The United States will continue to create a missile defense system in the Persian Gulf

The United States plans to continue the creation of a missile defense system (PRO) in the Persian Gulf, reports RIA "News"With reference to State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell.

The states operate in the region in collaboration with a number of Arab countries. The missile defense system they are creating is designed to protect hydrocarbon deposits and the corresponding infrastructure from the missile threat emanating from Iran. The system will include US early-warning radars, interceptor missiles, US Navy ships with Aegis anti-aircraft systems. All of this will be coordinated by a single command and information center.

Such a decision was caused by a growing threat to US forces and their partners, Ventrell said. Deployment of missile defense in the region will become part of the global US missile defense system. According to the New York Times, the Pentagon has already begun delivering several billion dollars worth of weapons and equipment to the allied countries of the Persian Gulf.

Earlier, the head of the Russian State Duma’s international committee, Alexei Pushkov, called this US decision a sign of a possible military confrontation with Iran. However, the PIR Center Vice-President Yevgeny Buzhinsky believes that such a system will be created over the course of several years and one should not attach importance to the implementation of this project.

    Well, let them wander off the northern, Far Eastern, Mediterranean and other seas. Iran itself will not be the first to plow, and there are many other ways to blow up oil fields. What Americans rush with their missile defense, as with a written shell?

      In the Persian Gulf, missile defense will immediately go to Russia and China on 2 fronts. to offer them S-300 at domestic prices, at least, they just fulfill the task of protecting non-military objects, I would look what excuse they would come up with later))))

        Modern modifications of the SM-3, while flying just over 500 km, and even from the Basra region to the borders of Russia are more than 800, I generally keep silent about China ... Only in the future are they planning to bring the range to 1500, but ... dreams, dreams

        Let them amuse themselves (for now). For some reason, I am more inclined to believe academics, and not information feeds: "Russian scientists have created a device the size of a small suitcase that can instantly disable all electronic components of enemy weapons systems," said a member of the Presidential Council for Science and high technologies Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Vladimir Fortov. According to the academician, using a powerful and compact source of radio emission, it is possible to simultaneously disable all the enemy's electronics. In addition, the arsenal has devices that turn off electronic equipment for a short time - for 20 minutes, for example, during special operations. "The created device is the size of a small portfolio and has a capacity of one gigawatt (GW). For comparison: GW of energy is two stages of DneproGES, or one Chernobyl reactor. There are developments in radiation sources with a coverage of a kilometer, there are - 200 meters, "- Fortov specified. The academician also noted that the device acts not only on the enemy's electronics." Unfortunately, not only the enemy's equipment will be locally disabled, but also all electronic devices of civilians. But when the war has already begun, victory is more important. "
        According to Fortov, the weapon will work for about one second, this is enough to completely disable all electronic components of the enemy, including locators, night vision devices, electronic sights, mobile communications, and GPS satellite navigation receivers. "At a distance, you can stop tanks, knock fighters off course, and blow up radio-controlled mines," concluded the academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

    I imagine that in 20 years the missile defense system will cover the whole world. Stand on every roof and in every garden of NATO allies. This will be an indicator of US paranoia. bully

    The USA is deploying wherever they want, and we all console ourselves-no, not dangerous, nonsense, after many years ...
    As you know, the scribe sneaks up unnoticed! Where is the effort to deploy our systems?

      Who consoles that? Development of the R-30 began 14 years ago, if anything. In general, google RK "Zircon" so as not to ask stupid questions.

      Thank God, in the 80s they bought into Reagan's "Star Wars", well, the Americans started laughing afterwards ... "Star Wars", where are you, ayy. But how many of your own, more effective ones, were laughing.

      not dangerous, nonsense, after many years.

      Generals, as you know, are preparing for the past wars: "The Federation of American Scientists raised the question of the need to change the US nuclear doctrine. There is little sense in the impressive arsenal left over from the Cold War, but it poses a serious danger, scientists warn. In addition, in order to win war, there is no longer a need to deliver nuclear strikes on densely populated cities, it is enough to disable key industrial facilities. There are 12 of them in Russia. To strike at densely populated cities, as it is supposed in accordance with the current doctrine, is inhumane, American scientists believe. time, in their opinion, victory in the war can be ensured by a series of strikes against key industrial infrastructure, which do not involve numerous casualties among the civilian population.
      The report notes that, despite the decline in the number of nuclear warheads, attitudes towards them and their role have remained unchanged since the Cold War. In particular, the governing documents provide, if necessary, to strike at nuclear facilities on the territory of Russia. The authors of the report illustrated their thesis on the example of Russia, although they also named China, North Korea, Syria and Iran as possible opponents. Scientists counted 12 in total on the territory of the Russian Federation. objects, the destruction of which will lead to the defeat of the country. These are the Omsk, Angarsk and Kirishskiy oil refineries, Magnitogorsk, Nizhniy Tagil and Cherepovets metallurgical plants, Norilsk Nickel, Bratsk and Novokuznetsk aluminum plants, Berezovskaya, Sredneuralskaya and Surgutskaya GRES. At the same time, despite the humane nature of this approach, these facilities will building, about a million inhabitants of Russia will be doomed to death, warn the authors of the document ".http: // s = 6d937e352d6c4a

    Let them create and protect hydrocarbons, but we need to strengthen the Armed Forces and take into service what they will be in ....... But there is some groundwork. Sincerely.
