At the most China will launch its monetairy bomb, nothing more..
RAF Tornados intercepted eight Russian bombers as they approached UK airspace. The Bear Tupolev-95 planes - which can carry nuclear and Cruise missiles - were detected by Nato early this morning.
Ministry of Defence officials said four F3 fighters were scrambled from RAF Leeming in Yorkshire and RAF Waddington in Lincolnshire.

I am a bit out to lunch on weapons technology, but won't it take some time to send, deliver, install and train Iranian forces to use something like this? I don't think an advanced air defense system is like installing a microwave oven.
My point is that if this is a direct result of Iran preparing for Israeli/US airstrikes then won't it be too late (assuming we are on the eve of war) for the Iranians to acquire such technology?
Or does this indicate that the Iranians, although they assume a air assault is inevitable, don't think it will happen for some time?

...everyone was afraid Ahmadinajad(sp) was going to launch some kind of attack...
In 1976, (Ahmadinejad) took Iran's national university entrance exams (konkoor) to gain admission into Iran's top universities. His test score ranked him 132nd among over 400,000 participants that year, landing him at the Iran University of Science and Technology (IUST) as an undergraduate student of civil engineering.
After the Iranian Revolution, he entered the Master of Science program for civil engineering in 1984. In 1989, he became a member of the Science faculty at the university where he had studied. In 1997, he received his Ph.D. in transportation engineering and planning from the Science and Technology University.

If America would not be installing nuclear missile sites in Europe, then much of these power games between countries would not be taking place. How did America like it when Mother Russia was sending missiles to Cuba?
