US Holds "Preparing for War" Exercises with Iran

The United States Air Force closed its air operations operations center for one day, which is responsible for the territory from Syria to Afghanistan. This step was taken in preparation for a possible conflict with Iran.


US Holds "Preparing for War" Exercises with Iran


Operations Management Center aviation missions in South Carolina took command of all U.S. Air Force operations in the Middle East. For the first time in more than a decade, the so-called Joint Aviation Operations Center (CAOC) in Qatar did not control regional operations.

The decision to test this ability to shift responsibility to a command center in the United States was made amid growing tensions with Iran. In preparation for a potential conflict, the Pentagon conducted global exercises. Washington is worried that after unprecedented severity of attacks by cruise missiles and kamikaze UAVs on oil facilities in Saudi Arabia, such tactics will be used in the coming military conflicts.

The alleged targets will be US bases and command centers, and judging by the failure of the US air defense system set by Riyadh, such a strike could be successful. In particular, the Qatar base is within reach of various Iranian ballistic and ground-based cruise missiles.

Center was built for intervention in Iraq


Information about the exercises was first published by the Washington Post (WP), which the Air Force invited to test the capabilities of the US Air Force to transfer control from one command center to another. CAOC, also known as the 609 Air Operations Center (AOC), located at Al-Udeid Air Base in Qatar, discontinued 28 operations on September 2019. For 24 hours, personnel at the Shaw Air Base in South Carolina monitored all Air Force operations in the region, as well as coalition air operations in countries such as Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan.

According to the Air Force, the construction of the SAOK in Al-Udeida began in 2002 in anticipation of the United States intervention in Iraq, which followed the following year. The command post began operational detail in February 2003, just a month before coalition forces invaded the country and overthrew its leader Saddam Hussein. WP reports that the operations center in Qatar, which today employs representatives of nearly a dozen US allies, is the only body responsible for United States and coalition operations in the Middle East and Central Asia since 2006.

The US Air Force was not sure of a smooth transfer of control in case of emergency. That is why the Pentagon conducted a great preparatory work, the result of which was the exercise in the framework of "preparation for the war with Iran."

    Gentlemen, Americans are confident that the control system of the US Air Force, after striking Iran will work ???? recourse
    Iran is not Afghanistan with scattered Taliban units, and not even ISIS feeding from the hands of the CIA ... The war with Iran will draw the entire Islamic world into a mess, and the Americans will endure it ...

      According to the United States, they are for peace. What country are they preparing to wage war on? Something is not like the empire of the world, rather the empire of war and evil laughing

          YES the army would have fallen ... they don’t give a damn about the CIA .., but in negotiations with the Taliban they cannot get a safe exit. And they can’t get out how the Soviet Army came out. Too inherited ..

                      If they do so ... then no board will fly up ... they will burn on the ground. The Germans, too, somehow put the Italians and Hungarians on responsible sites ...

    all these "preparations" will cost the Jews a tidy sum - well, it's not bad that now the robbery of oil from the Saud will not be so cheap; the Houthis need to constantly set fire to oil refineries in the territory of Saudi Arabia, otherwise they are used to robbing for nothing

    Washington is worried that after unprecedented severity of attacks by cruise missiles and kamikaze UAVs on oil facilities in Saudi Arabia, such tactics will be used in the coming military conflicts.

    As a result.
    The United States Air Force closed its air operations operations center for one day, which is responsible for the territory from Syria to Afghanistan.

    The South Carolina Operations Mission Control Center has taken command of all U.S. Air Force operations in the Middle East.

    Preparing for a planned retreat? (The experience of Ukraine.) The timid Americans fled, or at least while they are preparing only for a low start. (The experience of Georgia.) With whom you will lead, from that you will gain.

      I think the United States itself has already thought about the reliability of its own air defense.
