Russia to Deliver 800 Supersonic Anti Ship Cruise Missiles to Syria
http://www.india-defence.com/reports-4537 ^

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.

These are advanced cruise missiles that can be (and have been) modified for more than just "anti ship" capabilities. These will definitely increase Syrian offensive capability.

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.

“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%.

Its about the Syrian Port, as well as the Ukrainian Port. The pipelines from central asia terminating at the Black Sea and/or Mediterranean.

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.

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.

Oh pleas,e the Russians are not orchestrating the Islamic Jihad... We are the idiots who trained the Mujahadeen, Al Quaida and the Taliban just to name a few.

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.........

In 1984 a Russian defector named Anatoliy Golitsyn wrote of the period following the collapse of communism. He warned of a renewed attack on the West, engineered by KGB strategists. He said that this attack also had an economic dimension. In his 1984 book, New Lies for Old, he wrote:

“Liberalization in Eastern Europe on the scale suggested could have a social and political impact on the United States itself, especially if it coincided with a severe economic depression.”

The communist strategists have long been looking for such an opportunity. According to Golitsyn, the communist tracks Western economic developments. They watch for developing weaknesses.

There was another Russian defector named Jan Sejna, who wrote during this time progressive leaders would be elected in Europe and America, they would move their governments toward socialism.

In his 1982 book, We Will Bury You, he wrote:

“Our relationship with the United States would be the vital element in this phase. By fostering belief in our policy of friendship and co-operation with America, we planned to receive the greatest possible economic and technological help from the West, the same time convince the Capitalist countries that they had no need of military alliances.”

Indoctrinated elected American progressives in government would blindly put trust in both Russia and China.

Jan Sejna also wrote during this time:

“Capitalism would suffer an economic crisis that would bring Europe to its knees and stimulate the influence of progressive forces in European governments. They believe America would be withdrawing its commitments to help former allies”.

Once America had abandoned the defense of Europe, Russia would be convincing the Europeans that the US was pursuing a self-interested policy and even conspiring actively against them; thus we would increase Americas isolation.

The Progressives in America lower defenses and offer access to US military secrets and provide strategic transparency. They remove nuclear deterrents and defund strategic facets of the US military to lead the world in a socialist Utopian world peace.

Once Americas defenses are compromised and trades US sovereignty for world citizenship, she becomes consumed with internal transformational social problems.

Russia and China join forces with their allies to unite in “One Clenched Fist” to dismember America and take her seat as the world leaders and become the new multi-polar world powers.

If there is no Syria to accept delivery of the missiles, then there will be no delivery of the missiles.
