Construction of the first British naval base began in Bahrain

Foreign ministers of Great Britain and Bahrain opened yesterday the construction of a base of the British Navy in Manama (Salman port), reports RIA News.




The British base will be the first European base in the Persian Gulf with 1971.

“The establishment of the Royal Navy base in Bahrain speaks about the strength of relations between the two countries,” said British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond. “The opening of the base will take place on 2016, when the celebrations on the occasion of the 200 anniversary of the establishment of relations between the UK and Bahrain will take place.”

In response, the Foreign Minister of Bahrain Al Khalifa stressed that "the emergence of the British naval base in Bahrain is not directed against any state, it will ensure the safety of ships in the Persian Gulf and in the Strait of Hormuz."

The decision to build a British base in Manama was announced last year at the Manama Dialogue forum dedicated to security issues in the region.

At that time, the Minister of Defense of the United Kingdom, Michael Fallon, stated that "the appearance of the base will make it possible to send larger ships to ensure stability in the Persian Gulf, including the next generation aircraft carriers."

        Bahrain simply decided to repeat the experience of Qatar - this "miracle kingdom" also covers its rotten affairs with the US base.

      The striking power of the surface forces of the fleet is still made up of three light aircraft carriers of the Invincible type, which have undergone modernization in order to increase the effectiveness of air defense systems and increase by 20 percent. number of aircraft (helicopter) fleet

      New ones are being built, the commissioning period is constantly being postponed sad

    A new target for missiles of Iran and the Russian Federation. I would like to do without it, but since the Anglo-Saxons brazenly climb on the BV - let them become the target.

    Bahrain is another Gulf country with huge per capita income. Completely built infrastructure by Western companies at the hands of Indians, Pakistanis, guys from Bangladesh (laborers). All construction managers are British, Americans, etc. A special guest business for prostitution is built especially for white bosses. To remove a night butterfly in this country as two fingers on the asphalt (you go into a beer bar and you are already invited by girls of easy virtue to themselves. They are there for 10-15 people hanging out in a row). The girls there are mainly involved from Thailand, the Philippines, China ... There are from the African continent, and there are also from Ukraine ... In general, work and “rest” for the white boss are well established there! The business model is understandable: local sheikhs there have a lot of money that they pay to the West for the improvement of their lives. Like this. I am writing about this because I know that I myself have been there often for five years and have seen everything with my own eyes. So the British at this base of attendants will raise normally, you have no doubt.

    And suddenly, from the north come a horde of drunk Russians, with bears on leashes, with a balalaika behind their backs, with Kalash in their hands. If the seriously cold war continues (

    These only after the issuance of the cradles can calm down, and so they will shove, and even for other people's money.

    Of course, an interesting statement, especially in the light of recent publications on the state of Her Majesty's fleet. What are interesting aircraft carriers and larger ships, Great Britain is going to send to the Persian Gulf, exclusively "promising". I think the basis is rather a political aspect, to be noted by the Anglo-Saxons in the Middle East.

    Something like that, dear colleagues. hi

    At the expense of money at the Britons. The Bank of England appeared in 1694. The US Federal Reserve in 1913 as a subsidiary of the BANK of England. The Central Bank of the Russian Federation is a commercial bank owned by the Rockefellers. Russia transfers $ 1,5 billion to the Fed daily. Hence the Pentagon’s $ 500 billion military budget. The ruble is a derivative of the dollar. NB dill - the same thing, but the Rhodschilds.

    With the brazen Saxons all the money is seized. wink yes

    The base of the 5th US fleet is already there, and the shaves are there too. Did not read the Russian historian - MB Piotrovsky wrote: "The mystical significance of Bahrain as a place having special connections with eternity was expressed, in particular, in its special attractiveness as a burial place." yes

    Has the queen started having traffic problems from Afghanistan? Ukrainian ports are under supervision, the Turkish border is on fire, the base in Manas has closed, Pakistanis charge a lot. Something to think about ...
