    Jordan to Deploy Patriot Missiles

    [​IMG]

    Jordan, which shares borders with war-torn Syria, said Sunday it is in talks with “friendly countries” to deploy Patriot missiles on its territory after a similar move by Turkey.

    “Jordan wishes to deploy Patriot missile batteries in order to boost its defense capabilities and help protect the country,” Information Minister Mohammad Momani told a news conference.

    “We are currently at the stage of talks with friendly states,” said Momani, who is also government spokesman, declining to elaborate.
    A North Atlantic Treaty Organization official said last week that four batteries of Patriot missiles have arrived in Turkey as part of a mission by the alliance to protect the Turkish border from any spillover of the conflict in neighboring Syria.

    NATO approved their deployment in December, saying the use of ballistic missiles by the Syrian regime posed a threat to Turkey.

    Jordan, home to more than 500,000 Syrian refugees, has similar concerns as Turkey.

    “We wish and we demand Patriot missiles. We always talk about this because we want to protect ourselves,” Jordan's Prime Minister Abdullah Nsur told Qatar's Al-Sharq newspaper last week.

    In April, U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel revealed that 150 U.S. military specialists have been deployed in Jordan since last year and that he had ordered a U.S. Army headquarters team to bolster the mission, bringing the total American presence to more than 200 troops.

    Well they can't use it against the GCC...with Syria, you have no threat there...

    What is amazing where is that SUPER DOOPER Jordanian Army that make one mouth full of the SAA and HIZB or Iran..I can't wait to read a reply from l'encule !

    Manned by the US...The closest the Jordanian can see them is tru a picture...Against the Assad S300, they are offensive as a tootsie roll.

    They are supposed to stay in Jordan, as for now, I guess we need American personal to operate them as they are not ours. We might have them later.

    The US could make some excuse out of this deployment in Jordan, stay there permanently and prevent another popular uprising from toppling their stooge from Jordan?! Allahu Alam.
