Britain eyes response to Iranís Hormuz base. Qatar, UAE request $7.6 billion in missile defense. Bibi ready to Press Button
Britain said it was considering sending military assets to a base in Abu Dhabi after Iran set up a base near key oil shipping lanes in the Strait of Hormuz.

Iranian Maj. Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari last weekend inaugurated a naval base in Bandar Lengeh for what the semiofficial Fars News Agency said was a defensive move to protect Iranian islands in the Strait of Hormuz.

Qatar and the United Arab Emirates have asked to buy more than $7.6 billion in U.S. missile defense technology, the Pentagon said Tuesday.

The orders for the Lockheed Martin-made equipment were detailed in documents posted online late Monday by the Defense Security Cooperation Agency, which said it had notified Congress of the request.

Qatar has requested two Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) fire units, 12 launchers and 150 interceptors, as well as radar units, other equipment, spare parts and training, all worth an estimated $6.5 billion.

Pentagon confirms request of up to $7.6 billion in Lockheed missile-defense system to counter growing regional threats.

The Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA), which oversees foreign arms sales, formally notified lawmakers on Friday that it had approved the possible sales, which come against the backdrop of heightened tensions with Iran.

Instead of pushing the button, I'd be a lot happier to hear that Bibi pulled the trigger.

Listen to this fine icelandic man right there. Iran would be nowhere near Iraq or Afghanistan, it would be on a whole new level. Iraq would be like a jumping castle in comparison.

Also don't forget that Iran is being backed DIRECTLY by China and Russia.

Why do you think the Israelis are all about talk and no action year after year? That's right, because they're pissing themselves in face of the consequences and won't gamble this high - Save for a few of their crazy power-hungry zionist leaders of course.
