U.S. to send troops to Saudi Arabia, hold off

  • The Pentagon announced it will deploy additional U.S. troops and missile defense equipment to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, as President Donald Trump has at least for now put off any immediate military strike on Iran in response to the attack on the Saudi oil industry.
  • This is a first step to beef up security and he would not rule out additional moves down the road, Defense Secretary Mark Esper said.
