Report: British fleet is preparing to take control of the Persian Gulf

28

Britain plans to increase its military presence in the Persian Gulf, regaining its former position in the region. Among the reasons for the return to the foreign policy of the British Empire are the “Arab Spring” and the fear of nuclear weapons Iran


The Royal Joint Institute for Defense Studies published a report, “Returning East of Suez? Combat deployment in the Persian Gulf ". After analyzing the turn in the policy of Great Britain, the staff of the Center for Defense Affairs came to the conclusion that the reason for the change in foreign policy was the fear of what is happening in the Middle East.

It is noted that the increase in the number of troops in the Persian Gulf does not mean a full return to the imperial style. Britain intends to strengthen the "shadow" presence in the region: it involves the conclusion of agreements, the holding of exercises and the deployment of military bases.
London withdrew troops from areas east of the Suez Canal, including from the Gulf States in 1971. As a result, several independent states were formed in the region.

Experts from the Institute of Defense Studies claim that the British government does not plan to deploy armed forces in the region in the near future, but emphasize that an expansion of the presence would be advisable due to social unrest after the Arab Spring.

      Anyone is prepared for a mess in the Gulf. And everything seems to be serious already.
      Eh would give them a cumpole, the hands of Iran and Syria. For a long time they would have stood up and seldom-rarely mumbled ...

        Let them climb into the Persian Gulf. In the Iranian area, the bay is completely covered by Iran’s high-speed mosquito fleet. These evil marine bull terriers can bite the ass of the British fleet well, and mini submarines turn these cramped waters into soup with dumplings. In the bay, the Anglic arrogance will quickly fly off. Well, what a nation, more ambition than the Poles. If you meet a sailor with a broken face in the port, do not hesitate. Traditionally, the Englishman received a face for his arrogance.

      I think the Pentagon has big financing problems in connection with the crisis, so they asked the satellite for a little support. In general, the shadow presence is not the construction of military bases and the building of a fleet in the bay, it is the purchase of ministers of various states and generals in case of war.

      So you can’t hide the rotten gut, or you can’t hide the sewn in the bag laughing Filibuster roots, all the same. The United States patronizes the Somali pirates, and England decided to shake the old days. lol Only the extent of the robbery is already different. Before the court robbed, now the state.

    Preparing to bend Iran. And why did the Britons become afraid of Iranian weapons or the British island sailed to Iran. Rather, kosher all countries unite - the United States, Brita, Israel. And the mess will most likely start during the Sochi Olympics - a convenient alignment, to be sure.

      Quite possibly. After provocation of the US special services in Boston, I had the same suspicion. But GDP apparently kept ACE up its sleeve, because after negotiations with Barack, the US changed anti Russian rhetoric. I had to officially admit that the FSB transmitted information about these potential terrorists. But. Shapoklyak is worth some kind of dirty trick. No wonder they made bonfires, and put matches nearby. am

    Defense Research Institute experts say the British government has no plans to deploy military forces in the region in the near future

    by itself does not plan. the loot stolen from half of the world has ended, and now they are trying to create the appearance of a presence in the region. They are nothing without their American friends. I can imagine what would happen to the Britons if the entire Nazi machine crashed into them, and not to us!
    By the way, Hitler’s miscalculations on this score seem too ridiculous: to leave Britain untouched and to get off with only miserable raids. not all is simple, although the topic is different.

    All the bazaars about "the need for Britain to increase its military presence in the Persian Gulf, regaining its former position in the region" - complete shnya!
    Compress the noose around the Persians. With whom do we argue that "adult" will begin to choke in a year?
    And if they also give Syria, then already for the future.

    "English shit"

    Syria, in my opinion, is no longer being given over. This shnyaga (war) will drag on for decades. Unless the third party intervenes, and she does not intervene because it (war) is beneficial (as it is not bitterly recognized) to everyone!

    But in reality, they simply fear that Russia, restoring its fleet, will seize the initiative and they will lose control over the region. Confrontations are growing and China is already making bids in the region, the United States is not coping, the situation is becoming explosive and its outcome will change the balance of power in the world in general - these are the reasons.

        Почему нет?

        Earth is our common home and we must learn to live in harmony. Redirecting is the methodology of our “friends” and our strength is in truth. If our “friends” bite over - yes, please, you can still expose the contradictions thereby adding oil to the cleansing fire. To act by their methods is not to respect yourself.

          What’s the strength, brother? The strength is in the ability to defend one’s interests EVERYWHERE, no matter how it looks from the outside. And it’s right (the USA is a confirmation). The era of mercy isn’t it coming soon? And, Sharapov? (" venue...")

            The strength is in the ability to defend one’s interests EVERYWHERE, no matter how it looks from the outside. And this is correct (USA is a confirmation)

            Russia is not the United States and never, I hope, it will not be, if the Russian turns into the Yankees then it will be worthless. "Your interests" often overlap with desires and benefits, not for the sake of fulfilling countless desires a person lives. Therefore, Russia is the hope of the whole world, because it has a chance to show a different path. Charity is an internal quality, and not everyone understands it sometimes is more merciful to kill a person than to give him the opportunity to destroy his soul. Mercy is not pity but life after heart.
            But only a strong spirit can be merciful, and a healthy spirit lives in a healthy body.

    Looking at the map you are amazed; it’s under the “belly” of Russia, England wants (I will quote) "to increase the military presence in the Persian Gulf, regaining its former position in the region." And God forbid the Russians intervene! Immediately Putin was declared a dictator, the country is an anti-democratic evil empire! What impudence! Such things clearly demonstrate the vaunted Western democracy!

    The British are just trench meat for US operations. Like other NATO members. Although even the word member is a compliment to many countries. Particles of NATO is their name. And people will die. For what? For keeping afloat America? I feel sorry for the people ... There is no country.

    The motivation for the presence of the Britons fleet is ridiculous. Here are the quotes.
    Among the reasons for the return to the British Empire’s foreign policy are the “Arab spring” and the fear of Iran’s nuclear weapons.
    Like in a movie, the Britons are so scary that sometimes looking in the mirror, they are afraid of themselves. : logging:
    came to the conclusion that the fear of what was happening in the Middle East was the cause of the change in the foreign policy.
    Well and here is the most important thing, slightly veiled.
    It is noted that the increase in the number of troops in the Persian Gulf does not mean a full return to the imperial style. Britain intends to strengthen the "shadow" presence in the region: it involves the conclusion of agreements, the holding of exercises and the deployment of military bases.

    . Before climbing into Iran, they would have cleaned their own black-backed copy. And then the partisans will receive in their rear. Here the reaction of the Russian Federation and China in the event of military operations against Iran is more interesting.
