The Pentagon is considering sending troops to the Middle East
The Pentagon is considering the possibility of sending additional troops to the Middle East. This was stated by Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan.
“We are studying whether we can do something to strengthen the protection of our troops in the Middle East. This may include sending additional troops, ”The New York Times quoted him as saying.
At the same time, Shanakhan did not specify the number of the military, which the Pentagon may additionally send to the region against the background of the situation around Iran.
Earlier, US President Donald Trump said that Washington does not currently see the need for additional military contingent to the Middle East because of Iran, but such a decision, according to the American leader, can be made.
