ARTIC > BARRETT = unlike pre-WW2. where the majority of Austrians supported their country's quasi-union wid Hitler's Nazi Germany, THE SAUDIS MAY NOT ENJOY ANY MASS POPULAR SUPPORT FROM ORDINARY BAHRAINIS, SUNNI OR SHIA, TO INCLUD MANY IN BAHRAIN'S GOVT + ARMY-POLICE???

Taken collectively, IMO the US Navy-DOD is well-aware that Iran would like to control or dominate both or all sides of the Persian Gulf, + isolate or restrict any US-led, anti-NucProg invasion force to the Sea of Oman + beyond where Iran can better employ its LR Air + Missle firepower, Submarines, etc. agz same + keep the US = US-NATO/Allies out of southern Iran.
* NEWS KERALA > JAILED ISLAMIST PAK ARMY OFFICER CALLS FOR CUTTING ANTI-TERROR ALLIANCE WID US.
As per IRAN, it means PAKISTAN'S NUKES-WMDS may be used as part of its defense agz US-led ground invasion. PAKI OR NORTH KOREAN OR OTHER NUCBOMB, ALL IRAN NEEDS IS ONE OR MORE LOW-YIELD NUCBOMBS TO DETONATE INSIDE A US MIL BEACHJEAD ANDOR AIRHEAD CAUSING MASS US, ETAL. MIL CASUALTIES. It only needs a few or handful of Nukes-WDMS that are used well agz US Milfors.
The nervousy twitchy, blame-happy, "Bring the Boyz home now or else" US Congress + Activists-Politicos, MSM, etc. will do the rest for Iran.
