Saudi Arabia and Gulf states have agreed to deploy U.S. forces to deter Iran
Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states have agreed to a request for a renewed deployment of US forces
With all the chatter of US aligning for another false flag to precipitate preemptive strikes on Iran, it appears House of Saud has agreed to 'deploy US forces' to Iran.
Blatant dirty-sock puppetry confirmed!
Who are they kidding, Lindsey Graham?
Lindsey Graham admits Saudi Arabia is US puppet
With the Israelis deeply in control of Congress, how could Graham have ponied up to the table to take on Netanyahu’s most important tool, after the US, for using the Saudis as a piggy bank and cannon fodder for getting a war going with Iran?
So why? Lindsey explained:
“Let me put it this way — I want to be very blunt with you: If it weren’t for the United States, they’d be speaking Farsi in about a week in Saudi Arabia,” Graham said.
Where have we heard that 'Would be speaking...' before? More like if the Saxe-Coburgs didnt change to Windsor, we'd still be speaking German in UK & US.
Since Iran actually opposes ISIS, NATO can't use the 'going after ISIS' excuse with Iran so got creative and expect masses to believe US forces will do Saud's bidding... au contraire

Gulf War vet here.
Not a gulf war vet am I... yet am capable looking back upon history and can credibly ask why you were there...
With the best-equipped armed forces in the Gulf region, Saudi Arabia is a major player in Middle Eastern affairs. But just how strong is its military?
Saudi Arabia has a defense budget of $76.7 billion—giving the oil-rich nation a significant advantage over its regional rivals Israel and Iran, which have respective budgets of $18.5 billion and $8 billion.
The kingdom has invested heavily in recent years and in 2014 was the world’s biggest importer of defense equipment. The majority of weapons come from U.S. companies, with the U.K. and Spain in second and third place.
A 2017 arms deal with President Donald Trump saw Riyadh commit to purchasing $350 billion worth of U.S. weapons over the next 10 years.
The country has an estimated 688,000 active personnel, with 227,000 troops, 600 heavy tanks, 780 light armored vehicles and 1,423 armored troop carriers.
Iran reprotedly has more than 523,000 personnel on active service, comprising 350,000 in the army, including 220,000 conscripts. The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, viewed as the most loyal guardians of the ruling system, has a further 125,000 soldiers.

Every last man, woman, child and goat but would you want to personally execute millions of women, babies, and old men? You can't do it alone of course but would you be willing to kill some everyday?
At some time in the afternoon, you just go and shoot women and little Iranian kids in the head one by one. Sounds like a just cause and fun, wouldn't bother me at all.
