Qatar, Oman set for missile deals in 2013

Mukhtar

Missile deal or no missile deal is totally irrelevant, the Arabian Gulf countries and the whole Middle East are not naive, they know well enough that Iran cannot be trusted PERIOD!

" I DO assure you that we know more about your region than you think you do, cos we study facts not fear and fiction."

This is like us saying that we know more aboot hockey and maple syrup than you people. Sorry but I'm not going to bother arguing with that mentality. Eh !

Iran had not invaded any country in my life time - and well before that too. Whereas the US has invaded countless countries in my short lifetime :)

I know better than to wear the fear cap and write out cheques to Raytheon...

@ Sam: You might want to ask the Emiratis about Greater and Lesser Tunbs and Abu Musa. At the same time I'd see if there's anything you can do about removing that rather prominent and embarrasing chip from your shoulder.

Qatar and Oman have every right to defend against potential enemies.Canada does not feel the threat on a daily basis as dose Qatar and Oman even Press News in Iran feels war is a possibility and are preparing for it.

@Qatari
That's funny. I assure you that me being "half way around the world" has NO bearing whatsoever on Iran's or the US's Foreign Policy. Also, I DO assure you that we know more about your region than you think you do, cos we study facts not fear and fiction.

But your statement does manifest exactly why Raytheon can sell to you guys so easily. If we could all have gullible customers like you guys, we would be very rich people indeed - I am sure Raytheon soon will be anyways.

And really, I don't blame Raytheon for doing "creative marketing" - after all as the saying goes: "anything to get a sale closed".

Qatari

Maybe because you're half way around the world.
