United States and Iran row has been intensifying with the passage of time and now US has taken another step forward by sending its Patriot system to the Middle East. Earlier, it deployed USS Abraham Lincoln strike group into the Gulf region and now a warship dubbed as USS Arlington is also ready to join the previous team.
According to Pentagon, B-52 bombers have already reached on Qatar base. The United States called these moves as the necessity of time as US forces have security issues in the region from Iran. However, they didn’t specify the types of security issue but Iran rejected their accusation as nonsense. Pentagon claimed on Friday that the US will safeguard the interest of its forces and didn’t want to have war with Iran. Meanwhile, nearly 5,200 US troops are present in Iraq.
Iran also called the recent move as ‘psychological warfare’ to force it. The United States left the nuclear deal last year. Now, Iran has withdrawn from some commitment of nuclear deal in response. It has put some demands before European countries to completely follow the deal otherwise threatened to continue nuclear activities. European countries had denied to follow the ultimatum though they want to maintain the deal. Last month, US has also criticized Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist.
The Patriot defense system has the ability to counter ballistic and cruise missiles. USS Arlington deployment is already under process while USS Abraham Lincoln just about to reach on Suez Canal very soon. However, a source has revealed an Iranian cleric statement that the whole US fleet needs only one missile for destruction.
