UK doubles naval presence in Persian Gulf

Recommended Posts

For all you anti-war people, looks like UK is going to follow us into a war with Iran if we do attack.

Britain’s senior naval officer in the Persian Gulf has revealed that Royal Navy deployments in the region have doubled since October in a build-up that matches the rapid escalation of American maritime firepower.

*scratches chin* Maybe thats why they are pulling their troops out of Iraq? Why do you want war with Iran? Sorry if that is not what you really feel, but it just comes across that way.

Why would the UK send in their old frigates and mine-sweepers. Not state of the art stuff.

Type 22 Broadsword class frigates were built in the 1980's and all but four remain. The rest were scrapped or sold to third world countries. Maybe, they expect to be attacked, and due to their age....wouldn't be great losses. But would provoke the full might of the Royal Navy. Just a thought.

This reminds me of the quote "The British military is a lion lead by jackasses". I don't remember who said it.
