120,000 Troops To Middle East?

In a frightening development, the Trump White House is said to be considering sending an additional 120,000 troops to the Middle East. These men and women will be there in order to protect American interests in the event of a war with Iran.

This comes after a recent increase in tension with Iran. John Bolton, indeed, is said to be eager for a war with Iran on the assumption that it would be an important step toward the elimination of terrorism in the Islamic world. The fact that Iran is Shi’ite while¬† ISIS, al-Qaeda, and the Taliban are Sunni is, apparently, of no import.

One question that has to be asked: are the soldiers going to the Middle East to keep the peace? Or are they being sent as targets, to provoke a war?
