Yahoo! News - Russia to Sell Advanced Missiles to Syria

Yahoo! News - Russia to Sell Advanced Missiles to Syria


(AFP/Itar-Tass/File)

Hot on the heels of other news today of Syria being involved with Iran comes another story. It seems that Russia has come out and said that they will sell Syria advanced missile systems. Syria, and old Cold-War ally of Russia, will be receiving different types of weapons from Russia. One item in particular they are going to be purchasing is Strelets missiles, which are large two stage missiles designed to intercept high altitude targets like strategic bombers and spy planes.

One US diplomat was quoted as saying, "Our bottom line is that they (the Russians) should not be providing any military assistance to Syria since they are a sponsor of terrorism."

So it seems that Russia is trying to regain its control in the middle east that it had back in the Cold War. Just in the news today we can see an alliance forming.

1. Iran and Syria announce a front
2. The nuclear plant thought to be hit with a missile is being built by Russia
3. And now, Russia is supplying Syria with missiles.

Also keep in mind, Putin is an expert judo master...therefore, an underground judo ninja alliance could be in the working.
