Posted on 09/19/2010 4:56:46 AM PDT by Srirangan
Russia will supply around 72 P-800 Yakhont anti-ship cruise missiles to Syria for mobile coastal defence systems under a deal worth $300 million, ignoring the strong opposition from the US and Israel.
"Damascus is counting on receiving at least two 'Bastion' coastal defence systems. Since each system can include up to 36 Yakhont missiles, it is an order of a significant size," an unnamed defence industry source was quoted as saying by Interfax.

Yeah, them there guys are gettin some missiles, Yakhunt !
I was thinking they could be used against land based targets..like Tel Aviv. Way to go Obama.
catch the prevailing winds right, blow that valley holding all those Chem weapons smuggled in from Saddam and maybe get a little payback to turkey too
To Russia, hatred and war is good business.
Amazingly misleading headline!
The sale is apparently for 72 qty model 800 missiles. It reads like 800 qty missiles.
But hey, who does the Indian media learn from?
It is my belief that the US has developed “better” countermeasures superior to Phalanx against these AS missiles, but these are very formidable weapons and I’m not entirely confident that our countermeasures would be entirely effective against a swarm of these things.
The Yakhont is called the P-800.
“To Russia, hatred and war is good business.”
Indeed it is. In 2008 Russian arms sales made up 17% of international arms sales....ours made up 41%.
Israel need to take out the vehicles delivering these bad boys. Be it train, truck, ship or camel.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the Suez, China's presence in the Indian Ocean and the Arabian Sea and her need for ports like in Burma, Pakistan, and Yemen. In Pipelinistan there would be a north/south pipeline running south from central asia across AfPak to the Pakistan coast as well as a pipeline from Iran across AfPak into China.
Who said we won the Cold War ? We got a commie in the White House , The Russians have got Muslim proxies out to destroy what is left of the USA , and 90% of the goods people buy at the dept. store are made in China !
>> Ezekiel 38, 39<<
Thats what I too. Russia, Syria, Turkey and Iran. They are going to get their butt kicked.
Nations continue to arm up while this administration is in power. Bo will do nothing to stop this, for sure.
Russia’s moving fast, Syria, Iran, China as well. They know this administration is weak and will not do more than rebuke them, if even that. So the push is on to get as much in place during BO’s time in office. Expect to see allot more going on in the next couple years....they have this window while Bo is in office and will continue their push.
That’s a lot of missiles

Many thousands of Russians and Americans have been murdered by Islamofasicts to include 300 small Children and Teachers in their school. (Hence remember 91 as well as 911).
We have more in common with the Russian people than most of those who live in Western Europe. They are a long suffering but courageous people whom Americans have fought beside as allies far longer then the Cold Wars duration.
Saint Reagan forced them to quit but Gorbachev’s Nobel Peace Prize was one of the last well earned. He could have burned the world down rather than break up the Soviet Union.. He did not and we owe him and the Russian Leadership a debt of thanks..
We know darn good and well what would have happened had an Islamofacist been in control of the second largest nuclear arsenal in the world.
We also failed when we had the chance to create a New Marshall plan towards our Cold War adversary.. Truly to help them join fully as members of the Western World.
If American and Russia are to survive as world powers.. Beyond the need to drive out the elitist sphincter muscles in our own government we need to find ways and common ground with the Russian People and the Russian Government.
The West is on fire with the flames of Islamic Jihad and the long term plans for world domination of the Chinese.
It is a foolish man who fights with his cousin while their shared estate is burning down.
The whole Chechnya episode, Venezuela, all of the Hammas/Hezbollah attacks on Israel...........the cold war never ended. Iran, Venezuela and Libya are Russian puppets. The cold war never ended. NOW, Russia wants to BANKRUPT US !!!!!!!! They are using KGB tactis of media manipulation, and resourcing the islamists...........and the LIBERAL SCUMBAGS of our country are co-conspirators. Want to know why we invaded Iraq? To counter Russia’s control of Iran. Want to know why we have always supported Israel (up until the current fraud in the WH).....well, you get the idea.........
