Obama Administration rhetoric against Iran is increasing fears of war in the region, and leading US allies near Iran to purchase growing numbers of US-made missile defense systems. The sales to states in the region total several billion dollars.
The US is also escalating its own deployment of ship-based missile defenses off the Iranian coast, as well as deploying American assets in some nations in the region. Officials say the nations where the US will deploy the systems is classified, though Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates are reportedly among them.
US officials said the move was in response to a “growing missile threat” posed by Iran, but few seriously think the Iranian government would launch an unprovoked missile attack against one of its neighbors.
Such a move would rather be more likely to come as a response to a Western attack, something oft-threatened. Yet those speculating that this means an attack is forthcoming should remember that the US has used the alleged “threat” of Iran’s missiles as justification for a myriad of plans in locations that couldn’t even hypothetically be hit by Iran’s best missiles. Increased US arms sales and closer military ties in the Middle East don’t necessarily require an ulterior motive.

Its been reported in the Middle East that A secret meeting between the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Leon Panetta and Israeli officials centered on Iran’s nuclear program.
In a secret flying visit to Israel on Thursday, the head of the CIA reportedly discussed Iran’s nuclear issue in a sit-down with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Mossad Chief Meir Dagan.
The trip, which was originally scheduled to take place in May, follows a recent wave of developments in the Middle East that are strongly imply preparations for a possible new military conflict in the region.
Israel has allegedly increased the scope of its undercover operations in the region, particularly against Lebanon, Iran, Syria and the Palestinian resistance movement, Hamas.
Reads like the plan originally developed by Netanyahu with the help of Richard Perle, Douglas Feith and the Wurmsers and fellow neocons to protect Israel at all costs is still being implemented by Mr. Obama.
Sadly – the ONLY real 'enemy' that the U.S. has in the Middle East is Israel.
This post is reminding us the preposterous allegation of US/Israel and the corporate media about the dangers of Iran's nuclear attacks on Israel or Europe.
Shows who is really in charge…..shows how they consider the masses as flocks of sheep…….amazing !!
Iran is being prepared for attack. Iran should stop the export of oil now and if attacked by the usa or the zionist entity should mine the gulf. The zionist mad dogs are the most likely method of attack as usa wants to keep its hands clean.if usa or zionist get any help with attack from saudi arabia or the fuedel gulf states there should be regime change. stop the oil now show them what the price will do.victory to IRAN.
On March 24,2010,The US.,and Israeli troops will be invading Iran,and taking over all the Arbain gulf Ports,and oil fields.This is a fact,and regim change will take place.
