Iran Russia security cooperation

The Jewish lobby in Russia is still quite powerful. There are between 500,000--1,000,000 Jews in Russia, unofficially. It is they who prevented the sale of the old S-300 system to Iran. 5 S-300 systems with 40 actual missiles......I mean what is that going to do for Iran's air defense?

But now the Iranian civilian agreement has been reached....so what does the old Jew do in Moscow? Delay the delivery of the 5 old compromised by Israel S-300 systems into 2016....or maybe 2017?

Iran paid $800 for these old out of date junks, maybe its true value is $100 million?

Iran still needs fighters jets to replenish its old airforce of 350 jet fighters. The Su-30 is a good model to buy, but bad faith has crept in with the Russians, in relation to certain arms purchases.  And for the Jews in Moscow, the whole world has either brought, or is considering buying one or more of its various models.

As has been explained before since 2005, the fading American empire should expend itself else where before it has a go at Russia directly.

Russia Should Hurry Up Delivery of Air Defense Missiles to Iran

  • And remove the stain of failing to honor the contract with Iran
  • It is the case a UN Security Council resolution prevented the delivery, but it was within the power of Russia to prevent UNSC from doing so
  • With saber rattling in US Congress Iran needs a deterrent
By the Saker blog and Russia Insider


It is often forgotten that what happened to Russia with the French Mistrals is very much a case of bad Karma coming back: just as Russia had already paid France for the Mistrals, so had Iran already paid Russia for the S-300 SAMs. Both Russia and France reneged after the contracts were signed and finalized.
.
And just as France’s reputation will suffer from the Mistral fiasco, the Russian reputation will suffer from the S-300 fiasco. There might be those who will say that Russia was only following UNSC Resolutions, but to them I will reply that Russia made a huge mistake by allowing such Resolutions to be adopted and, furthermore, that the UNSC Resolution did (not?) cover systems such as the S-300. The decision to renege on the Iranian contract was a unilateral Russian decision.
.

Everybody in the Kremlin is aware of that and this is why Lavrov and his counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif are likely to discuss this issue during their meeting today. I sure hope that they finally come to an agreement.

First, Russia needs to remove that shameful stain on her reputation as a reliable partner.  There is no way the Iranians are going to forget what Russia did and nor should they. True, this was a (Jew-Atlantist) Medvedev decision, and the Iranians understand that, but still – the Kremlin needs to prove that times have changed and, even more so, that Russia has changed.
.

Second, with all the threats coming out of Congress, Iran critically needs the Russian SAMs. Sure, the Iranians claim that they have developed a similar system (with Russian aid according to rumours), but the Iranian systems are untested and it is unclear how many of those they can produce. Iran is a very big country with a lot of potentially lucrative targets for the USAF and USN to strike in saturation attacks. Thus the quantity of high-end with overlapping engagement ranges is crucial to deter such an attack.
.

Third, now is the time for Russia to engage in some good PR and presenting a more trustworthy face to Iran. The lifting of sanctions on Iran presents fantastic business opportunities for Russian companies which all will need to have this unpalatable and, frankly, embarrassing episode be put into the past.
.

Finally, I will note that the S-300 are getting old and that both the US and Israel have gotten their hands on these systems which have no more secrets for them.
.
Russia should either sell Iran upgraded S-300s or jump the gap and sell them the new S-400s.  Not only would that make military sense, but it would be a very welcome gesture of apology from Russia to Iran – a tangible sign that a new era of cooperation as begun.
