and tried to give the possible reason for it. The goal has always been to get our guys out of the area. Obama tried it and the ISIS situation got out of hand. We had to help smother it. This appeared to be warfare at a more primitive level, man to man combat, booby traps etc., soldiers boots on the ground. More sophisticated weaponry primarily only used when specific targets are were located, ID'd. and taken out with air strikes.
Saudi Arabia's threat on the other hand presents a different kind of warfare at least at this time. Iran's aggression took the form of drones and missiles not men on the ground. It appears that the danger would come from the air and its primarily this type of equipment that I believe is what is being sent to fortify. We don't know what kind of nuclear capability Iran has but we know they've been working on it. Should it become necessary, having an airbase strategically located can make a lot of difference.
