File under: Govt of Iran
#1 Again, among other IMO Iran is "shaping the Battlefield" to counter any possible US-led ground invasion from the SoH + Main Gulf.
We already know from various MSM-Net Reports, Perts that none of Iran's Muslim neighbors, even those agz Iran e.g. Turkey + KSA, etc. will NOT allow the US-NATO to use their territories as staging areas for any MilStrikes, Campaigns agz Iran. THIS COULD POTEN CHANGE WID THE UAE ALA ABU MUSA + OTHER DISPUTED ISLANDS, hence Iran's action in deploying these assets.
Iran is also countering on LOCAL "ARAB/MUSLIM
/SHIA SPRINGS" to destabilize the Arabian Peninsula side of the PG, and result in pro-Islamist Govts. that will continue denying access as above to the US-NATO. IRAN ONLY NEEDS THEM TO BE NEUTRAL BUT ALSO ANTI-US, NATO AS PER DENIAL.
That leaves the Sea of Oman + outer Seas where US Nuke Carriers + Amphib Forces can be targeted, damaged or destroyed, by LR Iranian firepower, to include that of NUKE-ARMED MUSLIM NATIONS ALLIED WID IRAN E.G. PAKISTAN. ALso good for Mama Russia since the Mullahs' willingness to detonate Nukes-WMDS [CBRNE(M)...] ON THEIR OWN SOIL TO DEFEAT A US-LED INVASION FORCE RISKS RADIOACTIVE OR CONTAMINATED CLOUDS FORMING VERY CLOSE TO RUSSIA + EX-SSRS.
IRAN KNOWS WHAT ITS DOING.
* ION DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > PERSIAN GULF WILL DEFEAT ENEMY TACTICS: COMMANDER.
* SAME > NORTH AMERICA TO BECOME THE NEW MIDDLE EAST?
* WORLD NEWS > THE PENTAGON IS TAKING THE [US]FIGHT AGZ IRAN TO SOUTH AMERICA, in response to intensive Iranian diplomatic + econ overtures there.

* CHINA DAILY FORUM > CHINA WARNS US: MILITARY CONFRONTATION [Sino-US]COULD ARISE IN SOUTH CHINA SEA DISPUTE, between it China + the Philippines.
Lest we fergit, NET > HAWKS IN THE CHINESE PARTY-GOVT ESTABLISHMENT = have been openly saying for a while that the LONG CHINESE "WAITING PERIOD OF KEEPING A LOW-PROFILE IN STRATEGIC AFFAIRS IS OVER".
CHIN CCP INSIDER WANG JISI/JIXI = CHINA'S ELITE IS PREPARING THE COUNTRY TO BE THE WORLD'S #1 VEE THE US IN A "MATTER OF YEARS, NOT DECADES".
* FYI DEFENCE FORUM INDIA > JAPANESE MEDIA: US, JAPAN AGREE TO SHARE COMMON PACIFIC BASE, JAPAN SDFS MAY [rotating duty] SHARE US BASES IN PHILIPPINE, at Palawan or Luzon???
Besides US Marines coming to Guam, + USDOD-JSDFS on Tinian in CNMI.
CHINA will not like any of these moves by the US-Allies, BUT IRAN WILL.
Yep, Yessirree, You betcha.
