Editor’s Note:  Where is Congress in all of this?  Article 1, Section 8 of the US Constitution, people!

The troops will be going to Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

Trump has said: “I’m the President of the United States of America. I’m not the president of the world.”

This situation could easily lead to another situation in which the U.S. is acting on behalf of other powers for interests that aren’t its own. We can only hope that he keeps that from happening.

“Pentagon will deploy US forces to the Middle East after Saudi Arabian oil facilities,” by Amanda Macias, CNBC, September 20, 2019:

WASHINGTON — The Pentagon will deploy U.S. forces to the Middle East on the heels of the Iranian attack on Saudi Arabian oil facilities, U.S. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper announced Friday.

“The president has approved the deployment of U.S. forces which will be defensive in nature and primarily focused on air and missile defense,” Esper said, adding that Saudi Arabia requested the support.

The strikes on the world’s largest crude-processing plant and oil field forced the kingdom to shut down half of its production operations. What’s more, the event triggered the largest spike in crude prices in decades and renewed concerns of a budding conflict in the Middle East. All the while, Iran maintains that it was not behind the attacks.

On Wednesday, Saudi Arabia’s defense ministry said that drone and missile debris recovered by investigators shows Iranian culpability. Saudi coalition spokesman Col. Turki al-Maliki said during a press briefing in Riyadh that all military components retrieved from the oil facilities “point to Iran.”

The latest confrontation follows a string of attacks in the Persian Gulf in recent months….

Though Trump has threatened to bring military action or even “fire and fury” against American adversaries, he has also said he does not want to throw the U.S. into another prolonged military conflict. In a tweet Tuesday, Trump called his measured response to the strikes “a sign of strength that some people just don’t understand!”
