Iran’s latest affront to world peace has US scrambling more troops to the Middle East
The strategic maneuver belies the serious nature of the threat that Iran poses.
The waters of the Persian Gulf are growing ever more turgid by the moment.
Iran, that grand bastion of anti-American vitriol of the Middle East, is at it again. This time, they are protesting the recent reversal of an Obama era nuclear “deal”, rescinded by President Trump months ago. With the end of the agreement, new sanctions were also placed on Iran, backing the desperate regime into a corner.
Now, as they lash out with increasingly bold attacks on the oil industry of the Middle East, American forces are preparing to patrol the area.
THE US is preparing to send 500 troops to Saudi Arabia to front up to the growing Iran threat, it was reported last night.
They will be deployed to a remote base east of the Saudi capital Riyadh, according to two US defence officials.
The move will fortify the growing Prince Sultan Air Base – which is being heavily built-up with a Patriot missile defence battery and an improved runway, CNN reported.
It’s hoped that fifth-generation F-22 stealth jets and other fighters will be flown from the base to strike Iranian targets should war break out, the unnamed officials said.
US military chiefs believe the site is well protected from Iranian attack because of its remote desert location.
Iran had previously attacked oil tankers in the Strait of Hormuz and Saudi Arabian pipeline locations before this week seizing a foreign oil tanker and crew.
President Trump has repeatedly called for a nonviolent, diplomatic resolution to the disagreement – something that Iran seems hellbent on skipping.
