"Is going to send hundreds of additional troops at a dozen fighter jets to the Middle East in the coming weeks to counter what the Pentagon says is an escalating campaign by Iran to plan attacks against the US and its interest. Spoke at CBS military analyst, and retired Colonel Jeff about the troops going to the region, the number, which is far lower than some earlier estimates. Is large as had been -ticipant, apparently, the president has been briefed on numbers of five to ten thousand Pentagon nails fifteen hundred troops move into the region. However, they also suggest it's might be phase one of a multi phase operation and kind of Unicenter being or more defensive character, there patriot military battalions, which air defenses that could take out incoming Iranian missiles, cruise missiles or aircraft, plus additional surveillance aircraft. And they're supporting crews. Of course where they could monitor a any either naval activities, or even reunion airspace. But we're these will actually be better down at unclear my guess is probably in the United Arab Emirates or large base. They're potentially some of the defense units might actually go to Saudi Arabia. Is this meant as just a little bit more of a message to Iran versus you know, some full blown deployment of troops. A message to Iran and also a message to our allies in the region, trying to reassure and deter votes time, also swollen to apparently request by the income commander. But, you know, this is messaging using military force by, in the end is clearly, similar fashion. You might say the last there. So the United States sent two destroyers through the straits of removes quarter that, large ABRAHAM LINCOLN battlegroup book by translating that narrow space, the streets of the Persian Gulf, a very important waterway is about twenty percent or more of the world's oil supplies pass through that. We're showing the flag. We're ensuring those international waterways are still open and though they were cruelly monitored in their movement, by the Iranians know provocative actions occurred. And I was gonna say you're talking about the patriot battalion and the defensive kind of posture on this about of troops and what they're going to do, usually, it's needed defensive, if you think somebody's going to go on the offensive do. Do we think that una -fensive from Iran or somebody in that region is highly likely apparently the intelligence suggests that it's been rather opaque and very little, none of it has been shared publicly, but there were suggestions about their any as putting missile on small boats, which could obviously threaten of our ships at sea, and if there wasn't escalate into a full-blown conflict, obviously, one of the gravest concerns would be the Iranians, not only attacking US forces in the region in Bahrain, or perhaps, in Iraq, or the United Arab Emirates in particular, we have true concentrations, but also potentially attacking some of the very vulnerable oil facilities that are in that particular area, depending those also be a priority. So fifteen hundred troops roughly and how long before they could actually be in place over there. I know the military can move pretty quick. Clear to me, exactly what these forces are moving from the probably in a matter of a few days to a week, at the most of the patriot battalion, the enhancer Valence crab, obviously, can move into the theater pretty dog fat. That is CBS military analyst retired Colonel, Jeff macaws, Liz US repairs, send about fifteen hundred troops into the Persian Gulf region, six thirty eight to get a check now on business.

"Most hawkish advisers could be angling for such conflict as today if the US was going to war with ran the president replied, I hope not one day after he repeated a desire for dialogue with these Lamad Republic, I smoked CBS military analyst and retired. Colonel Jeff macaws learned about the tensions there and the differing opinions about the possible threats that opposed in the region disagreement with our allies, who do not believe the threat warranty action, frankly, United States taken have claimed other photographs have not been released that we've seen signs of the Iranians putting missiles on small boats called down for the patrol boats, which might threaten shipping or even US naval vessels operating in around the Persian Gulf since craze for moose. That is the action whereby. We increased our military presence that initiative, course some background chatter between the Revolutionary Guards and other Shiite groups operating Iraq and Syria, talking about the possibly attacks on Americans, but are why disagreement with our European allies. The deputy commander of forces in the region, a Major General, from the British army says he sees Crispell change in the Intel picture German allies, the Spanish of pulled out of frigate that was part of the task force TV can pick your region. Germans Dutch and others have said that they don't see this particular problem that the United States says warrants ratcheting up tensions, the Saudi Arabians are blaming Iran for a drone strike by some, some rebels. What's the connection there? They're calling for some strikes on Iran. Are they stirring, the pot or is there? They're legit concern there, there's no doubt about that. There has been increased tension for long time between Iran and Saudi Arabia, both quoting buying to be the power in that particular region. And of course, this long going war in Yemen, Saturday, Arabia's arrayed supporting the so-called Yemeni government, the Iranians actually support the so-called Kuki rebels the rebels who also receive support RAV I said claimed responsibility for these trona tracks again, Saudi oil infrastructure.

"Foreign tourists, the president of Sri Lanka will also be with foreign diplomats to seek international assistance, citing intelligence agencies that report international groups were involved in the bombings spoke with CBS military analyst retired army Colonel Jeff macaws Lynn about violence in that area. And Islam extremists. Nick, they will celebrate the anniversary of the end of the civil war between the Tamil minority and the majority Sinhalese Buddhist Tamils being cooperation of Muslim Hindu and actually the Muslim population. The country is around ten percent or so so that not extreme depending on a group called the national though with. Which is a splinter group of a large organization that had distanced itself such as this, but it would appear based on how many attack occurred how well coordinated type of explosive. Splinter group likely got assistance from somewhere outside who that might be. Most people are thinking could be ISIS there, obviously was a lot of planning that went into this. It clearly they knew where they wanted to hit. And when they wanted to hit coinciding with Easter. So this was was certainly something that didn't just happen. Spur of the moment. Not at all. Seven suicide bombers total bomb went off three against Christian churches, luxury hotels on the side. Of course, being the Easter holiday weekend expectation, be larger groups of worshipers, very soft target to keep in mind. Whether you are doing a bombing like this. Burning churches in Louisiana or carrying gasoline into Saint Patrick's cathedral trying to do is to terrorize. International recognition. What what you're doing? And so the seeds of fishers and divide between either ethnic or religious groups clue that was their intent this attack killed more people in one single attack attack. I believe since September eleventh two thousand and what they've been many arrests as well. As those who are killed some were arrested. How much information can we expect to learn from those who may have been part of this? I would guess that they wouldn't want to give up too much information. Again, that's up to the police intelligence services, one of the worrying aspects of this apparently that the government was alerted as far back as two weeks ago, and even a few days prior to the attack some type of terrorist attack was in the offing. Or it was not going to be very severe did not take action. So they'll be spurred to try to get more information quickly. Because right now a lot of people are complaining they didn't act on the intelligence. They already have president Tom also given military sweeping powers to provide security in that area. Now on eastern San Diego parisioners at one church. Bring it action and tackled. The woman who would entered holding a baby and a handgun after Benjamin. Within says the woman appeared to be on a mission to get yourself hurt and says the congregation was not fazed by the apparent threat to peace on the whole place. Screaming or shouting or anything like that? And you can just leave and then people outside and praying for safety protection turns out that gun was not loaded on a Kanchi was arrested her baby and five year old daughter found during a follow up investigation. Both of them appear to be healthy and on hurt. There were celebrations for Easter in Paris in the shadow of Notre Dame cathedral gutted by fire last week ABC's.
