jjorsett: The S-300 is an air defense missile, and it makes it tougher for anyone to "handle it," nukes or not. The next time Obama thinks about attacking Syria, if these are in place we might lose some aircraft, and more importantly, pilots.


How dare a sovereign nation resist a US invasion Freedom VisitTM!   It'd be likeif the Poles had had the gall to oppose Germany in 1939.

jjorsett: Well how's the Jerusalem Post and International Business Times?


That's fine as long as it's not THIS SOURCE, which should be completely avoided except by right wing nutjob idiots who can't discern a valid source of information and think that BECAUSE something isn't reported in the "mainstream" media, it is automatically true, which is a great way for ignorable morons to out themselves, so I can ignore the words they fart out of their mouths and move on with my life.

jjorsett: Is it your customary habit to ignore verifiable facts when they're reported by a source that you don't like?


If it's an unreliable source yes.  If it's correct then real news organizations will report it.

Satanic_Hamster: El Pachuco: Now why would they want to do that? The Iranian reason why, not the strawman why we see in US media. Why would Iran do that?

Because they don't like Israel?

Wait, are you actually trying to imply that Iran DOESN'T arm terrorist groups?


[eyeroll]

Iran bankrolls terrorists (or "insurgents") for the same reason the US does. And for the same reason we supported fascist thugs in the 70's and 80's so long as they professed themselves to be anti-Communist. One ALWAYS supports one's allies under the somewhat dubious theory of "the enemy of my enemy is my friend." (Which is usually wrong; the enemy of your enemy is usually just not your enemy yet, at least not until your money runs out; but have no thought for the morrow)

Yes, Iran hates Israel. Yes, they'd be happy if Israel were to suddenly vanish. But Iran has a great deal to lose if the balance of power were to shift in the Middle East, and nothing at all to gain with an open war with Israel, mostly because, being the focus of Shi'a Islam, they are surrounded quite literally by Sunni Muslims who mostly  hate them. If Israel--the focus of Muslim hate in the region--were to disappear, the next logical target would be Iran, as the most visible stronghold of Shi'ite Muslims.

But of course, since Americans think "all them Mooslimbs are the same" and can't fathom the genuine tribal hatreds going on in Islam, the idea that, for instance, the only thing keeping Pakistan and Iraq from uniting against Iran is their mutual hatred of Israel is just too much to parse.

Nemo's Brother: Obama also said Detroit could be saved. Romney said it had to go through bankruptcy


That's quite the disingenuous argument, since neither of them were talking about the government of the city of Detroit and were instead talking about the automotive companies that operate nearby.

despite being out of touch with the common welfare mom.

Oh, never mind

The US always argues that air defense and missle defense are purely passive and pose no threat to other countries.

xkillyourfacex: Russia is so much better than us. and it gives defense systems to the Legitimate Governing Dicktatorships that really  need it most. I mean Iran... they try so hard to give their people food, water, health, education, liberties, forced abortions, rape, censorship, torture, murder... you know, the basics that Bush won't give people!! I mean Obama who is now President, but Bush is the one behind it all. Obama has to appear on The Daily Show, how can he possibly have time to run our country, idiots? You can tell Bush never had to spend more than three hours in warddrobe. Who does this jerk think he is?? Anyways, Iran hates Republicans and wants to kill all those morans who goto church on sunday mornings (JUDGING US ALL THE WHILE! THEY JUDGING US!) and that is alright with me, so Iran is warranted to do whatever it wants to do.Go hitler!


Someone shove a wallet in his mouth before he swallows his own tongue!
