Intervening in the Middle East is a lot like kicking a hornet’s nest.
The complex and deep-seated hatred that exists between warring factions of middle eastern nations has long given the impression that each and every conflict on the face of the planet likely has an origin here.
To make matters worse, political hackery that ran rampant in the Barack Obama administration allowed for nations such as Iran to cut major deals with the western world. Now, the unkempt and angry Persians are again threatening the United States after President Donald Trump rescinded just such sweetheart negotiations.
This has led US military leaders to fortify our defenses in the region.
U.S. Air Force B-52 bombers ordered by the White House to deploy to the Persian Gulf to counter unspecified threats from Iran arrived at a major American air base in Qatar early Friday morning.
Images released by the U.S. Air Force’s Central Command show B-52H Stratofortress bombers on the ground at Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar.
Others landed at an undisclosed location late Wednesday in “southwest Asia,” the Air Force said. The U.S. military in the past has described its presence at both the Al Dhafra Air Base in the United Arab Emirates and Al Udeid as “southwest Asia.”
The Air Force identified the aircraft as coming from the 20th Bomb Squadron of Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana.
The move comes just days after the Trump administration announced that a massive US carrier group would also travel to the region in a show of force for the Iranian regime.
