Moscow in no rush to supply S-300s to Iran
17-Feb-2009 (2 comments)

Iranian Defense Minister Mostafa Mohammad Najjar arrived in Moscow yesterday to open talks on Russian arms supplies. Tehran is particularly interested in S-300PMU-1 surface-to-air missile systems, and a contract for their delivery was signed long ago. But Russia is not planning as yet to hand these systems to Iran in order not to upset a dialogue that has begun with the new U.S. administration.

Russians excel in many subjects, theoretical as well as applied. Google Russia's contribution to any topic you want and educate yourself. There must be a limit to nonsense one is allowed to write. Besides Hitler and Napoleon learened it the hard way. To respect Russia.

Incredible: Iranian calls Russia backward. haha


Russia is the Dumb player

I have no idea how Russians became so technologically powerful. I think they are the dumbest of politicians, planners, and the most disorganized people I have ever seen anywhere any place.
It is just a puzzle to me how such people can become so powerful. If they were not the way they are, man you don't even know how much Russia could gain. Of course that's to our benefit that they are so dumb.
Never, ever again will I set foot in that country. Chaotic, disorganized, and... I think you got the point.

About this article, I never thought that they would do that. Russians think that they are being smart by playing both side s but what happens is that they lose credibility and countries won't do business with them. Do you think once the US have a good relation with Russia, Iran will ever deal with Russia? NO WAY. But it didn't have to be that way. Dumb from the roots!
I bet if Iranians put their heads together, they can come up with something comparable. Not similar capabilities, but good enough.
