"well, now Israel will have to destroy the missile batteries as soon as they arrive in Iran." - gregg bowman The Iranians have not forgotten their years long 'yom kippur war' in the 1980s. They tend to not leave mobile systems as sitting ducks. They tend to move them regularly and make the problem of planning a preemptive strike difficult. The Iranians were made fanatics about self-sufficiency during the Gulf War where it was them against the world's chosen champion - Saddam Hussein and Iraq. They are now manufacturing IHAWK systems. Old, true, but want to guess what OTHER middle eastern nations have IHAWKs? Iran was supposed to be a pushover in the past, and wasn't. I wouldn't bet on it being a pushover today. I think you are wrong about the Russians gregg. They emphatically do not want Iran a nuclear weapons power. Russia could have delivered S-300PMU1 systems the day after the contract was signed. The 'deal' has been one endless frustration for Iran for years.
