Iran gets delivery of S-300 parts

At Pajamas Media, a former CIA agent who infiltrated Iran's Revolutionary Guards, writing under a pseudonym, reports that Russia has started delivering parts for the S-300 air defense system (pictured) to Iran. The Iranians are already trained to operate the S-300 (Hat Tip: Powerline).
The U.S. administration’s failure to serve notice to Russia after its delivery of the TOR M-1 air defense system earlier this year to Iran has emboldened Russia to disregard the international community’s will in stopping Iran from its pursuit of building a nuclear bomb. The mullahs who rule over Iran will soon have the means to protect their nuclear sites against any possible attacks by Israel or the United States. Revolutionary Guards personnel were sent to Russia to train on the S-300 system, so when the missile system was delivered to Iran, the Guards personnel were ready for its deployment.


When I worked as a spy for the CIA in the Revolutionary Guards, I reported on Moscow’s cooperation with the mullahs in establishing their intelligence infrastructure and providing military help in the mullahs’ confrontation with the West. The Russians and the mullahs share one common goal: the end of U.S. superiority and influence in the Middle East and the world. Therefore, any collaboration between the two that undermines the U.S. and the West both financially and militarily is seen as a legitimate act, and it is with this in mind that Russia will back Iran in its pursuit of nuclear arms to destabilize the balance of power in the Middle East; embolden Hezbollah, Hamas, and Syria; and bring fear among U.S. allies in the Persian Gulf.
At Powerline, John doesn't really expect the Hopenchange administration to do anything about this:
President Obama says his policies will represent a break with "business as usual." Do you think that means he intends to get serious about Iran's nuclear program? No, I don't think so, either.
Well, I sure hope no one expects Israel to do anything about this either - at least for the next three weeks. We have elections here on February 10 (and then it will take a while to get a new government together), and all of you should hope and pray that we get a government that won't refrain from undertaking an operation in Iran because it would be a confrontation in which 'we all lose.' If we end up with Livni as Prime Minister or Foreign Minister and Barak as Defense Minister, there is very little chance our government will act at all against Iran.

Eventually Russia will learn the hard way, just like they did - too late - with the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact.
