully agree that Syria should obtain those missiles to defend itself against Isreal. Isreal needs to be put in check or just destroyed which honestly I think would be better for the world.

Yeah and American would NEVER sell weapons to a country that threatened Australia or anyone else
I can remember the US selling Indonesia weapons while they were a dictatorship under general Suharto, who was annexing countries just off our coastline.

"The United States government has aided and abetted the Suharto regime's illegal annexation of East Timor from the moment of Indonesia's 1975 invasion up through the present. Beyond turning a blind eye to Indonesian repression in East Timor, the most tangible expression of U.S. support for the Suharto regime has been a massive, steady supply of U.S. armaments to the Indonesian military."

Look around and you will find a pretty heated battle going on between communist rebels and the dictator in those days. Now the counrty is over run with Islamo-terrorist. But that was 1975 and the weapons were small arms...........not hyper-accurate missiles.

if that state is a sovereign power, it is still Russia's right to sell them weapons regardless, though I don't see a 'terrorist state' anywhere near australia
.

Anyways, why should Russia have to bend to US pressure on selling missiles to a country like Syria? the issue of Israel in the world is pretty damn divided you'll see and not everyone agrees with the United States policies on Israel.

Need I remind you Israel launched an attack against Syria last year? who's really the terrorist state?

thanks,

Israel can do no wrong. A pre-emptive strike against any Muslim state is OK by me. Israel and America are fight for their respective "lives".

Indonesia by the way is a terrorist state. Iran has missiles that can hit Aussies.

Umm... so it's ok for Australians to be dying from American weapons that it supplied Indonesia and continued to supply throught the conflict and for many years after at the same time they are dying in Vietnam as allies of America?

Indonesia is not a terrorist state, in fact they have strong relations with us... dispite Downer's unfortunate comments and a democratic government that is very much against extremists. They have made a lot of progress since the days they were an agressive dictatorship.

NO, of course not. If you will check the data small arms sales are down world wide. go to globalsecurity.com or FAS website. This FACT happens to coincide with Bush's WAR on TERROR.
