This is a literal JOKE,especially the part about “France is currently working to put together a European maritime surveillance mission, distinct from the policy of maximal pressure”,basically its the eurovassals trying to have their cake and eat it too......once again.

France is setting up a new maritime surveillance mission in the Gulf and is helping to improve Saudi Arabia’s air defences, Minister of Defence Florence Parly told a conference on 23 November.

“Earlier this month, after the attack [on] Abqaiq and Khurais [oil facilities on 14 September], I have sent to Saudi Arabia a robust package of advanced warning, including sophisticated radar and tens of [personnel] to deter drone and cruise missile attacks. We will stand by our allies. You can count on us,” she said at the International Institute of Security Studies (IISS) in Manama, Bahrain.

“France is currently working to put together a European maritime surveillance mission, distinct from the policy of maximal pressure,” she added, referring to the US policy of increasing economic sanctions on Iran, which is widely seen as the cause of the recent attacks on tankers and Saudi oil infrastructure.

Nearly 72,000 Uncle Sam's troops deployed in Mid East (excluding Afghanistan,Turkey) to protect those nations from each other. Still not enough....now France wants to pitch in.... Seems even 3rd world nations in Africa, Central & South America has more intellectual acumen than desert nations in Mid east. Neocon Bill Buckley wrote nearly four decades ago... bedouins are unfit to self-govern....

The GCC ‘leaders’ have literally no shame, why not just invite each European country to set up a base and they can go back to their parties and luxury lifestyles.
