Projecting force to protect us all

So the Americans are setting up a missile shield in the Gulf, to protect the allies of the West, including Saudi Arabia, against the threat from Iran.

I’ve been concerned for a while about a nation in the grip of fundamentalist Islam, with only scant respect for democratic process and which rides roughshod over human rights at the slightest provocation.  Its role in fostering some of the worst terrorists the world has seen makes it a particularly worrying player on the international stage.

That being said, Iran is just as bad.
