Putin is playing a dangerous game

MOSCOW - Russia has agreed to sell more than $1 billion worth of missiles and other defense systems to Iran, Russian news media reported Friday, a move expected to draw a heated reaction from the United States.
The Interfax and ITAR-Tass news agencies cited unidentified sources in the Russian military-industrial complex as saying that Russian and Iranian officials had signed contracts in November that would send up to 30 Tor-M1 missile systems to Iran over the next two years.
Interfax said the Tor-M1 system could identify up to 48 targets and fire at two targets simultaneously at a height of up to 20,000 feet.

Obviously this deal has nothing to do with pre-existing strategic agreements between Russian and Iran, but rather a statement by Putin-KGB (as I affectionately call him) and Kremlin towards Americans and especially Zionist elements in Israeli government agenda towards Iran, however, this is not a good time for Russia to ally self with in the Axis of Evil nation of Iran and display this needless bravado - especially after the statements by the Iranian president.
