News on the Iran/Russia front

It’s always our intent for this blog to comment on the news and to critique NCIS shows. Since tonight’s episode “Check” is a rerun that first ran on January 6th of this year and the critique is available in the archives of our blog, we want comment on some recent disturbing news.

The April 22, 2015 issue of the Jerusalem Post reported that, “Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Russian President Vladimir Putin that the sale of S-300 missile systems to Iran would only strengthen its aggressive behavior and undermine the Middle East.
The two leaders spoke by telephone on Tuesday, just one day after Russia ended its voluntary five-year ban on the delivery of the system, which would help strengthen Iran against a military attack.
Russia said that in light of the framework agreement between Iran and the six world powers to curb Tehran’s nuclear program, the ban was no longer necessary. Iran could receive the S-300 by the end of the year.”

Many experts believe the S-300 defensive missile system will complicate Israel’s efforts to destroy Iran’s nuclear weapon development.

Those of you who have read our fifth novel “Redeeming Liberty”, which released in 2011, will remember that CIA Agent Bo Rider had turned Russian Colonel Yuri Egorov to provide Bo with information about Russia’s sale of missiles. In that thriller, Bo discovered Russia was about to arm Iran with the S-300 missile system.

    Always thought the S-300 was outdated with newer SAMs.

      Jie Sheng is so correct. Like the U.S., Russia will never sell it’s best and most modern/accurate missile systems, to friendly nations for fear that they could soon become an enemy, then use the system against Russia.
