All options including military action open on Iran: Israel



Jerusalem: Israeli Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz said on Thursday that all options including military action were on the table in the face of the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran.

Speaking to public radio as crunch talks on Iran's nuclear programme continued in Switzerland, Steinitz said Israel would seek to counter any threat through diplomacy and intelligence but "if we have no choice we have no choice the military option is on the table."

Asked about possible US objections to Israeli military action, Steinitz pointed to Israel's unilateral attack against the Osirak nuclear reactor in Saddam Hussein's Iraq in 1981.

"This operation was not carried out in agreement with the United States," he said. Steinitz, a close ally of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, said the Israeli leader had left no doubt as to the country's response to nuclear-armed Iran.

"The prime minister has said clearly that Israel will not allow Iran to become a nuclear power," Steinitz said.

Iran to Receive Modernized Version of Russian S-300 Missile Defense Systems




Moscow will deliver modernized versions of the S-300 missile defense systems, Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan told RIA Novosti on Friday.


No Reasons to Keep Embargo on Providing Iran With S-300 Missiles - Putin

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – On April 13, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree lifting the cancellation of the S-300 air defense systems sale, originally put into place following the 2010 UN Security Council embargo on arms deliveries to Tehran.

It should be noted that the Russian side has included some definite improvements to the system that we need to learn from the technical point of view.”


Dehghan said that no additional Russian specialists would be needed since all of the Iranian specialists working with the system had already gone through training.


“The necessary training skills for using this system were held during the previous contract so we don’t need to invite any [Russian] consultants to give instructions on using this system,” he added.

Putin's decision to lift the S-300 sales ban took place two weeks after Tehran and world agreed on a framework for a deal to detail Iran's nuclear program. The framework involves sanctions against Iran, including the arms embargo, being phased out over time. The final deal is expected by July 2015.

On Thursday, the Russian President Putin said that there were no reasons for Moscow to keep the embargo on providing Iran with S-300 missile defense systems, underlining that it is a purely defensive weapon.

The same day, Iran’s Defense Ministry said the S-300 deal could be closed by the end of 2015.

Iran urges united resistance front against US expansionism







Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan (R) meeting with his Russian counterpart Sergey Shoygu in Tehran in January 2015.


The Iranian defense minister has called for the establishment of a united front against the expansionist policies of the United States and its allies, describing it as a necessity.


Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan on Thursday hailed Russia for not trusting the United States, saying Tehran and Moscow should insist on adopting policies to foil security threats facing them.


“We support Russia’s correct understanding at the strategic level that the US government could not be a reliable friend and partner,” said Dehqan in a meeting with Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu.

Dehqan, who was in the Russian capital to attend the fourth Moscow International Security Conference, also hailed Moscow's stance in appreciating the necessity for the establishment of a new global order.

The Russian defense minister, for his part, urged the expansion of ties between Tehran and Moscow, saying constructive relations between the two sides can play an important role in securing regional and global stability

Shoygu touched upon a recent military agreement signed between Iran and Russia, calling it a significant foundation on which the two sides could expand their ties.

The Russian defense chief lashed out at Western governments for imposing sanctions on sovereign states, describing them as tyrannical and against international regulations.


Shoygu further took a swipe at the United States for its unilateral policies across the world and called on all countries to to work together closely to confront and foil Washington’s one-sided moves.


He then urged Russia, China and Iran to hold a joint summit in the near future to coordinate their policies for confronting common threats.


The two sides also agreed to examine all technical issues related to the S-300 air defense missile system in the coming months, so that it could be delivered to Tehran by the end of the current year.

On April 13, 2015 Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a presidential decree, paving the way for the long-overdue delivery of the S-300 missile shield systems to Iran.

I think Russia has a clear interest in this

They want to sit on the fence in a central position in which both Iran and USA are courting them in an attempt to get them to choose sides. The Iranian nuclear issue helps to keep fuel prices high, which benefits Russia, a major exporter of fossil fuels. Russia has no interest in seeing Iran and the United States reunited diplomatic as this will rubber stamp the sale of Iranian gas to the European market - a market where Russia is now a major supplier.

The economic embargo toward Russia is hurting them badly so the Russians try to get some in return. The Chinese don't want worthless Rubles, they want USD. It is all about money, Russia is leaking every day now, this is only a part of the political game

I am not sure that is the case as the Chinese have been reducing their holdings in USD over the last few years and they are heavily invested in the BRICS development.

I am prepared to bet that China would prefer the reserve currency be theirs rather than the USD and they are in a position to make that happen as they are one of the few countries with the ability to destroy the US economy at the flick of a switch.

Industry analysts and Middle East experts say that the region’s turmoil, and the determination of the wealthy Sunni nations to battle Shiite Iran for regional supremacy, will lead to a surge in new orders for the defense industry’s latest, most high-tech hardware.

The militaries of gulf nations have been “a combination of something between symbols of deterrence and national flying clubs,” said Richard L. Aboulafia, a defense analyst at the Teal Group. “Now they’re suddenly being used.”

Saudi Arabia spent more than $80 billion on weaponry last year — the most ever, and more than either France or Britain — and has become the world’s fourth-largest defense market, according to figures released last week by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, which tracks global military spending. The Emirates spent nearly $23 billion last year, more than three times what they spent in 2006.

Qatar, another gulf country with bulging coffers and a desire to assert its influence around the Middle East, is on a shopping spree. Last year, Qatar signed an $11 billion deal with the Pentagon to purchase Apache attack helicopters and Patriot and Javelin air-defense systems. Now the tiny nation is hoping to make a large purchase of Boeing F-15 fighters to replace its aging fleet of French Mirage jets. Qatari officials are expected to present the Obama administration with a wish list of advanced weapons before they come to Washington next month for meetings with other gulf nations.


American defense firms are following the money. Boeing opened an office in Doha, Qatar, in 2011, and Lockheed Martin set up an office there this year. Lockheed created a division in 2013 devoted solely to foreign military sales, and the company’s chief executive, Marillyn Hewson, has said that Lockheed needs to increase foreign business — with a goal of global arms sales’ becoming 25 percent to 30 percent of its revenue — in part to offset the shrinking of the Pentagon budget after the post-Sept. 11 boom.
