Ranking the top military powers of the Persian Gulf region.
The Persian Gulf remains one of the most volatile regions on the planet and home to much of the world's oil reserves. Top players include the Saudi Kingdom and Iran which consistently meet head-to-head, either through direct and in-direct means. This results in powers such as the United States retaining a precense in an effort to deter long-time enemy Iran while supporting Saudi Arabia in turn, all the while continuing its costly rebuild of the war-torn nation of Iraq.
