http://www.washingtonpost.com/?reload=trueThe United States backs the rebels, while Russia is a longtime ally and arms supplier to Assad. Although Assad has long wanted the advanced S-300, Russia has thus far sent less lethal weaponry, such as guns and ammunition.
Funny, it almost seems like the Russians are playing a shell game. Well played, comrades.
^^^ Looks legit.
Only one Death Star? Not to mention mere 50 nukes. You guys aren't good allies, not at all.
I thought there were no new contracts, only execution of old ones.
Though the numbers look awfully arbitrary. Like, 100,000 AK mags and also 100,000 hand grenades. It's like someone was just writing random number of zeroes next to each item.
Only small arms and ammunition request, no big deal.
