Halabja air base: protecting whom?

Posted By admin On July 21, 2011 @ 2:58 pm In Iraq | No Comments

The US is currently constructing a mammoth air base near Halabja, Kurdistan, just 9 miles from the Iranian border.

The base cannot serve to protect Kurdistan against Iran, which can easily move SAM batteries to the border to target Kurdish planes during take-off, when their defensive capabilities are minimal. At such a short distance, Iran can always destroy the air base without allowing the American missile interceptors time to react.

It seems that the base is meant to protect Kurdistan against Shiite Iraq. That would conform to Obama’s plan to break up Libya with the intent of controlling the oil-rich zone.
