US Iran standoff: Assault ship How long Iran can stand against 2 days ago   04:51

DW News
The United States is deploying an assault ship and a missile battery to the Persian Gulf to bolster other military vessels already in the area. The US said the move is in response to a possible threat to US forces in the region by Iran, but didn't specify the nature of that threat. Iran has dismissed the claim. The newly deployed vessels are the USS Arlington, which transports marines and conventional landing craft, as well as the Patriot air defense system. They will join the USS Abraham Lincoln carrier that's already there. Though US President Donald Trump campaigned against wars in the Middle East, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Advisor John Bolton are noted hawks. So who is making the decisions?

Democrats are forcing us into an unwanted war. We need to stop this. Support the troops not the government

Inside Info here : the same drone that shot the missile that hit the Japanese freighter , killing 80, was also the unmanned drone that Iran shot down when it was clearly in their airspace. The only hop for the world is the destruction of Israel

Ppl blaming Wahabhi Arabs and USA for distorting peace in Iran like they did in Syria, Iraq, Libya, Afghan etc ppl shud understand USA army men didn't lynch Gaddafi on street it was he's own ppl.. Similarly Saddam Hussein liked lacs of innocents he was a rogue leader.. IRG soldiers are running havoc in Iran it's a fact.. Iran is a rogue state ppls voice is suppressed thr like in Turkey..
