BREAKING NEWS: US announces they are deploying more troops to Saudi Arabia and the UAE in response to the strikes on oil field

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/articl ... ssion=true
US Army trains loaded with Tanks and Bradley's are driving through areas normally never used before, across the nation like they are getting ready for something very large. These sightings are coming from former Army Tankers who have never seen any trains on these old tracks yet here comes miles of military trains like they are showing up out of a somewhat non disclosed reserve area they were never told about. These trains were seen in Kansas heading east. They fear something a lot bigger than Desert Storm is getting ready to happen.
I can confirm this Based on my own visual however we are a main hub for trans continental railroad lines where NTC, national training center, transports a lot of their military vehicles through For annual unit training.
After seeing a loooong train of Abrams Tanks headed toward the Gulf of Mexico earlier this week, I have been looking at videos posted of military trains in the last week. The two main bases in Texas to my knowledge are Ft Hood (Central Texas), and Ft Bliss (El Paso) so trains moving to NTC from those two bases would not be headed to the Gulf of Mexico. I saw a video posted of a long train of Abrams tanks headed south through Lubbock, Tx. Where would those be coming from? Ft Carson? And where are they headed? To the Gulf as well? Lots of questions.

Addendum: Ft Carson (Colorado) and Ft Riley (Kansas) deploy to Port of Hampton Roads (Virginia) which would explain eastbound trains through Kansas. Ft Sill (Oklahoma) deploys to Beaumont, which doesn't exactly explain trains through Lubbock, but you never know. I also saw some videos of southbound trains in Taylors, South Carolina which were possibly headed to the Port of Charleston. There was also a video of a train in Garner, NC possibly headed to the Port of Morehead.

You can see the Sea Ports of Embarkation/Debarkation here, which will give an idea of where trains might be headed:

"Loose lips sink ships" = "beware of unguarded talk". All this talk about equipment and troop movement from where to where may be dangerous as other nation's citizens come to the "The Defcon Warning System" message board also.

President Trump: "Nothing's ever off the table, completely, but I have no intention of meeting with Iran and that doesn't mean it doesn't happen. I'm a very flexible person."

I couldn't agree more. I think this kind of talk on here should be highly discouraged.

The movement of assets across the US is hardly classified information, and as has been already discussed, the videos are already on YouTube. Discussing that information here is well within our bounds of OSINT, and believe me is nothing our Iranian friends don't already know via Russian SATINT.

Crossing the line would be to discuss intelligence received through non-OSINT methods, such as "My brother is being deployed to Kuwait for a major operation into Iran in two weeks." THAT kind of talk would not only be discouraged, it would most likely be deleted from the board.
