IRAN: The US Is Sending Thousands Of Troops And Missiles To Israel To Start A War
Jan. 5, 2012
Iran’s state owned media outlet PressTV announced Wednesday that the U.S. troop movement and huge “missile defense drill,” announced December 20, is actually the precursor for war against Iran.
We reported on the deal to bring several thousand U.S. troops, and two advanced missile systems to the country for an unprecedented defense drill in December.
Tensions over the closing of the Strait of Hormuz and U.S. military presence in the Gulf have risen dramatically since, and following the latest round of sanctions signed by Obama, Iran is clearly on the defensive.
PressTV says the drill will begin in January, but the Israeli announcement claims the “largest-ever” missile defense exercise will commence this spring, largely in response to Iran’s nuclear ambitions.
