I find it a little strange that the USA doesn't want a war, but is reinforcing its troops in the Gulf.


If they really don't want a war, they would be better withdrawing troops rather than expanding them.


I find it not strange at all that some posters would harp on the same nonsense premise without paying attention to detail.


Troops sent are sent are to play a defensive role. Pulling out all US troops would simply allow Iran to do as it pleases, and would almost certainly not contribute much to regional stability. The idea that it's only USA presence and involvement that causes strife in the ME is a fantasy, at best.
