PUTIN HAS REJECTED IRAN'S S-400 MISSILE REQUEST OVER SOARING GULF TENSIONS

Bloomberg reports that Russia's President Putin has rejected a controversial Iranian request to buy S-400 missile defense systems on the basis of current soaring tensions between Tehran and Washington following accusations of "sabotage" attacks on oil tankers and a pipeline in the gulf region.

The breaking report cites a senior Russian official and other unnamed sources with knowledge of the matter:

The request was rebuffed by President Vladimir Putin, the people said on condition of anonymity because they’re not authorized to discuss the matter. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif visited Moscow May 7.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Again, Putin has proven himself one of the few "adults in the room" in geopolitics.

This guy has the "horse sense" to know when to push (as he did with Syria's government, in terms of assisting it get rid of most of the US trained, funded, and armed jihadis), and when to back off (not giving Iran the requested S-400 missile defense system.)

I think world history, will treat this man very kindly, in years to come...
