From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Naval forces begin military exercises

Monday 16th January 2017

BRITISH and United Arab Emirates (UAE) naval forces began military exercises yesterday as threatening actions towards nearby Iran continued.

The UAE sits near the mouth of the Persian Gulf and the strategic Strait of Hormuz, through which passes nearly a third of all the oil traded by sea.

The current “Sea Dagger” exercises may be meant to intimidate Iran, which lies on the northern side of the Persian Gulf.

United States warships have recently fired warning shots at Iranian vessels.

Britain is massively expanding its military presence is the Gulf, establishing the £30 million HMS Jufair naval base in Bahrain.

This country is a strong backer of the repressive UAE, which was cobbled together in the 1970s when Britain couldn’t afford to keep troops in what was a “protectorate” designed to exert control over the oil-producing region.

UAE forces are equipped with British weapons and 4,000 Emirati troops are deployed as part of the Saudi Arabian-led coalition’s bloodbath in Yemen.
