Along with the carrier strike group being sent to the Middle East, the Pentagon is deploying an additional assault ship and Patriot missiles to the region. All to defend America from Iranian aggression.
The Pentagon announced Friday that it is deploying an amphibious assault ship and a Patriot missile battery to the Middle East to bolster an aircraft carrier force sent to counter alleged threats from Iran.
The USS Arlington, which transports marines, amphibious vehicles, conventional landing craft and rotary aircraft, and the Patriot air defense system will join the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group and a B-52 bomber task force headed toward the Gulf after intelligence reports suggested Iran was planning some sort of attack in the region.
The deployment is “in response to indications of heightened Iranian readiness to conduct offensive operations against US forces and our interests,” the Pentagon said in a statement.
“The Department of Defense continues to closely monitor the activities of the Iranian regime, their military and proxies,” it said.
“The United States does not seek conflict with Iran, but we are postured and ready to defend US forces and interests in the region.”
It’s really terrible how Iran has decided to position their country around all the countries that America has invaded on behalf of Israel. They should have placed their country in an area that would not be around countries that America planned on invading for Jews.
So yes, it makes perfect sense why Donald Trump and the neocons he’s filled his government with would send military assets to counter Iran. They are truly acting aggressively by having the nerve to have their country in an area that is inconvenient for Jews.
This is a very noble self defense effort. We have to fight them over there so we don’t fight them here even though our border is more open than the vagina of a 40-year-old adult film star.
