American Buildup in Middle East

Are we about to get ourselves entangled in yet another endless war. Iranian proxies in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Yemen have attacked United States or coalition forces around 40 times since Hamus attacked Israel.

These Iranian proxies have been firing mortar rounds, rocket barrages, and suicide drones at American troops since the start of the Israeli-Hamus war. To date as many as 45 U.S. personnel have been injured in the month-long series of strikes.

Question is, should American troops even be in those areas where in-fighting and civil wars have been ongoing for thousands of years.

Since Hamas’ brutal attack on Israel on October 7, the Department of Defense has deployed military troops into the area and has given initial deployment orders to almost 20,000 troops; hundreds of American strike-fighter aircraft have been deployed to the region; four carrier battle groups, with a massive fleet of destroyers, cruisers, battleships and submarines are also in the area on standby; and, a Marine amphibious carrier full of helicopters and Marine Corps units is also floating off the coast of Israel.

Senators Lindsay Graham and Richard Blumenthal indicated their support should President Biden give the greenlight to attack Iran should one of two events occur. The two Senators announced, in an CNN interview, a new across-the-aisle resolution that calls for the United States to attack Iran in the event their proxies are successful in killing any American personnel, or that a U.S. strike on the Persians would be justified in the event of a Hezbollah-led onslaught against the Jewish State in Northern Israel.

On November 3, Hezbollah’s leader warned that Hezbollah forces are prepared to join in the war against Israel. With Biden as Commander-in-Chief, Hezbollah and Iran are feeling embolden which may ignite WWIII.
