Australia joins US in Gulf patrol

24
Australia has decided to join the international coalition led by the United States for the protection of oil transportation in the Strait of Hormuz to counter Iran’s activities. This was stated by Prime Minister Scott Morrison.


Australia joins US in Gulf patrol


According to the Australian Prime Minister, Canberra agreed with Washington’s request to join the international coalition for the protection of oil transportation in the Strait of Hormuz, since "up to 25% of oil supplied to Australia passes through it." He noted that "the contribution to the coalition will be limited." At the same time, Morrison explained the decision to join the US as "the destabilizing behavior of Iran, which poses a threat to Australia's national interests in the region."

The government decided that cooperation with our international partners in ensuring security in the Middle East lies in Australia’s national interests, and we need to contribute to the international mission to maintain peace and safe navigation in the Strait of Hormuz, through which about 25% of the oil supplied to Australia. Our contribution will be limited in volume and time.

- he said.

The Australian media, commenting on Morrison’s statement, said that Australia plans to send one Australian Navy frigate, surveillance aircraft and a limited contingent of 200 troops to the Persian Gulf.

A naval coalition was created by the United States after the arrest by the Iranian authorities of a British tanker that entered Iranian territorial waters. At the moment, the United Kingdom joined the United Kingdom, sending two frigates to the Strait of Hormuz. The desire to patrol the area in order to protect its tankers was declared by an ally of Australia in the Asia-Pacific region, but it will not join the US coalition. Germany also refused the Americans.

      We would have such allies as Australia in the USA ... New Zealand put every tenth man in WWII for Britain. Where is Verdun, and where is New Zealand .. Do we have such allies? For a thousand times, I’ve been convinced, two allies of Russia, the army and navy .

        It is necessary to destroy the "English world", Australians, New Zealanders and Canadians, they originate respectively from the ancient Austrians, New Zealanders and Canaids and their history is 10000 years old and the British have always spread rot and genocide, and so on.

          Yes, no one will let the Anglo-Saxon world break with the help of Russian NGOs. There are no fools sitting unfortunately.

        Well, what kind of allies are these?)) Rather, vassals / colonies mimicking in favor of political expediency.

        There is an Anglo-Saxon world, whoever and whatever may say. And this "world" is huge in the territory and sea spaces around it. Great Britain, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand. They still travel, live, work in this world without problems. Many Britons (I deliberately do not divide them into smaller national formations) have a lot of relatives living in the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand.
        Many even keep their pedigrees and maintain close contacts.

        And if it is NECESSARY, then these countries (people) will come together. And it will be very difficult to resist them.
        Although it is never declared loudly and is not particularly pedalized.

      Duck is not for safety, but for confirmation of devotion to the "city on the hill". Nobody in Australia's political leadership wants to "sleep with the maid" like Strauss-Kahn yes

      Kangaroos do not sit on their green continent, there were not many Gallipoli and Normandy, they again decided to put their shnobel out of the sea, because they did not receive it properly, the question is of course five, that they forgot the hell out of their houses.

    Eka international coalition is gathering. At least sometimes they rewrote the blanks for interest. First, provoke the "destabilizing" behavior of Iran, and then fight it together.

    It would be strange if Australia, as one of the pillars of the Anglo-Saxon world, did not join. For the completeness of the set, Canada and New Zealand are missing and there will be full poker of the Anglo-Saxon armies. Well, for the number of the coalition will find someone to throw "for the crowd." Poland has already made the same stand ... local Arabs and all sorts of catch up .. NATO is also big, there will be those who want to show "solidarity". I wonder if they call Ukraine, what will she send?

    Australia, like many Western countries, is in the inner pocket of the USA!

    Where without her? Their premieres have been more than once creative! Either they want to shake the GDP for breasts, or for what reason they are excited! Are they bored there, perhaps, far from all world events?

    A "shock fist" is being formed. If it "fuses", according to the US, it will fight.

    It’s boring for the Australians, so if a couple of million refugees from Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq, etc., were brought in for the development of the Australian virgin lands, then they would have no time for a neighbor on the opposite bank of the Indian "big river". And so well, it's very boring on the edge of civilization, and I really want to be in the center of all events)))

    The economy of Australia and New Zealand is equal to the economy of Russia, the population of both 30 Lyam is a serious force, with developed industrial production, their economy allows you to build a powerful army, if they build a powerful fleet increasing the population they will be a serious force in the south of Asia and will control the oceans and international trade routes which are valued at trillions of dollars; others will pay taxes to them.
