As the new White House administration seeks to shift US policy concerning the Middle East, it has removed key military assets during a time in which military pressure is mounting from the Islamic Republic.
In what was first reported by the Wall Street Journal, the Biden administration is moving military assets out of the Gulf region at a significant rate, according to a report this week. The removal of military interests from the region is reportedly for several reasons, including the refocusing on other regions of the world. However, there’s no question that the Biden administration has zero intentions of working with the Saudis like the former administration.
According to the report, the White House has “removed at least three Patriot antimissile batteries from the Gulf region, including one from Prince Sultan Air Base in Saudi Arabia, that had been put in place in recent years to help protect American forces.”
Continuing, it revealed that more assets could soon be departing the region, saying, “Some capabilities, including an aircraft carrier and surveillance systems, are being diverted from the Middle East to answer military needs elsewhere around the globe…other reductions are under consideration.”
This move from the Biden administration comes when the Iranian-sponsored Houthi Rebels have been increasing their attacks on the Kingdom via ballistic missiles and explosive drones. They have often targeted Aramco oil facilities and civilian airports.
Despite the administration’s said commitment to building a relationship with the Saudis, removing these key military interests comes at a very compromising time.
It would be a bad thing for China to dominate the world economy, right? Or international groups like the World Health Organization. Or maybe the United Nations?
Evangelical Christians in France are expressing unease as they see how the national government inflames the rhetoric against their churches.
The last episode has to do with the words of the French Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin. In an interview with tv broadcaster C News, he said: “Evangelicals are a very important problem”, only to add, “obviously not a problem of the same nature than the Islamism that makes terrorist attacks and deaths”.
One day before, speaking about the controversial anti-separatism law that is expected to be passed soon, he told radio broadcaster France Inter: “We cannot discuss with people who refuse to write on paper that the law of the Republic is superior to the law of God”.
Dr. Steven Quay, chairman and CEO of Atossa Therapeutics, explains his new Bayesian analysis that shows a 100 percent probability that the CCP virus “came from a lab.”
“I would like the public to have a vigorous understanding of this,” said Dr. Quay.
Stephen K. Bannon blasted the CCP for its involvement.
“The Chinese Communist Party has lied for 50 years. they basically built a Chernobyl…in Wuhan that the [People’s Liberation Army] PLA controls,” he said.
Russia is ready to help the Iranian regime build new nuclear power units at the Bushehr nuclear power plant on the Persian Gulf.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov held a press conference with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif on Tuesday, reported Russian state news agency TASS.
“Particularly we discussed cooperation on construction of new power units of the Busher Nuclear Power Plant in Iran and overall welcomed the drive of all our colleagues from the economic block of the governments of the two countries and Russian and Iranian business circles to comprehensively expand multifaceted partnership,” he said.
Several labour unions have denounced the move as a dangerous step towards more “state surveillance”. Human rights organisation Amnesty International also denounced that now “not only people but groups” could be surveyed, adding that the new rules allow authorities to analyse the “lifestyle and movements” of citizens.
An appeal against these decrees was rejected by the Council of State on 4th January.
