This should make all the people that are cheering Putin’s besting of zero think again.
I’d imagine its that natural gas pipeline thru Syria expected to be completed in 2016. It all boils down to oil/gas/money in the end.
Regardless, this country has shipped billions/trillions of weapons to a multitude allies as Foreign Sales for our MIC...what is wrong with Russian doing the same thing trying to cement relationships and make some cash for its weapons builders?
Wow. Putin just told Bammy to sit down and let the adults figure it out, and is now flaunting it.
“the Kommersant business daily reported Wednesday.”
Can they read Putin’s mind?
There is a lot of propaganda flying around and it’s all about attacking Syria and building the natural gas pipeline.
maybe because iran's shia don't threaten russia (its the sunni's, our buddies) and the weapons are defensive.
So shooting down Santa Claus wasn’t enough?
Trying to give competition to Obama?
We Americans would be better off if we asked those questions about our own president before we start asking them about an other.
I guess Putty figures he's wearing the big boy pants in the region now and can do what he likes.
Wonder how he got that idea?
Couldn't be that he's sized-up puny pathetic Bathhouse Barry, kicked some sand in his face and found him wanting?
The best SAMs in the world won’t do much against an enemy that would use stand-off weapons well out of range of air defense. And both the United States and Israel are experienced at knocking out air defense radar, thus rendering SAMs useless. But putting all of Syria’s defense eggs in the S-300 basket is Bashar’s only hope.
In 2012 Obama told Putin there would be more flexibility after the election.
KGB Putin is determined to enable the Ayatollah to get a nuclear bomb to wipe Israel off the map.
Putin still wants revenge for how the USA destroyed the EVIL EMPIRE Putin dedicated his life to.
