President Donald Trump has ordered some US Troops and US Missiles to be sent to Saudi Arabia according to a statement by Defense Secretary Esper at the Pentagon just minutes ago.


Developing.  Check back for updates.



Defense Secretary Esper: “The Iranian regime is waging a deliberate campaign to destabilize the Middle East.”

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Gen. Joseph Dunford, also present at Pentagon briefing for press.

“All indications are Iran was responsible for the attack” on Saudi Aramco facilities.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper also announced U.S. forces will be sent to Saudi Arabia and UAE, calling them "defensive in nature and primarily focused on air and missile defense."

Military equipment too.

Dunford says numbers not decided yet, but will be a "moderate deployment." 

Decision on the specifics of the "moderate deployment" to be made over the weekend and details will be announced next week, according to JCS Chairman Gen. Dunford.



Internally, several officials were advocating for a limited military strike and options were considered. But today, Trump indicated he did not want to do that.

    I wonder if sending additional US troops is to protect Msb from a coop? And sending 3 Patriot systems that do not work is possibly shrouding why the troops are really going to Saudi.

    No, Trump doesn't want Iranian casualties. Hardly.
    But we would like the Iranian leadership, rounded-up, detained, and eventually incarcerated. Trouble makers, all.
    Iran is not the innocent party here, hardly.
    They covet confrontation, thereby proving to themselves, once and for all, that they are all they think themselves to be. But they are frauds, intellectually, spiritually, and especially, morally.

      Incarcerated, hell! Incinerated. The bulk of the raghead troublemakers are headed that way anyhow; just hasten it along. Obnoxious children, all; in need of a sever spanking.

    I saw this wreckage and it looks just like a NATO missile. Since when did the Iranians start labeling their missiles with English? This is the "deep state" creating their false flag scenario just like they did in Afghanistan, Libya, Iraq and Syria. NONE of these places had anything to do with terror or 911. It was all over the "petro dollar", except for Afghanistan which was cutting off the CIA's supply of heroin.

    "“The Iranian regime is waging a deliberate campaign to destabilize the Middle East.”"
    How dare they! The U.S. is the only country allowed to do that!

      Brain dead much? Protecting the nation's energy supply is supposed to be destabilization? What does your Mercedes run on? Got a spare pair of Nikes, do ya'?

    It's only a matter of time before Trump
    gets us sucked into a war with Iran.
    Not going to go well for either side.
    America has delusional thoughts that it
    can whip the world.

      When were you in the military? We sure could when I was. And we sure can now.

    Hal, another part of the reason for this buildup is because Russia, being sick and tired of the bullshit from your beloved zionist state, is actively blocking and targeting attacks by your beloved zionist state on Syria.........

    And the specific articles..........

    Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia displays wreckage from the missiles that hit their refinery. Guess who actually made all of it? Not Iran, but NATO. So embarassing that you will never read of this on the Western MSM.

    In other words Hal, the military buildup of material, equipment and manpower into the Middle East continues apace.
