UAE and Saudi join major Arab military drills in Egypt

UAE and Saudi join major Arab military drills in Egypt thumbnail

The armed forces of the UAE, Saudi Arabia and four other Arab states began a joint training exercise in Egypt this weekend in the first major drills of what may become a regional military alliance to counter Iran.

Alongside the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Egypt, Jordan, Bahrain and Kuwait are taking part in the 16-day “The Shield of the Arabs 1” drills that involve land, sea, air-defence and special forces’ manoeuvres, UAE’s state-run news agency Wam reported.

Lebanon and Morocco will attend as observers, Egyptian military spokesman Col Tamer Al Refai said.

The forces from the six nations are based at the Mohamed Naguib Military Base near the coastal city Hamam. The base, opened last year, is the country’s largest and has 72 training facilities, conference spaces and capacity to house a large force.

In October, Egypt and Saudi Arabia conducted a joint military drill dubbed ‘Tabuk 4′ in southern Egypt.

While he said the exercises were part of Egypt’s efforts to enhance military co-operation with other Arab countries, he declined to speculate on whether they could evolve into a formalised military alliance.

US President Donald Trump’s administration has been lobbying for a force of Arab nations to counter Iran and take a more active role in the Middle East to back international troops that is being dubbed an “Arab Nato”. The idea comes after an agreement in 2015 at the Arab League summit in Cairo to create a joint Arab force that has yet to take shape. The force would have been led by Egypt and headquartered in Saudi Arabia.

 

The UAE is a major partner in the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen to reinstate the internationally recognised government of President Abdrabu Mansur Hadi and recover areas overrun by Iran-backed rebel Houthi movement. Egypt, another member of the coalition, provides reconnaissance assistance and has warships off the Red Sea coastline to protect shipping lanes as Houthi’s have fired anti-ship missiles at commercial vessels on numerous occasions and explosive laden speedboats regularly harass tankers.

While there has been some discussion about including Qatar in the “Arab Nato” force, they are not taking part in the ongoing drills in Egypt. Cairo is a member of the quartet of nations, which includes others taking part, that enacted an embargo on the peninsular kingdom over its regional foreign policy and support for hard-line groups.

The White House confirmed in July it had been working on the concept of an alliance with its regional partners for several months.

A US source said that Saudi officials had raised the idea of a security pact before Trump visited the kingdom last year when he announced a massive arms deal, but the alliance proposal did not get off the ground.

    Those in the Arab world need to bomb the shit out of each other just for old time’s sake. They can do it for the next ten centuries for all I care, just get ‘er done and stop bothering the world with your Middle East nonsense of killing everybody everywhere. It’s getting real old.

    Although, it would be fun to watch it all happen in real time.

    The US wouldn’t have to lift a finger if they really knew what they were doing.

    deadly, you do realize that a war in the ME, a real one, would destroy the US too? The USD relies on the Saudis to stay relevant. If the KSA fails so does the dollar. Not to mention that a real war there would cut off a lot of oil and destroy the world economy. Are you ready to live 3rd world? Do you even know what it means to live 3rd world? I doubt it.

    NASTY JUAN is showing a couple of thing here. He does not have any ideas or debate. It has been several days he mas made many junk comments but only two real comments. He is showing his sexual dysfunctional nature with his latent homosexuality. His wife should know about his cheating bisexuality. He is a selfish moron polluting this forum with comments that will turn away outsiders. He is basically nasty noise. Makti1 plays along and enables this bad behavior. I think we know who is ruining this board.

Davy has been constantly insulting me and falsely accusing me of stealing his identity for weeks and I held back out of consideration for others, but I intend to fuck with him until next year now. Sorry for what’s coming. You can blame Davy for it as he is 100% responsible. Thank Davy for it!

    There is one possible war of consequence in our future, and that is an American first strike on Russia. Why? Because it is logical, as it kills three birds with one stone.

    1) The Pentagon completes it 70 year quest for the Holy Grail, the Holy Grail being the final, glorious, total defeat of the Soviet Union/Russia.

    2) Nuclear winter. If you get it right, you solve both the global warming and overpopulation dilemmas. If you get it a little bit wrong, oh well. Either billions die for the greater good, or all things die, either way, you took your last best shot.

    3) Russian oil becomes American oil -or Exxon’s oil, however you want to look at.

    Hatred is what move human race forward and allow changes either positive and negative. Hatred is as needed as peace.

    So I say Whites people accept hatred of everything that is not Whites. Remember that Whites turn Syria in a shit hole with only drones and missile. Image what kind of damage we could do to the middle east and Africa if the Whites of the world unite together. Image how fast we could turn the middle east and Africa into a shit hole if Russia, US, Europe, China work together. Anyways Whites people will need to colonize Africa because of the new image age coming.

    MOB, the us cannot win any wars. It no longer has the ability to do so. It has ‘hired’ troops and antique weapons. There are not enough able bodied young men left in America to field an army of any size and it would take years to train the few they have. Russia and China, on the other hand have millions of able young men and a standing army larger than that of the US. Not to mention the most modern missiles and systems. Believing that the US can win against a real army is a joke. Your brainwashing is showing.
