GCC Has Insufficient BMD
WASHINGTON [MENL] -- Despite nearly $20 billion in orders, the Gulf
Cooperation Council remains without sufficient assets to foil an Iranian
missile war, a report said.
The Washington Institute for Near East Policy asserted that the six GCC
states have not acquired sufficient batteries and systems to defend against
Iran. In a report, senior researcher Michael Eisenstadt said Iran was
capable of overcoming the current deployment of U.S. ballisic missile
defense systems as well as those ordered by GCC militaries.
