US plans to send thousands more troops to Saudi Arabia

Pentagon sources reveal that a large number of additional troops, possibly thousands, are to be sent to Saudi Arabia, following the Sept.14 attack on its oil facilities attributed to an Iranian cruise missile-drone attack. No official comment has come from the Pentagon. DEBKAfile: Washington is reassessing its military deployment in the Gulf region, including the role of its aircraft carriers, in the wake of that attack.

        This operation is against deep state, Donnie will secure a settlement with Syria for the Kurd’s after giving Erdogan a bloodied nose, and the European’s step up and take care of the ISIS prisoners.

    Ok, that’s it, there is no point for Iran to have an exit to the Gulf, they have already an exit to the Caspian Sea, it is good enough.

    Looks Like More troops Paid for By Arabia & heading to Mideast. Clearly, Plans Are Being Made Of Some Kind Of Event & Now Turkey Under Threats As Well. Iran Is Standing Alone more Every Day & Does Not Know It, Yet? Another trump trap, The PPK Kurds Are Communists In Turkey & US Congress Backs Them!

    So now the Saudis can kill a few more journalists… trump is a fool and won’t be around much longer. You can’t call everybody names and blame everybody else for your shortcomings and expect to succeed.

      Moishe Rabinu… Not so sure, American People Want Out of the Middle East knowing they cannot Stabilize the Region. American Economy & Western Hemisphere has plenty of Oil & Gas now among America, Canada, Mexico, Ecuador and Venezuela. A New President would be doing the same things. The Mideast has to stabilize itself now. EU, China, India, Pac Rim & Russia need Mideast Oil! America will remain Israel & Arabia Partners & Mutual Interests.

      @Moishe Rabinu:

      Killing some useless journalists is not necessarily a bad thing. Killing Hamas leaders are even better.

    With the trillions of dolars worth of weapons already in the Saudi and all the paid for foreign mercenaries stationed there Bin Stupid is obviously still shaking in his turban. Is this really going to buy Saudis any more security. Anyhow, as long as the US charges Bin Stupid plenty more for this extra service it’s a win win for US jobs and industry.

    where are all the axs#0les who keep saying that Israel wants the US soldiers to help? Israel has never asked for US military help. But look at what Saudi is asking for and getting.
    We dont know if Saudi is paying the USA for military help. as you said, Saudi has Hundreds of Billions of US arms and it would be really bad if the arms fell into the hands of the enema… oops… enemy
