…which is precisely why it’s said the window of opportunity to stop Iran from going nuclear is closing fast, be it for Israel or America leading the charge.
Although it’s not 100% certain, don’t be surprised if war breaks out soon as Israel is forced to fight for its very existence. This is also what the anti-Israel Obama administration would want from a propaganda perspective, as to place all the blame on Israel and present it as the warmonger. Israel is fell for a well-designed trap and is now in a catch-22.
Lawmakers say sale of S-300 is move to stop U.S. strike on Iran
A bipartisan team of lawmakers is warning that Russia’s decision to arm Iran with advanced missile systems will erode America’s ability to launch a military strike against the Islamic Republic’s contested nuclear sites, according to a letter sent Monday to the Obama administration.
Russia announced Monday that it will reverse a years-long ban on arming Iran with the advanced S-300 air defense missile system. The move was condemned by the Obama administration, which had viewed the ban as a sign of its successful attempts to rein in Russian proliferation.
Iran says the S-300 system could arrive as soon as later this year.
“Maintaining a credible military threat is a necessary component to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapons capability,” Reps. Peter Roskam (R., Ill.) and Ted Deutch (D., Fla.) wrote on Tuesday to Secretary of State John Kerry, according to a copy of the letter obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
“Allowing the Iranian regime to acquire this advanced system could significantly impact our ability to take military action against Iran, should this become necessary,” the lawmakers said.
In 2010, the Obama administration described the sale of S-300s to Iran as a so-called red line but has declined to explain its stance in light of Monday’s announcement.
