Saudi Arabia’s King Salman approved hosting U.S. forces in the country to boost regional security and stability.

The U.S. Defense Department confirmed the move in a statement, saying it would deploy troops and resources to Saudi Arabia to “provide an additional deterrent” in the face of “emergent, credible threats.”

The gesture comes amid rising tensions between Washington and Tehran in the Gulf that have impacted global oil markets.

Iran said it had seized a British oil tanker in the Strait of Hormuz, but denied Washington’s assertion that the U.S. Navy had downed an Iranian drone nearby earlier this week.

A U.S. official said the deployment would include about 500 U.S. military personnel in Saudi Arabia, and is part of a boost in the number of U.S. troops in the Middle East that the Pentagon announced last month.



  1. Show up, let them know we mean business and will turn their desert into OUR Oil Fields. Let them work for us if they are any left alive after we kick their arrogant asses.

    • We should have “slapped them down” in 1979, when Iranian students broke into our US Embassy and took 66 hostages, keeping them for 444 days, all while “jimmy peanuts” occupied the oval office. The latter was totally ineffective. in the role of President of the US and was not able to negotiate the release of those hostages. The minute Ronald Reagan took office, Iran let our citizens go, because they knew President Reagan was NOT one to fool around and he would spare them no insults, NOR injuries, unless they acted quickly – -and they did. It is now time for President Trump to take the same tack and LET THEM HAVE BOTH BARRELS (so to speak), or give them a huge gift, like a MOAB, or TWO!

  2. We must show the I-AH TOILET that we mean business. Now that we have fighter jets in their back yard we should and must destroy their chase boats and destroy all of them. They can’t continue being a thorn in our backside. Is they want to continue being a nuisance we could destroy their fuel farms and the ports where they store and offload fuel onto tankers. They rely on the sale of fuel to survive. Without the revenue that oil affords them they are out of business. If the I-AH TOILET is dumb enough to start something and we respond to his stupidity he will think that that the 6 day war with Israel lasted for years. I find it hard to believe that he would sacrifice his people in a war he has less than no chance win.

    • Actually, the “I-AH TOILET” (I like that analogy-lol) has no qualms about “sacrificing” anyone – -other than himself.

  3. President Trump has excellent advisors in the Military and he is only following their advice as to how to react to the recent activities by Iran. The President has made it very clear what Iran will face once they push the U.S. too far and I guess they have not met that “threshold” yet. Notice that it was not an AMERICAN tanker they attacked. I actually think it is wise that the President is waiting to see what the U.K. will do. This way if the U.K. chooses to take military action the Left won’t be able to blame him when war breaks out.
