There are two new developments that certainly don’t help the situation.
The first is the Pentagon is sending 1,500 more American troops to the Middle East to monitor the Iranian military.
The second is an opinion voiced by a senior American naval officer, Vice Admiral Michael Gilday. The AP news article says, “The U.S. has a high degree of confidence that Iran’s Revolutionary Guard was responsible for the explosions on four tankers, and that Iranian proxies in Iraq fired rockets into Baghdad.”
Troop escalation, and blaming the other side without presenting evidence. Hmm . . . I believe that’s how the First Signpost started.
