It seems their is more afoot than we know. Why would Russia help Iran beef up it's defenses? All I've been reading is the U.S. is begining talks with Iran using ties with Saudi Arabia. They have left Israel to go it alone possibly? They may be using this as a gap to strenthen themselves aagainst a future attack as the U.S has started to go to the table. We (US) should have continued high pressure against Iran. They have become more agressive by being more defensive in my book.
Kinda funny that Russia has ships heading into the mediteranian also. Something is gonna break this thing wide open. Does it not seem more of a dangerous situation to you all?

MOSCOW (AFP) - Russia on Friday denied selling a powerful new air defence system to Iran, following an announcement by the Iranian government that Russia would supply it.
"The question of selling Iran an S-300 anti-air missile system... is not on the agenda, is not being discussed and is not being talked currently about with the Iranian side," the Federal Service for Military Cooperation said in a statement.
