U.S. pulls staff from Iraq, says Iran gave 'blessing' for tanker attacks

John Bolton: ‘An Attack On Two Saudi Oil Tankers Is An Attack On All Americans’

I demand an unbiased neutral investigation and I want to see physical and irrefutable evidence that Iran did this. My country, USA, screwed Iraq on the WMDs and lied to us.
But President Trump is frustrated with some of his top advisers, who he thinks could rush the United States into a military confrontation with Iran and shatter his long-standing pledge to withdraw from costly foreign wars, according to several U.S. officials. Trump prefers a diplomatic approach to resolving tensions and wants to speak directly with Iran’s leaders.
Now that should be the headline, the other makes it seem like Trump is the warmonger. Trump is just like Reagan. He wont let the military drag him into another adventure like Syria or Iraq. Iran will have to start shooting missiles or really screw with our ships before he responds with overwhelming force.

#UPDATE: Reports coming in from Arab media in the last hour that Saudi Arabia and Gulf states have agreed to a US request to redeploy troops in Gulf waters and on land

Yep it looks like it’s correct. US forces have been given green light by Gulf states to ‘redeploy’ 🤷‍♂️ to the Gulf via land and sea to counter Iran according to @AlHadath @AlArabiya_Brk @AlainBRK

Shocker,, That does not mean it will happen. Its just military planning, posturing and Bolton seem's to be way ahead of Trump for which is likely pissing him off.
