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.

These are substantial quick reaction forces, not to be taken lightly.
It’s not wise to give your enemy ALL the information he needs to prepare for you.
Better that much of it is kept quiet anyways.
I love how this information is coming out at night.
When Congress is not in session so the dems can stew over it all sleepless night.
LOL, there is NO WAY in hell Iran could prepare for what would be headed their way!!!
This is all Pentagon information.
They are not hiding this for obvious reasons.
They want Iran to know what could await them.
Yup, I would not have advertised any of these logistics. The rats will scamper back to their nests waiting for us to return back to base, so to speak.
I want to know how many EOS infiltrators are operating on the MX border or in our major cities with US citizenship.
Who or what agency is in high gear for this front?
For how long. Another 40 years?
We may find out.
But it would just seal the fate of their host country.
surely we’ll be greeted as liberators
“Another 40 years?”
The strategy has changed.
I don’t anticipate a single US boot on Iranian soil. In fact, if Iran doesn’t make good on their threats, there likely won’t be any shooting at all.
But if they do, hell will rain down upon them.
Yeah kinda what I recall. Shhhhhhhhh!
Yeah, right... /s
Yeah... Hopefully wed MOAB and fuel-air-vapor bomb the equivalent of their White House and Congress in session.
Ah, not when the enemy can’t do a darn thing about it.
It’s an insane mismatch and just doesn’t matter.
Like the mother of all tank wars with Iraq
Re: your 2
Yeah, I understand and fully agree, but there really isn’t much Iran can do without any force they have doing suicide attacks.
I got the call this morning to show up in full Italian sweat suit gear with my Louisville slugger.
Being logistics I was told to bring cold beer and sandwiches.
You’re got the most important role!!
At least to me :)
