If the Israelis want to threaten the Russians, that's their business.
They will not have the support of the American people, but only our government who they have brought and paid for.
we have 16 ohio class that are armed with SLBM's (other two are secret ops supporters more and re armed with cruise missiles instead
4 × 21 in (53 cm) Mark 48 torpedo tubes (midships) SSBN-726 to SSBN-733 from construction to refueling 24 × Trident I C4 SLBM with up to 8 MIRVed 100 ktTNT W76 nuclear warheads each, range 4,000 nmi (7,400 km; 4,600 mi)

like usual the russians are more threating by nature of them having mirved warheads so id have to say that the usa still maintains naval nuclear dominance least for the foreseeable future and curent time
16 (Project 955), 20 (955А Borei II) × RSM-56 Bulava SLBMs with 6 MIRVed warheads 6 × 533 mm torpedo tubes RPK-2 Viyuga cruise missiles

Russia will drop the missles off get paid and most likely call up Israel and give them the location so they can destroy them. For Russia its win win. They get paid and they also get to keep close ties with Israel and that military tech they need so badly from them. Syria gets screwed of course but a dying regime just a chance to milk it dry before it crashes.
Syria's government joined its ally Russia in condemning the EU decision as an "obstruction" to peace efforts, while accusing the bloc of supporting and encouraging "terrorists".
The US, however, said it supported the EU move as a show of "full support" for the rebels, despite its own refusal to provide arms it fears will end up in what it believes to be extremist hands in Syria.
The lifting of the embargo "sends a message to the Assad regime that support for the opposition is only going to increase", Patrick Ventrell, US state department spokesman, said.
"But if, by misfortune, they arrive in Syria, we will know what to do."
Syrian President Bashar Assad told Hezbolla's television network Al-Manar on Thursday that his country has already received the first shipment of S-300 anti-aircraft missiles from Russia.
