US to send Patriot missiles/ fighters

3 posts in this topic

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has approved the deployment of a Patriot missile battery and F-16 fighter jet aircraft to Jordan as part of a planned military exercise, but with an understanding that the weapons systems may stay in the country to bolster Jordan's security as violence from the Syrian civil war spreads.

Taylor, a spokesman at the U.S. Central Command, told CNN.

I think we have missiles in a lot of countries. Sounds like to me the Jordanians are worried about the Syrians and Hezbollah.

Reminds me of that song Eve Of Destruction by Barry McGuire.
