Posted on 09/10/2013 5:33:26 AM PDT by Fennie
Russia has transferred several S-300 missile batteries into Syria, Kuwaiti newspaper Al Rai reported Tuesday. The transfers took place despite statements by Russian officials, including Russian President Vladimir Putin, that Russia would not provide Syria with the advanced anti-aircraft system.
Al Rai claimed that Syria has accelerated the rate at which it ships arms into Syria since the current crisis between Russia and the US began, when chemical weapons were allegedly used to kill over 1,000 civilians, on August 21.
The information was picked up by Voice of Israel public radio, which added that Russian ships are due to offload more military aid in the next few days.

I suppose this will make the pro-Putin Freepers happy. As for me, it’s just more evidence that the man has and is stoking the fires in Syria and in the Middle East. He also profits from helping Iran, but hey, at least he’s not Obama.
If there is one solid observation coming of this mid-east fiasco, its that virtually every other leader in the world has managed to out think, out maneuver, and totally disgrace the low IQ piece of excrement currently drawing flies in the White House. He’s so dumb even other Muslims can out do him.
And what’s even more scary is that that “thing” is what liberals consider to be their best.
With no military background, but from what I picked-up here on FR about the S-300, a full-on S-300 system wouldn’t bode well for any planes or missiles in Syrian airspace.
and we sent 400 MANPADs...
How many abortions in the USA last year?
Their best hell! They consider him their god. Even those who claim to be Christians. If you don’t believe it, say something they to be a criticism of Obama and watch their reaction. When I did that, the guy would not have been as upset [mad] if I had taken the Lord’s name in vain.
It will also sadden the pro al-qeada types who want to get us involved as the al-qeada air force.
When you have one world leader and a community organizer going at eachother this is what you get. Obama knows nothing about foreign policy and he was backed into a corner and made to look like the loudmouthed idiot he is. Tip to Obama, if you don’t know what you are talking about,,,SHUT-THE-HE*L-UP!!!
Yep, and I suppose this will make the pro-Saudi Arabia/Al Queda group sad, less money and pilots for another 9-11.
The longer Putin stretches this out, the better Assad defenses become. I think the Ruskies announced how decent their radars were when they picked up that midnight test of two missiles last week. El Dope would have to be suicidal to attack such a well protected and small area. Maybe we have a counter for it, maybe if we do we should not deploy it here and announce it to the Ruskies.
I notice el dope is now talking quaranteen of WMDs and has moved his rhetoric away from punishing Assad for what he did (or may have done). Putin wins another round. If this were a prize fight, Obama would be taking a standing 8 count while his corner is readying the towel toss.
I don’t trust Putin for a minute, but Putin wants to protect Christian areas.
Obama wants to take the side of Muslims who beheading Christians and include some Al Queada elements.
Who’s right and who’s wrong in this conflict?
Obama’s going to want to push the RESET button with Russia again.
You are free to worship Obama to your heart’s content.
S-300 is good but not great, the serious threat is how many ya have.
If you have four missiles closing from four separate launch sites, you're in big trouble.
The S-350 is another matter, but it is not deployed in Syria, only Russia.
I worship God. And God’s name is not Putin and it sure as hell is not Obama. Don’t be a fool.
Judging by the tone of your post, you could fool me.
I’m fine with killing all of the al Qaeda terrorists. Assad came late to that fight. He was for them when they were killing Americans in Iraq. They’ve turned on him, so now he’s against them. I don’t have to support Assad to be anti-al Qaeda.
Obama: But Vlad, that was YOUR idea!
Putin: Nyet, nyet Braki, you were the genius who avoided WWIII...
Obama: (Swoon*) Oh Vlad, gosh your a darn nice guy.
Putin: (To an aid, quietly) Tell Assad the S-300’s are in the Latakiya port on our vessels and ready for transfer.
Obama: What? What's that Vlad? Did I hear S-300s? Missiles?
Putin: Nyet Baraki, I just told him that we are loading 300 Russian personnel on our ships to get out of here ASAP.
Obama: Vlad, come on, that was just a ploy, you know me, I wouldn't attack anybody...
Putin: I know Baraki, I know. Look, I have to make a few phone calls, I regret to leave you for now but I must - finish your hot cocoa...
Obama: Yes, I almost forgot, the hot cocoa, mmmmmm, slurp, mmmm...reset, reset, reset...
Putin (To aid, in Russian) Don't forget to remove the bugs from under the table after this jerk leaves the cafe.
We have no business getting involved at all.
Putin protects a type of Christianity that must be subservient to him. What Orthodox Christian leader in Russia opposes Putin or the Russian governments support for abortion? They cannot. Putin’s using Christianity; he’s not following it. And before you accuse me of supporting Obama, I’ll say the truth about him. He used Christianity and the weird Reverend Wright race-based church to fool foolish Christians. Putin and Obama have a lot more in common than many people want to admit.
