It's possible that they're moving as part of routine movements. Units that are there now being replaced. But no, this won't be a large strike even if they're reinforcements. They're talking 24 aircraft in all.

The US military always needs some threats to fight or contend with and spend workhours, ammo and equipment on to justify their inflated budgets. If they can't find a decent fight to inflame and hype in the media, just pick one with someone (countries like Iran or North Korea are always eager to oblige, since they operate so similarly in this regards; as in their military industrial complex calling the shots and having massive influence on how the country's resources and finances are spent, who will get the most, as well as the political impact it has to have a clear enemy outside of the country and making themselves appear needed to combat this enemy, increasing their own popularity amongst the public, tied in with nationalism and patriotism). It works much like this:

Seemed appropiate to mention with the Falling Down picture used by the OP.

Eleven troops suffered concussions and possible TBIs. They were flown to Germany for tests.

The area around Turkey last night was insanely busy with the air bridge. Seemed like every type imaginable was in the air at the same time going every direction.

Taking the Marines out of an embassy??

It looked like they are still moving equipment in. At least one French C-135, a couple of our tankers on airlift missions, and a bunch of other stuff.
