"BAHRAIN's king said today the tiny Gulf kingdom was ready to send a naval force to help safeguard Iraqi territorial waters if asked by the new Iraqi government, the official Bahrain News Agency reported.
The announcement by Sheik Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa made Bahrain the second Arab state, after Jordan, to offer troops to Iraq without precondition."

Does Iraq, being a land-locked country have territorial waters?
I know it has large rivers, Tigris for one. Or does this mean 'offshore'?

I don't think that Iraq is land locked. Isn't Basra a port city?

Very little. Hence the reason Saddam wanted Kuwait so badly.

Good point Jalengrma

"It is the country's main port. The city is located along the Shatt al-Arab waterway near the Persian Gulf. Basra is 55 km from the Gulf and 545 km from Baghdad."
en.wikipedia.org...
The Shatt al-Arab waterway is where the recent British recon' crew got busted by Iran.
