Posted on 01/06/2020 10:13:53 PM PST by Mariner
The U.S. military is pouring troops into the Middle East as it prepares to deal with fallout from the killing of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani. Soleimani was killed by U.S. forces on January 3, 2020. Iran and Iranian-backed militias throughout the region have promised revenge for the attack on one of Irans most senior military figures. In response, the Pentagon is flowing ground, air, and sea forces into the area, including Army Rangers and Super Hornet strike fighters.
The buildup actually began on December 31, 2019, when protests organized by Iranian-backed militias threatened the U.S. embassy in Baghdad. U.S. Central Command deployed Special Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Forces Crisis ResponseCentral Command (SPMAGTF CR-CC), a company of approximately 100 Marines and MV-22 Osprey tiltrotor aircraft designed to provide a quick reaction force for U.S. forces and facilities throughout the region.

Ann Coulter is (as usual) fit to be tied about all of this.
that reminds me of the pic posted here recently where a guy is standing in his front yard with a shotgun and yelling.
The caption was: America - Back to back world war winners.
What is being released is approved for release by the Pentagon. They are still withholding information about other military assets.
I like that :)
i’ve actually seen a fight at a club on Staten Island where an idiot Italian was waving a gun in front of a nightclub and a paesano came up behind him with a bat and cancelled Christmas on the guy with the gun.
I guess the lesson is a guy with a bat that is willing to use it is more dangerous than a guy with a gun who isn’t.
Back on track...:)..Donald Trump will fight a war to WIN.
It will be like WWI and II again.
Nothing half way.
God Bless Him.
Pakistan and India are importing a special curry mix to attack Iran from within. /s
In other words iran is NOT a threat to us in any meaningful way. So what the Fuuk are we doing?
Why are we suddenly believing the same deep state intelligence services that have been undermining President Trump for three years? Impeachment is not working so the deep state is at work dragging us into a phony war with a country that is ZERO threat to the United States. I wonder how many pallets of cash and gold coins will end up in iran if this works and Trump loses the election?
This nonsense had better end right here or it could cost Trump a second term. Wake up people, you are being played. Prepare to play find the non existent WMDs.
Those sandwiches will be gluten free so the libs should be OK with this deployment.
Then count me out!! :)
BTW, does anyone know if gluten free affects the taste of food?
I’m pretty sure if you ask for Gluten free in an Italian restaurant on Staten Island, 2 guys named Luigi and Rocco take you into the alley, break your arms and call the ambulance and say you were hit by a car :)
It's not that they can't do anything. We are operating in an area where they have the ability to attack us. Ship's and aircraft in the Persian Gulf, bases in Bahrain, Kuwait, Iraq, Qatar. All can be attacked with weapons that can be difficult to stop 100%. The question is if they are willing to absorb the massive damage we would bring with our retaliation. Don't assume our bases, ships and aircraft are invincible. But Khamenei has to know, Trump isn't bluffing.
It IS such a joke, the MSM is such a joke, the CIA is a joke, the FBI is a joke WHY in the HELL anyone that has even half a brain would listen to them is BEYOND me!!! I know in my heart that it was MOSSAD that gave us the intel on this terrorist general and his crew, there s NO WAY our CIA could find their way out of a wet paper bag NOR would they if it meant helping OUR country in any way, the deep state HATES AMERICA!!!
Yeah I should’t get too cocky.
I guess I still remember that BRUTAL beating Iraq’s 4 THOUSAND tanks took.
I think they got one or two of ours in the gulf war ground battle.
Just ODDS would make one think they’d have destroyed a few hundred of ours.
Trump owns Putin. He got the green light. Iran is going down.
“Yeah... Hopefully wed MOAB and fuel-air-vapor bomb the equivalent of their White House and Congress in session.”
The high value targets are Iran’s nuclear facilities. Those would go, and the naval facilities that they use for causing trouble in the Gulf. I seriously doubt that we would want to wipe out their government because unlike Dubya’s crowd no one else lives in fantasyland where you can magically transform an ancient muslim society into America.
IIRC we lost one Bradley Fighting Vehicle in the biggest tank battle since WWII
The enemy these days pretty much knows what the opposition has - that knowledge is not as important as knowing the order in which those assets will be used, aka the Order of Battle.
We know where their nests are.
IIRC, the was a friendly fire incident. THEY never laid a glove on us.
I want that minaret with the red war flag hoisted on top of it in Qom turned into rubble.
I don’t care if it inflames them. They’ve inflamed me.
Strange though... is Popular Mechanics the only single source to this story? Others too busy with impeachment BS?
