In face of rising tensions over Iran’s nuke program, warships assemble from 30 different countries for military exercise.
Warships from around the world were assembling in the Gulf on Sunday for what the US military described as the most widely attended international naval exercise ever held in the Middle East.
The exercise, which Washington says involves manoeuvres to improve mine detection and clearance, comes at a time of rising regional tensions over Iran’s controversial nuclear program.
Tehran has threatened to block the Strait of Hormuz, through which 40 percent of the world’s sea-borne oil exports passes, and target US military bases in the region if it was attacked.

The military build up is not officially an attaching force. It is meant as a protection force of America and Western oil tankers, in need to protection if an Israeli-Iranian war becomes a reality.
This massive military presence in the Persian Gulf, can also complicate the the Israeli Air force operation needed to cripple the Iranian nuclear program.
On September 21st 2009, the Former national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinsk had the following message to Israel:
“US President Barack Obama should make it clear that if the IAF tries to launch an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities via Iraqi airspace, the US Air Force will shoot down the Israeli jets.
Here is a link to the comments by the hostile antisemitic American adviser.
The US is faced with an Israel Prime Minister who refuse to bow under pressure from Washington. Benjamin Natanyahu has lost any confidence in the USA’s willingness to prevent Iran from triggering a nuclear bomb.
The Pentagon failed to stop North Korea. Israel can not rely on double minded Americans keeping their promises.
Iran’s strongest card, is not the Islamic state’s ability to strike Israel. But to strike the oil tankers in the gulf, and take Americans down the road to a quick bankruptcy.
So if the American and NATO missile powers can not prevent an Israeli strike on Iran, the admirals are ordered to shoot down any incoming Iranian missiles.
The war logic is not build on political nor diplomatic rationals. If Israel is able to strike Iran alone, the best way to protect the American oil transport out of the gulf is to follow suit.
If Iran is left capable of firing back, it will be oil tankers that will take the first blows. The oil prices in the World will over night double, and the fruits will be chaotic.
After refusing do bow before US President Obama, Benjamin Netanyahu is holding the best cards. No one can know for sure the moment of a massive and devastating Israel military attack on the despicable Islamic terrorist regime of the Ayatollah’s of Tehran.
