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. - ZeroHedge: Jordan Prepares For Syrian Fallout; Places Air Force On High Alert
