U.S. Aggressively Monitoring Potential Iranian Attacks

(Washington Free Beacon) Adam Kredo - The U.S is aggressively monitoring Iranian missile threats across the Middle East in close coordination with its Saudi Arabian allies, according to U.S. military officials who briefed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Thursday at Prince Sultan Air Base in Saudi Arabia, where 2,500 American troops arrived in January. In addition to a fleet of F-15 tactical fighters to help the Saudis defend their country, the U.S. installed Patriot surface-to-air missile systems to fend off potential Iranian strikes. Pompeo said, "You need only look at the ayatollah's Twitter feed to know that these are people who have a deep disdain for the very fundamental ideas that we hold so dear in the United States of America, and their desire to wipe the State of Israel off the map and to do harm to the United States of America remains, and our aim is to change that behavior from the regime."
