Chavez, Ahmadinejad, Chavez, Ahmadinejad, Chavez, Ahmadinejad, which scum to choose for customers

Jerusalem Post Israel is looking into reports that Russia plans to sell 250 advanced long-range Sukhoi-30 fighter jets to Iran in an unprecedented billion-dollar deal.

According to reports, in addition to the fighter jets, Teheran also plans to purchase a number of aerial fuel tankers that are compatible with the Sukhoi and capable of extending its range by thousands of kilometers. Defense officials said the Sukhoi sale would grant Iran long-range offensive capabilities.

Government officials voiced concern over the reports. They said Russia could be trying to compete with the United States, which announced over the weekend a billion-dollar arms sale to Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states.

I have held forth on this BEFORE .This is the Russians selling a 10 year later than F-15 design with LONG range. Now, while we are selling Jdams to the Al Saud and Al Sheikh's, and promising to maintain ISrael's edge simultaneously (F-22's, even I don't know how I feel about that yet?), the Russkies are selling long range 1st line fighters with stirke capability to the Iranians? Hey why not sell them strategic world range tankers as well?

Hey why not just bring the jewish peoples to Fargo after all and make it a sheet of glass from Morocco to the Chinese border. I mean, why wait? The outcome is OBVIOUS today, as obvious as the results of the treaties with the Islamic Emirates of Waziristan.

Modern air combat depends on being able to think, and that is something that is just not taught under Adminijihad and the Ayatollahs.

Besides, Iran and Saudi Arabia have no love lost between them, and Saudi Arabia is buying more advanced jets from us. They'll square off against each other before they'll square off against Israel.

Israel will come out on top in this one; this will be a reason for us to sell advanced fighters to Israel, and for foreign aid to pay for it.

The real loser will be US, as Israel passes advanced technology to their buddy in the Islamic world, Turkey, who isn't as much of a friend as Israel (or the US) seems to think.
