Gulf War Rumors

Another one of those reports that you get nervous about:

Less than a month ago I posted on the military preparation going on in the Gulf.
Additional elements are pointing towards the seriousness of the preparation in place. For instance Qatar helped by the IAEA and Western nuclear powers is putting in place a defense plan against nuclear radiations.
Also Assafir reported that Gulf monarchies just finished preparing an emergency plan in case of a blockade of the Strait of Ormuz, which Iran has threatened to block. The Gulf Countries Transportation Ministers have signed on the plan which consists in using alternate ports for mostly oil transport.
Finally most Arab countries are furious about the very close rapprochement between Iran and Syria. In fact, just a few days ago, the Defense Ministers of these two countries inked a military agreement to protect themselves against ” US and Zionist threats”. This agreement entails that if one of the two is attacked then the other one will come to the rescue.
Skies are definetely getting darker again in that region…

But I’m not sure that “most Arab countries are furious ” helps us in any way, because they still hate us more. Oh sure, they’ll gladly have us solve problems for them but we can’t expect any thanks.

    I don’t particularly care if they hate us, as long as they’re scared shitless of doing anything to piss us off.

    And Ken, that is the the only thing they seem to understand, too.
