Persian Gulf: Washington wants to arm its allies against Iran (newspaper)

The United States plans to provide a large amount of arms to their allies in the Persian Gulf region, said the U.S. daily Wall Street Journal on Friday.

According to the newspaper, these intentions are part of efforts by Washington to create a regional coalition to counter the Iranian threat.
The newspaper said Washington was eyeing the sale of 4900 of the so-called smart bombs.. Obviously, these measures aim to reduce Iranian influence in the region following the eventual departure of U.S. troops from Iraq before the scheduled end of the year.

Furthermore, Washington is seeking to expand its military ties with the six member countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council(Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, UAE, Oman). Washington has also sought to build up missile-defense systems across the region, with the goal of building an integrated network to defend against short- and intermediate-range ballistic missiles from Iran.
