Some more precisions on the deployments.

Could Iran be bracing for war?

More servicemen have been deployed to the Omani island of Masirah where a US military base is operating. Additionally, more than 10,000 US soldiers have been stationed in Israel to test this Middle Eastern country’s missile defense system. Another 15,000 US servicemen have been stationed in Kuwait.

Hundreds of concrete-piercing bombs have been delivered to a US military base on the Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean, and two US aircraft carrier battle groups are currently on a mission in the Gulf. They are expected to be strengthened by one more aircraft carrier, the Annapolis nuclear-powered submarine and a Momsen destroyer. A US military base in Qatar already sees the stationing of several bombers, cargo planes and long-range drones. In the meantime, France and Britain have also dispatched their troops to the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia.


That's a LOT of hardware.
