Biden begins the withdrawal of part of the American military contingent from the Middle East

20

American President Joe Biden ordered to reduce the size of the American military contingent in the Persian Gulf, starting the withdrawal of personnel and weapons. This was reported by The Wall Street Journal.


According to the newspaper, three batteries of Patriot anti-aircraft systems have already been withdrawn from the Persian Gulf region, and one of them was previously deployed in Saudi Arabia. Following the Patriots, it is planned to withdraw the THAAD missile defense system, but a decision on this has not yet been made.

In addition to the air defense system, according to Washington's plans, "a number of reconnaissance systems" will be moved from the Middle East, the period of stay in this region of the AUG at the head of the US nuclear aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower, which goes to the Persian Gulf, but stopped in the Eastern Mediterranean, will be shortened.

Meanwhile, the aircraft carrier's wing has begun sorties in support of Operation Unwavering Determination in Syria and Iraq.

An aircraft carrier strike group, led by the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier Dwight D. Eisenhower, began flights in support of Operation Unwavering Determination from the eastern Mediterranean on 31 March. Our strike group is ready and capable of direct long-range combat aviation support

- said the commander of the 8th attack aircraft carrier group (UAG) Rear Admiral Scott Robertson.

In command of the 6th fleet The US Navy stressed that the presence of an aircraft carrier group led by USS Dwight D. Eisenhower "demonstrates the US Navy's ability to support Operation Resolute Determination from multiple theaters, as evidenced by the mobility, flexibility and ability of US aircraft carrier strike groups to project force."

Next, the AUG should proceed to the Persian Gulf, where the French carrier group headed by the aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle is already located.

        This is another regrouping of the US Armed Forces in the BV region - and nothing more.

        Question. What exactly are the Stars and Stripes at the head of their pro-American foreign coalition in BV specifically preparing for? Which countries are in the American coalition now? As far as I remember, Germany, invited by Trump, refused to be there.
        And what did the French forget there? This is now a very topical question for Macron.

          If we start with the text (Output) The logical question is where exactly am I transferring them?
          Where are they going to stand now and for what?

          That's for sure: either Trump deduced, now the Bidon deduced ...

          And the troops are still there: in Syria, and in Iraq, etc., etc. ...

    every US president withdraws troops from the Middle East. And they all do not end :) some kind of endless American troops. Or was the platoon officially withdrawn, the battalion secretly brought in?

    Now is the time to start talking about the beginning of the withdrawal of American troops. Empty chatter. These never leave on their own, one cannon will be taken away - four will be brought.

      The main thing to the whole world is to show how good they are, peace-loving, and in vain they consider the states to be occupiers. But in fact, like "cheaters", they shuffle the cards, but as a result, aces and kings remain in place.

    it seems that apart from statements, nothing fundamentally will change ... as were the occupation troops (i.e. where they were not invited) Afghanistan / Iraq / Syria ... will remain so ... they can only escape with massive losses of personnel .. ...

    Take it out okay. Where will they enter? Will they be driven home or transferred to the European theater? Painfully, they began to fuss. And here things do not go, and there are concerns. "Where can the poor peasant go?"

    This is where they took the Patriots, not in dill for an hour? And why did they start the withdrawal from the air defense systems.

    If it diminishes somewhere, then it will certainly be added somewhere. This is zhzhzhzhzh for a reason. I wonder where geographically mattresses decided to strengthen the air defense system? winked
