British ASRAAM discussion. Is it actually better than the AIM-9X Blk III?

Note.  We don't talk missiles much on these pages.  We definitely don't talk much about air to air missiles.  So when I ran across this little cross talk on Tumblr I was intrigued.  I just don't know if they're making good points or bad. I just know it all sounds valid.  Read the article but I guess my bigger question is this.  Should we class the ASRAAM and the AIM-9X Blk III as being a medium and short range missile respectively?  Are we seeing a case to be made for aircraft to carry both missiles in these roles?
