Assad's new S-300 surface-to-air missiles

So Russia just delivered these to Assad. Its radars can track up to 100 objects at a time and engage up to 12. Set-up time is five minutes. Did Libya or Iraq have these? Because a no-fly zone is looking more unlikely.

Well, nobody is sure if the missiles are already in Syria or not. And Israel seems more than willing to stop the Syrians from deploying the rockets.

@Ripituc: I would love to see Israel do a number of precision air strikes. I think Turkey, Jordan, and Qatar are probably secretly rooting for the Israeli Air Force.
