''US missile shield will protect Persian Gulf democracies''

oxymoron?................From Voice of Russia

''As reported by The New York Times on Wednesday, the United States and its Arab allies are knitting together a regional missile defense system across the Persian Gulf to protect cities, oil refineries, pipelines and military bases from an Iranian attack.

The paper characterizes this as "an enterprise that is meant to send a pointed message to Tehran", and it "becomes more urgent as tensions with Iran rise."
