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.
The United States flew two B-52 bombers over the Persian Gulf on Wednesday as a forewarning to Iran against any potential attacks against American or allied targets in the Middle East.
Additionally, the senior military official said there could be a “potential for other more complex attacks” against Americans in Iraq. “I think it is likely that the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad would be attacked again in some manner.”
He added, “We’re seeing planning for, particularly in Iraq for complex attacks that require Iranian assistance in order to be pulled off. It’s unclear to us, whether it’s contingency planning, or whether it’s a plan that is advancing because approval has been given and they’re just trying to get all the pieces in place and execute.”
The leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) warned that the killing of Iran’s lead nuclear scientist nearly two weeks ago is only causing the regime to further plot against its ‘sworn enemies.’
Hossein Salami, the current leader of the IRGC, spoke recently concerning the killing of Iran’s head nuclear scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, and what Iran’s sworn enemies can expect in response. Fakhrizadeh was killed nearly two weeks ago east of Tehran at the hands of Israel’s Mossad. However, in his recent address, Salami did not specifically name the Jewish State.
In a recent speech, Salami stated, “Iran’s sworn enemies should know that the Shahids are our burning flames, we will continue on the path they have laid out before us, we will not stop.”
A Shahid is an Islamic martyr.
He continued his statement by claiming that Iran knows that its enemies are “waiting in fear,” knowing that the Islamic Republic will strike at the proper time. He added that Iran’s enemies would be wise to acknowledge that the regime grows whenever a martyr takes place.
As they have for a significant amount of time, Israel warned of its readiness to confront Iranian aggression. Israel has been very active in the prevention of Iranian entrenchment inside of Syria, especially in the last 12 months.

Good morning everyone. I hope you are having a wonderful early Monday morning getting ready to get back in the swing of things after the Thanksgiving holiday week. Prayer warriors it is time to be in prayer for this election. There is no doubt this election was stolen in favor of Joe Biden. The very America that we know and love is about to be destroyed. If our Supreme Court does not take up this case, if we cannot get to the bottom of this election fraud, then we will cease to be a nation. We will be controlled and ruled by elitist left-wing demagogues. No one is above the rule of law. Free and fair elections are the cornerstone to our constitutional republic. Be in prayer something must be done. God must move.
