    Russia Selling Iran Tor Missiles...

    Stardate 4968.4

    Apparently, Russia has struck a deal with Iran to sell up to 30 Tor-M1 surface to air missiles as well as other weapons. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov says this will not affect the balance of power in the region...

    In light of the US strategy they have used in the past, that is the heavy air campaigns, I wonder at what sort of political game Russia is playing. I suspect this goes a little deeper than first meets the eye. In light of this, the Israelis who feel threatened by just about everyone it seems, are considering air strikes against the iranian nuclear installations similar to the strikes in 1981 against Iraq. Russia has also offered to enrich uranium for the Iranian civilian nuclear energy program as a safeguard against Iran using enrichment for weapons...

    I understand that, but I imagine countries like Israel and the US will demand proof that this enriched uranium is in fact used for civilian programs...
