Russia to equip Iran with "game changer"


www.presstv.com

Russian arms exporter Rosoboronexport has disclosed that despite US opposition, Moscow intends to empower Iran by supplying the country additional air defense systems.

Moscow has already delivered 29 Tor-M1 missile systems to Iran under a $700 million (£386 million) contract signed in 2005.

Reports, however, began to surface as early as 2005 on the possibility of another deal - the delivery to Iran of S-300 surface-to-air missile systems that can complicate any aerial strike on Iranian nuclear facilities.

"If Tehran obtained the S-300, it would be a game-changer in military thinking for tackling Iran. That could be a catalyst for Israeli air attacks before it is operational," said Dan Goure, a long-time Pentagon advisor, in late August.

"This is a system that scares every Western air force," he continued.

Israeli officials themselves have also commented on the issue, confirming that the system, once acquired by Iran, would complicate a potential attack on the 'numerous, distant, and fortified' nuclear sites in the country.

Tel Aviv and its ally, the United States, have threatened to launch air strikes against Iranian nuclear facilities under the pretext that Tehran, a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), has plans to develop nuclear weapons.

This is while the UN nuclear watchdog in its latest report on Iran announced that it could not find any 'components of a nuclear weapon' or 'related nuclear physics studies' in Iran.

Good for the world, good for peace, good for stability, developement, and democracy worldwide. The game will change... It seems the american empire is slipping and falling . Militarily and financially ruined, nobody will fear american warmongers of the Bush or Clinton categories anymore. Without the grave american terrorist threat, the people of the world will unite in civility and make zionism and colonialism a thing of the past.

Good for democracy by protecting theocracy? Slight contradiction some would argue...

This has been discussed already in several other threads.
