US military officials overseeing Middle East ops requested up to 13,000 additional troops, officials said. The 2,000 to 3,000 troops officials agreed to send are expected to be the first of what may be a larger deployment.
President Trump has also approved more Patriot missile defense batteries & reconnaissance aircraft, in addition to the ground troops.
Discussions under way for more to support submarines, planes, drones, and anti-missile batteries.

Now, it is a sad reality that tens-of-thousands of people visit this site every day, and fewer than a hundred bother to make a donation. I don't know why that is, but that's the way it is.
If every one of those folks donated two or three bucks, this site would be just fine for months! They don't.
So I am counting on YOU. Yes, YOU.
I've had a rough month after my heart attack on April 20, and the subsequent open-heart surgery on April 25 wherein I got a quadruple bypass of four clogged cardiac arteries. Despite that, I've done shows, updated this site and somehow managed to get through the very real (and often severe) pain that such surgery causes. I think I've shown, by my actions, that YOU can count on Me. Now I pray that I can count on you.
PLEASE make a donation. Every little bit helps.
If neither donating, nor Subscribing is for you, then please at least click one of the 12 ads below. This site will earn two or three cents per click (no purchase necessary) and that will help pay for the bandwidth data transfer cost for the article you just read. At least you'll be helping!
