Well it appears Iran will NOT get the S-300 missiles after all. As well as many other weapon systems. Which includes a ban on sales of battle tanks, armored vehicles, large-caliber artillery systems, warplanes, military helicopters, and ships oh my


The article goes on to say...


"This continues to demonstrate how Russia and the United States are cooperating closely on behalf of our mutual interests, and global security,"

President Dmitry Medvedev has ordered a ban on the supply of Russian advanced air defence missile systems to Iran. Moscow shelved the plan saying the missiles fall under the latest UN sanctions on Tehran.

Following the cancelation Iran announced that it will construct a domestic missile defense system similar to the sophisticated Russian anti-aircraft system.

Tehran’s gamble paid off

The more bans on Iran, the more opportunity for Iran to advance in technological arena.

Such a big fail in Western foreign policy, Iran is already selling weapons to anti-USA South American nations through Syria, and sharing "know hows" also. See the link for more info..

Iran is playing catch up.

I seriously doubt whatever they hobble together will be as good as the S-300

Once again, the point is that, it is better to design and create it yourself, then let someone else do it for you, that is lazy, that is why the Arabs haven't advanced, while you see Iran create its first drone
while Iranians universities are pact with students learning different sciences.

Even Nuclear, they have done excessive research on it, and advance.

The Arabs will be left behind again, they will once again become the third world, because they have allowed their resources to be traded for weapons, rather than advancing themselves.

I'm a bit surprised that you haven't yet called the non weapons deal with Iran all part of the "Evil Empires" plans trying to cause another civil war?

Why all the hate on here?

I swear ATS is pro-war.

WAKE UP PEOPLE!

Iran IS NOT our enemy!

Get mad at the people who run the world that YOU live in, not the people who run a country on the other side of the world!

Are Americans so scared of 130lb goat herders 7000 miles away?

Iran can't attack the US, only israel, and they would have attacked by now if they were going to.

REST ASSURED that someone will attack Iran, and NOT the other way around!

Iran will be attacked first, for israel's protection.

Pre-emtive war, an invention of Hitler made popular by israeli politics.

There were some Israelites who were caught in Washington bridge with a van full of explosives, you are right, they are the only ones who have the capability to attack you from the Middle East.

How does this have 5 flags?

Does this really matter to anyone who doesn't push israeli politics?

Is the US welcoming Russia's ban on missile systems to Iran ATS news worthy?

Really?

What do you mean "Iran IS NOT our enemy"? Have you got a mouse in your pocket? Iran sure as hell IS my enemy, and has been for around 30 years or so.

Tell you what, I'll let you pick your own enemies, and I'll pick mine. Iran is and will remain MY enemy until they ditch the mad mullah marauders. Until then, I don't even want to talk, and would be just as happy chucking explosives at them until they glow.

I don't give a tinker's damn what they do in their own country, within the confines of their own borders, these days, but nobody needs to hold their breath, waiting on me to kiss and make up with the mullahs.

Not gonna happen.

Here's a clue: the world didn't start with Israel, and it doesn't revolve around Israel. The sun does not rise from Israels head, or set in Israel's behind. Israel has nary a thing to do with my animosity towards Iran.

Israel isn't even on the table here. Iran, and Russian weapons sales (or really the lack thereof) is what's on the table. Why do folks always have to drag a piddlin' little country like Israel into the mess anyhow? Can't I be thoroughly pissed off at someone without Israel being forced into the conversation?

Iran sure ain't my personal enemy either.

Iran is a enemy of our political system. It's our politicians and policy makers that hate Iran. We are just ponds who have to fight their battles.

Very soon a few hundred thousand innocent Americans have to arm up because their leaders can't get along with other people. The same goes for the Iranian people, they have to fight their leaders battles as well.

Iran is an enemy of the civilized and modern world as it's a state having its constitution based on the quaran's who wants to impose their morality all over the world, therefore it is indeed an enemy.

The ability to produce your own UAVs isn't that special, Serbia, Malaysia, Bulgaria etc have all done this but it doesn't mean that it is all cutting-edge stuff. That wasn't Iran's first drone though and Iranian tech is actually pretty good, in the long term yes it's much better to produce your own stuff but I believe Iran needs that equipment in the short term.

Preemtive war is actually are very sound policy in some cases. Hitler called it preemtive for other reasons...it wasnt preemtive just a power grab in his case. In Hitlers case the "blitz" would be a better word for it. We can see now in hind sight that it would have been better for France and Poland to preempt Germany.

Yup, Iran is our enemy. Anyone expounding the destruction of a legitimate state and calling for the punishment any state that supports the first is in fact an enemy of the global village. Yup, Iran is doing that on a regular bases. It actually called for the annihilation of Israel. But I guess that's ok because Israel is bad right? Not a good enough reason in my books.

I know, your going to say that the US has been doing the same thing, but you'd be wrong. In Irak they have left after ousting a dictator who was killing (gassing) his own people (I've seen the proof). In Afghanistan they have every intention of leaving once the Al-Qa'ida supporters in the Taliban are rousted from the land. None of the NATO countries there have any designs on staying and usurping an elected Afghan government after their job is done.
