Good.

It's rare that I find Israel's actions defensible, but this is lunacy on Russia's part.

They attacked the US, so I wouldn't put it past them.
Of course Russia won't give them $$$billions afterwards.

In any case, an open confrontation between Israel and Russia would seem to be months away. Russian military analysts say it would take at least one year for Syrian crews to learn how to operate the S-300s, and the training will involve a live drill with real ammunition at a Russian shooting range. There has been no evidence that any such training has begun.

So not really as scary...

This is actually quite interesting and demonstrates how low the Russians have fallen. Israel wouldn't have dreamed of making such a threat, much less follow-up on it, against the Soviet Union.

This is misleading, Israel is threatening to destroy the weapons after they're delivered. They aren't going to destroy the shipment en route, but after Syria has taken possession.

Nobody is threatening Russia. Nobody has threatened Russia. Nobody will threaten Russia.   

Not after Georgia.

Russian crews could operate them, as they have done in the past in foreign nations.  Quite a few Russians have ended up dead this way in the past....

I've always been curious about the USS Liberty, as to why would Israel want to sink her?  Try to start an american incursion into Israeli enemies?  and why didn't we do anything about it?

Of course it is. How often does the phrase "It's just business" follow an acknowledgement that whatever is about to happen is likely to end extremely poorly for someone?

Israel didn't. Their genius aviators identified it as an Egyptian resupply ship. The USS America, iirc, had planes in the air and they were directed to intervene, but the admiral called them back because they were armed with nukes and if the country attacking was the Soviets, he didn't want to start a nuclear war. By the time they got properly armed aircraft up, it was all over. Since it was an accident, that's why we didn't "do" something about it.

It's actually because its an easy way to project our weapons and power without you know being us and having that culpability thing on our hands.

I mean, do you honestly really think that Isreal knew where those weapons shipments were and where they were going without the billions of dollars of equipment we have in the sky feeding them information?

Some bored writer stirring the pot.

The S-300 family isn't a new system at all, has been widely exported, and thus is quite well known to the west.  Heck, Greece even operates the system.  Since Greece and Israel have very close military ties and I suspect we've (US) got quite a few working samples ourselves.  There's no doubt the IAF would be well prepared in the jamming and countermeasures department.

Nobody's sinking a freighter or shooting down transports.  All they'll do is get fully up to speed while the system's being deployed and then wipe the sites off the map after the Russians leave.

Only read the headline but as someone that just watched dr. Strangelove I support this indirect and unnecessary war with Russia, the christians in the states and the right wing in israel have been looking forward to this for years.

Soviet Union suffers worst wheat harvest in 55 years... Labor and food riots in Poland. Soviet troops invade... Cuba and Nicaragua reach troop strength goals of 500,000. El Salvador and Honduras fall... Greens Party gains control of West German Parliament. Demands withdrawal of nuclear weapons from European soil... Mexico plunged into revolution... NATO dissolves. United States stands alone.

Come on don't be a sheep.  Hitting and then not sinking the ship was all part of Israel's master plan.

Especially since we sell them missiles capable of striking anywhere in the country from their own air space.
