Massive U.S. Military Buildup Reported Around Iran; Up to 100,000 Troops Ready By March

While President Obama’s supporters hailed his withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq as the end of the war in the middle east, behind the scenes the Pentagon has been quietly massing troops and armaments on two islands located just south of the Strait of Hormuz, and within easy striking distance of Iran.

In addition to some 50,000 U.S. troops currently in the region waiting for orders (apparently they won’t be home by this past Christmas as was originally promised), Nobel Peace Prize winner President Barack Obama is deploying an additional 50,000 soldiers to be ready for ‘any contingency’ by March:

President Barack Obama is reported exclusively by DEBKA-Net-Weekly’s military and Washington sources to have secretly ordered US air, naval and marine forces to build up heavy concentrations on two strategic islands – Socotra, which is part of a Yemeni archipelago in the Indian Ocean, and the Omani island of Masirah at the southern exit of the Strait of Hormuz.

Since 2010, the US has been quietly building giant air force and naval bases on Socotra with facilities for submarines, intelligence command centers and take-off pads for flying stealth drones, as part of a linked chain of strategic US military facilities in the Indian Ocean and Persian Gulf.

The Socotra facilities are so secret that they are never mentioned in any catalogue listing US military facilities in this part of the world, which include Jebel Ali and Al Dahfra in the United Arab Emirates; Arifjan in Kuwait; and Al Udeid in Qatar – all within short flying distances from Iran.

Additional US forces are also being poured into Camp Justice on the barren, 70-kilometer long Omani island of Masirah, just south of the Hormuz entry point to the Gulf of Oman from the Arabian Sea.

    Intel disinfo, these are merely r&r areas for returning troops before shipping home to the fatherland.

    I thought they went to Kuwait then to Germany then home.

    • I don’t know. I have no personal intelligence on this. Everyone I served with either got out, died, or are about to retire and won’t talk to me.

        I heard a tale, just a tale but I have a feeling it is an accurate one. Two officers in a northern regiment were talking in their mess before their sixth tour. Even the CO got involved in an animated debate. They did not want to go, they have had enough. Oh they went, the alternative is a dole queue.
        Thats an officers mess. Now I generally deal with what you call grunts, my kind of soldier. I know they are sick to death with it and question. The media fills it with spin, more TV trash on “our brave lads”. Trouble is when there are weekly documentaries it brings Vietnam to mind, you see “they” are losing the PR battle. Folk are war weary,when that starts to include your soldiers, well, give it time.
