Following last week’s refusal to allow the US to use the nation as a launchpad for Syria strikes, Jordan has placed its air-force, one of the Arab world’s strongest, on high alert in anticipation of “various possibilities.” The show of strength captured in Al-Arabiya’s special access to the Jordanian air-base shows F-16s and multiple Himars truck-mounted rocket-launchers. While Jordan, like so many nations, would prefer the political solution, it is prepared for any emergency.

Via Al-Arabiya,

Jordan has put its forces on high alert ahead of anticipated Western airstrikes against the Syrian regime.

Jordan has said it will not be a launchpad for any foreign military intervention in Syria.

But as the West threatens to strike the regime in Syria in response to the use of chemical weapons, it seems that Jordan’s army is ready for various possibilities.

The Jordanian Air force is one of the strongest in the Arab world, possessing many of the most advanced fighter-jets in the world today.

Jordan is also one of few countries that possess the multiple Himars truck -mounted rocket launchers that exceed 70 kilometers in range and can identify a target within seconds.

A political solution in Syria remains the favorable option for Jordan, but the army says it is prepared to defend the country and its people at any time.
