U.S. Beefs Up Persian Gulf Missile Defenses

The United States is adding Patriot missile batteries in the Persian Gulf to contain the Iranian threat. America already provided advanced missile defense systems to four Arab nations in Gulf region, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Qatar.

America also provides missile defense for Israel. I thought President George W. Bush would contain the blowback after an Israeli strike on Iran. It's now Obama's shift. Is it in the budget?

"Overseas contingency operations"—are projected to increase by $46 billion over 2010-2011

$46 billion could buy and deliver many bunker busting bombs.
