(The Guardian) Trump confirms plan to send 1,500 additional troops to Middle East
The Trump administration notified Congress today that it plans to send about 1,500 additional troops to the Middle East amid heightened tensions with Iran, officials said.

Members of Congress were notified a day after a White House meeting to discuss Pentagon proposals to bolster the US force presence in the Middle East.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the troop plans have not yet been formally announced, the AP reported.

The forces would number “roughly” 1,500 and would deploy in the coming weeks “with their primary responsibilities and activities being defensive in nature,” according to a copy of the notification obtained by The Associated Press.

Their mission would include protecting U.S. forces already in the region and ensuring freedom of navigation, the notification said.
Earlier this week, officials said Pentagon planners had outlined plans that could have sent up to 10,000 military reinforcements to the region.

Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan later said planners hadn’t settled on a figure.

Don’t think Trump wants a war, but I sure wish we weren’t sending any troops over there. Give the least craziest ones the weapons over there and get the hell out.

Listening to Clark, I didn’t have a problem with us going into Iraq I had a problem with us not finishing it. We should have leveled everything killed Saddam and went home.

I think it would be the same war as long as we don’t stay long term that’s when we lose Americans
the fight with iran will be more tougher than iraq americans will be lost from the start of it and most likely some british soldiers too since we always seem to follow the US when they say jump

Every war we lose soldiers and again I’d rather just completely pull out of the entire region but if we did go in it would go just like the first Iraq war did on how fast we took them out. There anti air craft defenses would be taken out within a week. We would over run them with our more advanced tanks within weeks. Our war hardened troops with better training and equipment would have the country in months. And we would have the people of Iran backing us this time.

The Iranian people are not like Iraq they really want to control their own destiny that’s why they have tried twice to overthrow the regime. We just can’t stay there after we win that’s when we face real problems

Yes Russia with a economy the size of a average American state. They have a struggling economy and they can’t afford to fund Iran. So yes this will be like Iraq.
