U.S. PREPARING ARAB ALLIED NATIONS FIGHTER PILOTS FOR WAR WITH IRAN
OCT 2 2007
The United States Air Force (USAF) is working with military leaders from Persian Gulf states to train and prepare Arab air forces for a possible war with Iran, The Daily Telegraph reported Tuesday.
Attendants at an air warfare conference in Washington last week were told how American air chiefs have helped to coordinate intelligence-sharing with Gulf Arab nations and organized combined exercises designed to make fighting together easier.
Gen. Michael Mosley, USAF chief of staff, used the conference to seek closer links with allies whose support America might need if US President George W. Bush decided to bomb Iran, the paper reported.
Pentagon air chiefs have helped set up an air warfare center in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) where Gulf nations are training their fighter pilots and America has large-scale bases. The center is modeled on the USAF warfare center at Nellis air force base in Nevada.
Jordan and the UAE have both taken part in combined exercises designed to make sure their air forces can fly, and fight, together and with American jets, the Telegraph reported.
While it was unlikely that America's Gulf allies would join any US air strike against suspected nuclear targets in Iran, their co-operation might be required to allow passage of warplanes though their airspace.
American defense officials were also reported to be keen that Iran's Arab neighbors prepare to deal with any Iranian attempt to target them in return.
