Lightbulb The S-300 missile system in Syria - two posts discussing the crisis

A crisis has developed since mid-September over the transfer of the S-300 air defence system to Syria by Russia.

I have written two blog posts on the subject, the first of which discusses just what the Russians delivered to Syria, while the second emphasises the core problem - Russia's ever closer embrace of rogue states.

I thought the problem was Israel attacking Syria's strategic assets ..........
You say the S300's are located in a dangerous area - dangerous to who?
"Axis of Evil" - a bit dramatic, don't you think? Those in the middle-east would have the same label for the western powers continually bringing rebellions and war to their countries ........
And no, I am not a sympathiser. I just don't believe all the BS they tell us.

Re: The S-300 missile system in Syria - two posts discussing the crisis

Somehow I detect strong smell of double-standards. For example, how come Iran and Syria are "rogue states" (rogue according to whom?) but Saudi-Arabia is not? I am not aware that Iranians or Syrians have used their foreign embassies as slaughterhouses for unpleasant journalists, for example. Or the hard fact that Syria under Bashar al-Assad has been the most Christian-friendly Arab nation in the area by far. Even Iran is better for its Christian minority than Saudi-Arabia. In fact, Saudis could handle the Middle Eastern asylum tourist problem on its own, yet nobody seems to ask that why Saudis are not welcoming their Islamic brothers in. Instead, the same people who are so keen to point out "rogue states" are perfectly happy to see e.g. England turning into a society in which basic democrartic rights like freedom of speech are supressed to appease certain throat-cutting minorities.

Guys

this is about postwar missile systems not Middle East politics.

Keep it focused.

I thought we were discussing the second blog Dan directed our attention to, headed by the attached, that ends with -
"the critical issue at hand is not the S-300, but rather Russia's growing alliance with the rogue regimes of Iran and Syria"
