US Air Force Chief of Staff urges Gulf countries to build joint anti-Iranian missile defense


According to US Air Force Chief of Staff, Major General David Goldfein, the UAE and other Gulf countries must "overcome old grievances" to provide joint protection against the use of Iranian ballistic missiles. This was reported by FlightGlobal.


Gulf monarchies will only have a short time window to defend themselves from attack, the chief of staff said speaking at the International Air Chiefs conference in Dubai on November 16.

Not a single country individually has everything that is needed for self-defense. But together we have exactly what is needed for collective security

- said a senior military man.

According to Goldfein, so far the US Air Force is committed not to forget its partners in the Persian Gulf. However, to create a full-fledged "anti-Iranian" missile defense it is precisely joint efforts that are extremely important.

The official hinted that the best way to protect, for example, the UAE is not always from the territory of the Emirates themselves. It can be done more conveniently from missile defense from Qatar or Oman, as well as from other neighbors. But for this "you need to stop the enmity."

Goldfein, according to the publication, clearly hinted at the still active diplomatic conflict between several Gulf states and Qatar. Some countries, including Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, accuse Doha of supporting terrorist groups, although Qatar denies such attacks. Diplomatic relations between the countries were broken in the 2017 year.

      Babosiki by itself to minke whales, not even a question.
      The question is different - will Israel be included in this "universal" missile defense? laughing

        Of course not. Israel has its own missile defense system. Most likely it’s better. From the rest, you just need to collect money.

          They have a missile defense declared, nothing more to add about it.
          However, few can boast that his missile defense system is proven and effective. Moreover, recent events have shown that cheaper methods and drones “work” more easily and with sufficient efficiency. Missiles are only shot harder by the Hussites.
          Otherwise, if it was not until now, this does not mean that it will not be in the future.
          In short, carry your denyushki! But to whom, this is an interesting question.

      This, perhaps, is the last American cry to try to boil your scrap metal kit called Patriot - and this is all against the background of a long line of people eager to get the S-400 (whatever they say about it, but the fact of transferring the advance by India at the speed of light says about the popularity of Patriot among the poets of this system) !!
      The next advertiser, who wants to draw general attention to Patriot, can only do it on the air !! laughing

        I agree with you, perhaps in these countries of the Persian Gulf there was practically no country left that did not express a desire to buy S 400. So you came up with a plan to build a joint air defense against Iran. But they still did not understand that those who want the C 400 are building an air defense system against the Americans, not yet joint, but if we can quickly unite. (or they still guess

          It’s right to think: such an opportunity for unification has already been incorporated there, but before unifying the country’s air defense systems (indeed, things can turn out to be impenetrable (especially for small countries!)), But we won’t run ahead of the steam locomotive - not for all countries The USA is an enemy, for some it is the Master, for someone it is Big Brother, for Europe it is an indisputable authority, and for completely brainless people it is also an example in life ...

    The US launched an advertising campaign in the Persian Gulf. But for some time now they have been vaccinated against the American missile defense system.

    Looking broader, they want to create an Arab counterpart to NATO.

      For them, the main thing is not NATO or KhVATO, but to buy more "Patriots".

    Well, it’s better from somewhere from Oman, Poland, Romania, even from the Comoros, but the meaning is one: “It’s always easier to crush a naked booty of a naked hedgehog.”

    Sorry, but in Europe, is there no anti-Iranian missile defense? Why another one? In addition, penguins in Antarctica are completely unprotected, a flaw ...

    I’ll try to guess who in this construction will be the "foreman" and who the customer "... recourse
    And in Krylov’s fable, Leo instructed Fox to build a chicken coop ...

    And so to trick and settle it,
    To completely stop thieves,
    And hens would have contentment and space in him.

    Gulf countries to build a joint "anti-Iranian" missile defense

    Or maybe in order for peace to come in the Middle East, do Arabs need to build anti-American and anti-Israeli anti-aircraft defense on the contrary? There Israel again bombed the insolent in Damascus .. negative

    Now let's turn our attention to the situation in Saudi Arabia, where the Khazar mafia is fighting to preserve the oil-dollar system by publicly listing the Saram oil company Aramco. Here, "Iran’s announcement of a new oil field of 53 billion barrels was timed to disrupt Aramco's initial public offering and should make it richer than Saudi Arabia, whose proven depleted reserves could be well below 200 billion barrels”
    “Until Saudi Arabia signs a non-aggression pact with Iran, a peace agreement with Yemen and no S-400 to protect its oil assets, no one will invest in Aramco. While China may pretend to be interested in Aramco to help Mohammed bin Salman, he may be forced to retreat due to Saudi human rights violations, war crimes, genocide, crimes against humanity, torture, massacres and terrorism.
