Russia Deploys Warships To Hedge Against Threats Made by the USA and Israel

10 Russian warships deployed in Syria
Excerpt(s): Ten Russian warships have been deployed at the Syrian port of Tartus based on an accord reached by the two sides after the August south Caucases conflict... Rear Admiral Andrei Baranov, head of the Russian Black Sea Fleet's operations directorate, said Friday the Russian engineering crew was at Tartus to expand the capacity of the harbor to host additional fleet vessels... On Sept. 12, nearly one month after the south Caucases conflict broke out, Russia and Syria reached an agreement that would provide Moscow with a long-term base rights at Syrian ports. Military sources reported that Israeli military leaders were stunned at the news of the Russian fleet being deployed near Israeli shores.

Israel Shocked: 10 Russian Warships Appear at Syrian Port at Tartus
Excerpt(s): Russia and Syria inked their deal on September 12, 2008 in Moscow. Syria invaded northern Lebanon and took positions outside of Tripoli. Ten Russian warships showed up in Tartus on September 18 (yesterday). The intent on Russia's part appears to be to dredge the harbor and to explore the use of an additional port at Latakia for even larger warships. Syria's intentions are obvious--they want Lebanon's porous defenses tightened up in advance of any threat against Iran posed by Israel and the United States. The Russian warships are in place to deter Israel, and Dick Cheney, from attacking anyone in the Middle East both now and in the future.

Standing Strongly Against US Efforts To Usurp Their Sovereignty

Iran denied overflight over airspace to Indian Air Force jets
Excerpt(s): Iran did not permit a squadron of Indian warplanes to fly over its airspace to take part in a military exercise in the US, sources say. The Indian Air Force (IAF) had asked Iran to permit its eight Sukhois, two IL-78 aerial refueling tankers and an IL-76 heavy-lift aircraft, along with 91 officers and 156 pilots to fly over its territory to join the Red Flag exercise, which was held at the Nellis air base in Nevada in July... The IAF “initial routing plan through Iran'' went completely haywire after Tehran refused permission to its aircraft to overfly its territory just a few days before they were scheduled to take off from Pune and other airbases on July 7, the Indian sources said. “Iran made it very clear that if you are flying to the US, you cannot fly over our country. This sent the IAF team scrambling to chart out an alternate route and arrange more visas for the entire team,'' said a source..."

Israel: Writing on wall for war on Iran
Excerpt(s): The top Israeli general Moshe Yaalon claimed on Sunday that Israel is threatened by Iran in the same manner the world was once threatened by Adolf Hitler. "Today, we in the West are facing the same situation, the lack of decisiveness towards a threat that is no less severe than that which Hitler posed in 1939," Yaalon told Israeli army radio. Israel considers Iran the prime existential threat to its security after alleged statements by the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that 'Israel should be wiped off the map'. Iran has repeatedly stated that President Ahmadinejad's remarks were grossly mistranslated and taken out of context. In a July press conference after a D8 summit in Kuala Lumpur, President Ahmadinejad said 'Iran has no plans to attack Israel', adding that 'the illegal regime would disintegrate on its own'.

Russia to equip Iran with 'game changer'?
Excerpt(s): Russia plans to equip Iran with advanced antiaircraft defense systems amid reports that Israel will soon acquire advanced smart bombs. Russian arms exporter Rosoboronexport has disclosed that despite US opposition, Moscow intends to empower Iran by supplying the country additional air defense systems. Tel Aviv and its ally, the United States, have threatened to launch air strikes against Iranian nuclear facilities under the pretext that Tehran, a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), has plans to develop nuclear weapons. This is while the UN nuclear watchdog in its latest report on Iran announced that it could not find any 'components of a nuclear weapon' or 'related nuclear physics studies' in Iran... Iranian military officials have also warned that Iran would not hesitate in taking the necessary measures to protect its sovereignty - including the closure of the Strait of Hormuz - in case the country comes under attack.
