You are right. Photos spread about IRGC ballistic missile launch are old https://twitter.com/Syrian_MC/status/1214692198912008193 …
There are not even alarms going off prior to impact so far ive seen in impact video's.

Russia can use the Caspian Sea as a backdoor to help Iran. Iran can ship its oil to Russia via the Caspian and Russia
can sell that oil and give Iran whatever currency it wants for it. The main thing is for Russia to block any
UN approval of sanctions on Iran. The US can make up all the sanctions it wants and Russia is free to ignore them.
I am sure that Uncle Scumbag will go for the jugular of trying to block Russian resale of Iranian oil, but Russia
can play dirty and threaten to stop selling oil at all. That would remove at least 7+2=9 million barrels per day
from the market. Saudi Arabia, unlike in the past, cannot dial its production to fill such a huge gap. The gasoline
price in the US will shoot up enough to cause the a 2008 meltdown all over again. Trumpy and the Congress chimps will
have to decide what is more valuable to them.
Russia does not need to sell Iranian oil, they can use almost all of it for domestic consumption...and they can export Russian oil

Russia is not the USSR, its elites are not the elites brought up with a different world view 50 years ago. Putin's head will roll on Kremlin Square before oil production is stopped to help the Iranians.
As for arms sales... anyone only needs to go back to Russia's embarrassing behavior with the Iranian S-300's to see how weak and misguided they're at the top. Hoping for browny points with the U.S only to be slapped. Submissive behavior, unprofessional behavior, cynical. If they don't even do it for Syria when Israel bombs them freely... the country that's home to two of its bases.... the very one that prevents a GAS a pipeline crossing Qatar all the way to Europe... why would they do it for the Iranians?
Not to mention, the Russian elite are scared shitless of the empire and that sentiment reverberates in every decision they make. At least that elite understands self preservation which is why the army was given a lift. Russia defines itself through the Empire and in opposition to whichever empire rules the world at any given time. It never truly leads as a nation. And that's a sad reality. Without the empires it wouldn't know what do with itself geopolitically - except expand geographically... a very messy and basic way of absorbing power. It's a cultural thing. The USSR was the only truly global push of Russia as an empire and they flopped 50 years after WWII.

He'll be in for a rude awakening. Iran did what Serbia didn't.
