Those sources estimate that 10,000 US troops are now deployed at the two bases.

    When the marines are brought in, they come with armor, artillery, and air cover. Something is brewing.

      Yes it is. The US backed out of a treaty. Now threats are flying. Iran needs to be totally still …. not say a word. Bolton and the pentagon have the comm and are getting ready to wipe Iran up … with a hit in Tehran. Iran’s mullahs are in non stop proxy war and it will shortly come back to them where they live. Look at the stream of intel and data the past month. Iran needs to renegotiate or they will be a stain on the ground if they up uranium refinement one tiny bit. This is a serious situation – read the tea leaves.
