Hundreds of US troops were deployed from Fort Bragg, North Carolina, on Saturday, to reinforce the US military presence in the Middle East amid fears of escalation, following the killing of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani.

Footage filmed on Saturday by the US military, shows troops loading cargo planes and lining up to board a plane with their rifles.

One airman said he was making plans for New Year’s Eve when he got alerted and called in to serve.

At least 750 additional soldiers were deployed to the region, with around 3,000 more prepared for possible deployment in the next days.

101th Airborne : this regiment was air-dropped on Normandy on June 6th 1944.
Is it a sign for Iran soon being liberated from the religious looneys’ dictatorship?

No fool. It is not a sign. It means these young kids will be killed. It is not their responsibility nor in their best interests to be in the middle east fighting for israeli and corporate Americas interest. Who are you to define Iranian culture and decide who are their leaders? You are not an Iranian and have no say so in their affairs. b**t out. Stop promoting war,death,destruction or Go man an American base and face suicide attackers.

Well most of those soldiers would be dead now. Don’t know how they are going to make much of a contribution to this futile effort.