Judging by the tone of your post, I’d guess you worship Putin. Just like Liberals won’t tolerate criticism of Obama, you apparently believe it’s wrong to criticize Putin. Putin puts dissident in prison for no good reason and assassinates political opponents. He supports and funds abortion.
If this were a prize fight, Obama would be in the showers with his bathhouse BFF/muzzies, and not in the ring.
Most have no illusion of who Putnin is, but we are sick and tired of Obama, and Clinton before him, getting away with any kind of illegal activity with absolutely no impunity because of the corrupt MSM. The same corrupt MSM that went after Bush with a vengeance each and every day he was in public office.
So yeah, the enemy of my enemy is my friend, however temporary and restrained that may be.
We’re not exactly pro-Putin here at FR. We know full well he is a KGB thug who regrets the fall of the USSR. He is also a Russian nationalist which is bad news for the West (Russians are proudly non-Western).
But, “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” applies here. In 2016 Hillary, as a member of the same party as Obama, will have to run with, not against, her predecessor’s record. That’s already going to be a profoundly difficult task.
Putin is about to hand Obama his @ss over Syria. Bottom line. Let Hillary take that and run with it.
Then too, Putin is pro-Christian and anti-fag, so he can’t be all bad.
its not a worship of putin, but an admiration for a what a real leader looks like. i don’t trust or worship putin. but i do admire his leadership. and some of his values like true anti muslim terrorism, anti gay propaghanda , etc.
You know he’s a KGB thug. I’m not sure all of the posters do. I think it’s like praising Old Joe Stalin because he’s fighting Hitler. I won’t pretend either Putin or Obama is a Christian or a Conservative. If that upsets some, then fine.
Side note: the child like emperor pwince brak armed al-qeada via a fast & furious style gun running scheme via Libya.
He has been planning to get us involved in support of al-qeada no matter what since before Benghazi.
Wanting to see the child like emperor take a bruising has little to do with Assad or Putin.
We have no business being involved.
If this were a prize fight, Obama would be on the side line flinching.
Obama may do something really stupid in Syria where Russian AA missiles are waiting for our aircraft, the lives of whose crews concern Obama not in the slightest.
If he does, Putin will administer serious beatdown on the Chicago manchild.
Well, the S300 systems would be the first to be destroyed starting with their radar support input.
There would be a lot of expensive Russian junk lying about, even if the Syrians had the manpower & infrastructure to quickly setup additional systems. -which I doubt
And the only person Brak has to blame is himself and his big flapping mouth.
But the press assured us he was oh so smert!
You are correct. There is a reason why the main radar is nicknamed Tomb Stone.
Putin is a sly leader and is dangerous...but like a stopped clock he is right on this one. Unfortunately, the fallout will be that the Russkies will be emboldened, and that does not bode well...esp. for eastern Europe. I think the freepers who admire him do so because he stands up to the fags and goatshaggers...but he will be a stronger tyrant thanks to Barry O’Carter.
I don't think that word means what you seem to think it means.
I don’t think anybody is actually pro Putin here, it’s more like, watching two enemies of the United States, one outside and one inside, go at it. The bigger threat is the enemy within, Obama. Watching him be humiliated by Putin and seeing his support in the MSM and liberal circles crumble can only be a good thing. Unfortunately though, Obama’s ineptitude and weakness puts us all in peril. Therefore what we are actually rooting for is the destruction of the Obama regime... and if that happens at the hands of the outside enemy, well, that’s Ok... To hell with Obama’s America... God save the Constitutional Republic!!
To me the most astounding thing is that "The One" and his supporters are so damned stupid that they not only don't realize this, but can't even see it when it is pointed out to them.
Serbs used an SA-3 to shootdown an F-117. Overconfidence in an SA-300 environment is a bad bad idea.
Which makes the game of compare and contrast with the current US administration somewhat unfair.
This is the type of guy we are letting broker a “peace deal” with Syria? The whole thing about turning over their WMD’s is a stall to allow them more time to protect and defend their hardware and personnel. Have to wait 28 days for that concrete to fully harden.
Good point; hadn’t even thought of that scenario.
"You wanna learn the first rule? You'd know if you ever spent a day in your life. You never open your mouth till you know what the shot is. You ----ing child."
I think the S-300 has been glorified by the onslaught of Russian bragging. Not too long ago, Croatia gave us an S-300 after the Balkan Wars so that we may examine it, and develop more appropriate countermeasures to spoof it.
Who is to say that we cannot evade this system? It hasn’t even been tried in battle yet.
With a range of 200 kilometers it also threatens a broad swath of Israeli airspace. If these missiles are now moving into Syria the Israelis will make every attempt to destroy them before they are deployed. The Russians know that will be Israel's reaction so it may be this is a provocation.
