More On The Way!

Reuters:
For years there have been between 60,000 and 80,000 troops deployed to the U.S. military’s Central Command area of operations, a vast area stretching from Egypt to Afghanistan.

As U.S.-Iranian conflict has brewed in recent weeks - Iranian missiles hit bases housing U.S. troops in Iraq in the latest incident - the Pentagon has been moving thousands of additional forces into the Middle East.

Below is a list of sites where the United States has a significant military presence, according to research institutions and U.S. military websites. The estimated personnel figures were drawn from research institutions including Britain’s International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS).

I was shocked when I looked this up a couple of days ago. Before more were deployed due to the latest 45 blunder.
