Washington (CNN) — The US has announced it will deploy additional Patriot missiles to the Middle East after US officials said intelligence indicates Iran and its proxies could be planning to threaten US forces and interests in the Middle East.

Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan approved the deployment.

"The Acting Secretary of Defense has approved the movement of USS Arlington and a Patriot Battery to US Central Command as part of the command's original request for forces earlier this week," a Pentagon statement said.

CNN has reported that intelligence has shown that Iran is likely moving short-range ballistic missiles and cruise missiles aboard boats in the Persian Gulf. The US military believes that cruise missiles could be launched from the small Iranian boats, which are known as dhows. Officials have said those boats are IRGC naval assets, not regular Iranian navy boats.

3. You sound scared.

Tell your jihadist/terrorist friends "don't start none, won't be none"

Silly little child!

7. Why did they blow up the Marine Barracks in Beirut in 1983 killing 241 Marines, and Sailors?

Why did the kill 7 US soldiers in Karbala in 2007 after kidnapping some of them?

why in a war with Iraq did they attack Neutral shipping?

8. Because we are the Great Satan

They call Israel the Little Satan

They have been wanting to destroy both of us for a long time. Obama helped their nuclear weapons development with US taxpayer money.

Where have you been?


Remember their statement "The destruction of Israel is non-negotiable?" It goes without saying the destruction of the United States is non-negotiable.

10. Its their assertion, not mine. Ask one of them.

And while you are at it, ask them why we must be destroyed (I actually know the answer to those)
