In a report titled "Meeting the Challenge: U.S. Policy Toward Iranian Nuclear Development," the center suggested that Iran has acquired the system.

Pretty good deal. We gat a target. The Russians get a field test.
A missle system that was developed in 1979.
Hope it works as well as the Syrian S-300 install.
Hope that the Iranians are as bad at running the S-300 as the Syrians.
Ladies and gents, this is not good news. This is a very good system. Not so sure the Syrians had it (if they did please let me know), but this is a very tough system to defeat. The key question is; so they bought, when is it up and running.
And about two months or less before operational is when Israel will strike if they ever will. The hammer is cocked, and this is the trigger and timer for Israel’s decision to strike.
All of our enemies continue to upgrade their weapons systems. Obambi’s plan? He’ll cut out our e-x-p-e-n-s-i-v-e plans to upgrade.
Well, yeah, they will be real expensive if we get our asses blown into the sky and have to start rebuilding from scratch while scrambling to update our weapons systems and simultaneously fighting an enemy armed with advanced weapons systems better than ours, all the while rebuilding cities and communities destroyed by our enemies.
If they want to buy something we already know how to defeat, fine by me. ;-)
This thing is supposed to be one mean mother of a SAM system.
Wasn’t this the same system Saddam used to defend Baghdad?
Don’t worry, i’m sure our the Iranian ship carrying these AA missles will run into some SEALS in the persian gulf....and I’m not talking the animal.
Russia is foolish to think it can keep a heavily armed Iran under control. It’s kind of like trying to befriend a bottle of nitroglycerin. They don’t seem to realise that those islamic nut jobs in Iran hate them as much as they do us.
