News the HP Doesn't Cover: Russian Missiles to Iran

Here's some disturbing news the Huffington Post hasn't bothered covering (yet):
Russia will offer Iran a new supply of S-300 missiles and assistance in the construction of an additional nuclear reactor in Bushehr, Russian paper Kommersant reported Wednesday. The proposal comes three years after a previous agreement under which Russia was expected to transfer five S-300 batteries to Iran was canceled. A week and a half ago Russian President Vladimir Putin confirmed in an interview for AP that Moscow supplied Syria with components for the system, but that the shipment was not completed.
According to a source within the Kremlin, Putin decided to grant an Iranian request to supply the Islamic Republic with the high-end S-300 air defense system with a deal estimated at $800 million which will also include coordinating the construction of an additional nuclear reactor in Bushehr.
