And here we go again…
Several days ago, I stated that it appeared that our enemies in the Middle East were trying to lure us back into a war on their soil, and we are not one step closer to that happening.
Reports surfaced on Thursday and Friday that 900 troops either have been deployed or have orders to deploy to the Middle East.
Send in the Troops
The reports were confirmed by Pentagon spokesman Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder.
He stated, “These include forces that have been on prepare to deploy orders, and which are deploying from the continental United States.
“Deployed and deploying units include a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense battery from Fort Bliss Texas, Patriot batteries from Fort Sill, Oklahoma, Patriot and Avenger batteries from Fort Liberty, North Carolina, and associated air defense headquarters elements from Fort Bliss and Fort Cavazos, Texas.”
The troops are not going to Israel but will be serving as support for our allies in the area and deterrence.
This deployment is taking place after a series of attacks by drones at two different bases, injuring roughly 20 troops who were staying at these bases.
Iranian-backed groups have promised to ramp up attacks against US forces in the Middle East, so this deployment sounds like it could be the first of many.
Ryder also confirmed that information, stating, “As it relates to these groups, again, we know that these are Iranian-backed militia groups that are supported by Iran, and of course, we hold Iran responsible for these groups.”
Yet, the White House issued a temporary visa for Iran’s Foreign Minister so he could attend a UN meeting in New York City. This, by the way, is the same man who reportedly met with terrorist groups prior to the attack against Israel.
Even while attacking American troops, Joe Biden seems more worried about upsetting Iran than he is about protecting America.
