""""President Donald Trump approves deployment of US forces to Saudi Arabia, UAE after attack on oil facilities."""
WASHINGTON (AP) The Latest on the U.S. response to attacks on the Saudi oil industry (all times local):
The Pentagon says the U.S. will deploy additional troops and military equipment to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to beef up security, as President Donald Trump has at least for now decided against any immediate military strike on Iran in response to the attack on the Saudi oil industry.

Bit of a misleading headline.
Yeah. PRAYERS TO NOT SEND THEM!!!
They should have been sent in but 18 years ago on a search and destroy mission!!
Here’s where some “person” will tell me we need to address the political realities of the day and not realized how much they sound like a dem and/or a b.tch
Its the right thing to do.
Great for America, the region and 2020.
These are missile defense techs. Good move.
I posted this a few days ago on a different FR thread:
Saudi Arabia has led the worlds nations in buying weapons in the last two years. Surely they can do a decent job of defending their own oil supply without having us jump in.
A bunch of sources on the internet...some for/against. But really interesting information about Saudi buying up huge amounts of weapons from us.
What happens when Radicals overthrow the House of Saud and get their hands on those weapons?
US troops on that particular Islamic soil is going to trigger a bunch of Muzzies. I could only support such a mission if the army was going to sieze Mecca, even then a thermonuclear nuke would be better.
nuke ‘em then take their oil
I thought President Trump fired John Bolton. I guess not. Here we go.
Im done sending American troops into s-hole Mideast countries.
“What happens when Radicals overthrow the House of Saud and get their hands on those weapons?”
As the Saudis and multiple others have demonstrated, without rigorous training, strident discipline and voluminous practice these weapons, though the best in world, are worthless.
Even if Iran captured all the F-15s, still the second best fighter in the world, they would not be able to employ them effectively.
And they’d be down to 6 of ‘em in a month. None flyable in 6 months.
The same goes for the Patriot Batteries.
The only thing they would be able to keep running are the jeeps and trucks. But as soon as a turbine goes out on a M1A1 tank, they’d have to leave it where it is.
Are we giving them the weapons or are we setting up multi-layer air defense using our men?
Prayers for our men and women for their safety, and I hope Trump gets a financial reimbursal from the Saudis.
Good question. Guess House of Saud wants to be prepared for radicals, but who knows what could happen in time.
pure guess, there’s more behind this than the story they’re putting out for our consumption
like, maybe we’re finally taking charge over there (especially the damned oil we’ve been protecting for so long)
and in which case, PDJT may finally be flushing the corrupt and evil House of Saud/
just a guess
we will see
With little training they destroyed the World Trade Centers.
It’s like sending ‘advisers’ to Saigon.
let the Sauds take care of their problem, they have an airforce and a military.
