War with Iran is nearly certain, either it will be started by Israeli strikes on Iran or by the U.S. (less likely) ... Either way, building up these
defenses in the gulf region is a logical move.
While I believe the last thing the Obama administration wants is a military confrontation with Iran, they are faced with an inevitable confrontation
and this move simply highlights that.
If there is a new war in the Middle East, the best way they can solidify US support for that war, would be following the aftermath of a large scale
terrorist attack in the USA that can be linked in any way to Iran.
If the Israelis really want to take Iran out they should make that happen, then drop a few bombs on Iran... The US military can take it from there.
"Not if, but when."
If you are living in a major U.S. and/or perhaps even a U.K. city considered a prime target for a large scale act of international terrorism, or
retaliation NOW would be a logical time to consider a move to a more "safe" rural location.
The time for talk and empty threats is quickly running out.
The Iranian propaganda machine has bought them just about all of the time it can. They want war, the destruction of Israel and, more importantly to
fulfill Koranic religious prophecy, even if that means that they must martyr their entire nation in the process... But they have also, faith that
Allah will in the end save them.
