Predictably, the criminal regimes of Washington and Tel-Aviv are pretty pissed off about it. Good, their annoyance shows that the S-300 will be a major obstacle in the way of the nefarious US-Israeli-NATO plans for the Middle East and Russia, which is a good thing. Ian]

Netanyahu Warned Putin: S-300 Air Defense System in Irresponsible Hands Will Endanger Region

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu discussed with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday the deployment of the Russian S-300 anti-aircraft missile system in Syria.

The Prime Minister’s Office said Netanyahu told the Russian president that putting advanced weapons systems in irresponsible hands would increase dangers in the region. Netanyahu added that Israel will continue to protect its interests.

He also reiterated Israel’s position that Syria was responsible for the downing of a Russian military plane last week, while Iran also bore responsibility as it was destabilizing the area.

The Russian Embassy in Israel wrote in a tweet that Putin had emphasized to Netnayahu that Russia’s decision to strengthen Syria’s air defenses was in compliance with the “current situation” and was “aimed at eliminating any potential threat ot life of Russian servicemen.”

Putin told Netanyahu that Russia’s actions were aimed at protecting its military, according to the Kremlin statement. Also Monday, U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton said that Russian plans to supply Syria with the missile system would be a “significant escalation” by Moscow and hopes it will reconsider.

Russia announced on Monday it will supply the surface-to-air missile system to Syria in two weeks against strong Israeli objections, a week after Moscow blamed Israel for indirectly causing the downing of a Russian military plane in Syria.

Russian newspaper Kommersant quoted a senior official in the Russian defense ministry, who posited that the deployment of S-300 in Syria would severely hamstring the Israel Air Force.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Russia’s decision to supply Syria with the S-300 system is aimed at increasing safety of Russian military. When asked about relations with Israel, Peskov said the decision was not directed at any third country.

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said on Sunday that Russia is now going to go ahead with the shipment because “the situation has changed, and it’s not our fault.” He also said that Russia would start to electronically jam aircraft flying in to attack targets in Syria. “We are convinced that these measures will calm down some hotheads and keep them from careless actions which pose a threat to our troops,” Shoigu said.

  1. For some reason,you ,Johnny Americans, hadn’t stood up to Israel ( tell me ,for how many centuries by now ?) in spite of Israel’s /Zionists not only milking US, but killing Americans.
    What makes you “embarrassed for Putin.” ?
    Is not Putin (Russia ) the only leader that has found the courage to stand up against the most evil Rothschild Zionist clan that resides in your country ,in your government?
    What you , Americans,have done to liberate and protect your country ? Nothing !

  2. I doubt Satanyahoo takes any more business trips. He is tripping, all right, but just not going anywhere. I think he’s on house arrest. He was trying to leave last week. Which is what any leader of a “nation” does . . . they leave. {rolling eyes}

  3. Probable guess will be more “terrorist attacks” throughout US, Europe, Russia, blamed on more instability created by “rogue Syrian and Iraqi shia elements”. What can Israel do better than Rabin’s Oslo II is beyond any normal creature comprehension. Just imagine an Israeli jet landing throughout Maghreb with all state honors and you get the picture. Sinai and Syria are done and blocked, where will the rabid country want to spread now?How many more wars for Israel?

  4. Yea! Hurray! for Russia. but this time stick to your guns and do it.
    France hasn’t had an independent thought since before their revolution.

    1. Does he want a house to come home to? I think the tried to fly him out last week. Didn’t get too far.
      Dogs usually do much better when they’re on a short leash.

      Who ordered the Rabin hit??

  5. Send an S400 next airborne business trip Bibi takes, take down all his right hand minions in one shot as well.

    1. France announced the sanctions against Russia and Syria for “using chemistry”. Russia helped Syria to get rid of the chemical weapons. Using it now is total nonsence. And now the sanctions vs those who fight against terrorism. French vassals suck..

    2. As you can see logic has no place in US statements. They do it as they know the average Westerner would not notice the contradictions in Bolton’s statement.
