 The U.S. military presence in the Middle East is at its “weakest in history”, a deputy commander of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards was on Sunday quoted by the semi-official news agency Fars as saying.

U.S. President Donald Trump has tightened economic sanctions against Iran, and his administration says it has built up the U.S. military presence in the region.

It accuses Iran of threats to U.S. troops and interests. Tehran has described U.S. moves as “psychological warfare” and a “political game”.

“The Americans have been present in the region since 1833 and they are now at their weakest in history in West Asia,” said Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi, a deputy Guards commander, according to Fars.

he Pentagon has announced it will deploy approximately 1,500 personnel to the Middle East, including fighter jets, reconnaissance and surveillance aircraft, a battalion of Patriot surface-to-air missile systems, and combat engineers. However, U.S. military officials have already clarified that some 600 of these personnel are already in the region and will simply be extending their tours. The deployments are in response to still largely nebulous claims from the U.S. government that intelligence showed Iran and its proxies were preparing to launch attacks on American interests in the Middle East.

Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan revealed basic details about the new force posture on May 24, 2019, though he did not say specifically where the additional personnel would be arriving. The day before, he had dismissed various news reports that had said the United States was considering sending between 5,000 and 10,000 additional troops to the region. It should be noted that tthe U.S. military already has tens of thousands of troops in the Middle East.

Since National Security Advisor John Bolton first announced the Iranian threat on May 6, 2019, the U.S. military has sent B-52H bombers, F-15C Eagle fighter jets, and an additional battery of Patriots to the region, as well as expedited the deployment of the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln and her associated carrier strike group to the area. The U.S. Navy also sent the amphibious ship USS Arlington to swap places with another already sailing in and around the Persian Gulf.

WASHINGTON — At a meeting of President Trump’s top national security aides last Thursday, Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan presented an updated military plan that envisions sending as many as 120,000 troops to the Middle East should Iran attack American forces or accelerate work on nuclear weapons, administration officials said.
The revisions were ordered by hard-liners led by John R. Bolton, Mr. Trump’s national security adviser. They do not call for a land invasion of Iran, which would require vastly more troops, officials said.

The development reflects the influence of Mr. Bolton, one of the administration’s most virulent Iran hawks, whose push for confrontation with Tehran was ignored more than a decade ago by President George W. Bush.

It is highly uncertain whether Mr. Trump, who has sought to disentangle the United States from Afghanistan and Syria, ultimately would send so many American forces back to the Middle East.

It is also unclear whether the president has been briefed on the number of troops or other details in the plans. On Monday, asked about if he was seeking regime change in Iran, Mr. Trump said: “We’ll see what happens with Iran. If they do anything, it would be a very bad mistake.”

Since John R. Bolton became the national security adviser in April 2018, he has intensified the Trump administration’s policy of isolating and pressuring Iran.

Iran is a maritime power bordered by the Caspian sea to the north and the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman to the south. It shares land borders with several troubled U.S. allies, including Afghanistan, Pakistan, Turkey and Iraq.

Its location in the center of Eurasia is particularly important for trade. About a third of the world’s oil tanker traffic passes through the Strait of Hormuz, which is bordered by Iran and Oman. At its narrowest point, this shipping route is just under two miles wide. Blocking it could lead shipments of daily global oil exports to drop by an estimated 30 percent.

In terms of conventional military strength, Iran is far weaker than the United States. But the country has long pursued asymmetric strategies that could allow it to inflict serious damage on U.S. interests in the region.

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, a force loyal to Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and separate from the regular military, has an external special operations arm known as the Quds Force that has helped build proxy forces in places such as Iraq, Lebanon and Syria. It funds militias such as Hezbollah, which is powerful in its own right.
Iran has used these type of groups to target Americans before. Earlier this year, a revised Pentagon estimate found Iranian proxy forces had killed at least 608 U.S. troops in Iraq between 2003 and 2011. Iranian proxies could cause havoc in Iraq and Afghanistan again.

Iran’s navy has a real advantage against the United States, too. It doesn’t need big ships or firepower to block off the Strait of Hormuz, for example, but could use mines or submarines to force a halt in trade.

U.S. war games have suggested that speedboat suicide attacks and missiles could be surprisingly effective against the American military. A 2017 report from the Office of Naval Intelligence found that the navy of the Revolutionary Guard, which is distinct from Iran’s regular navy and focuses on smaller and faster but still heavily armed vessels, had received more responsibilities to protect the Persian Gulf.

On paper, Iran's military is no match for the US's armed forces.
But Tehran has asymmetric capabilities that it could bring to bear, and conditions on the ground as well as unexpected factors would make any US victory a costly one.

If the long history of military conflict teaches us anything, it's that wars, like marriages, are easier to get into than out. War with Iran would be no exception.

On paper, it would hardly be a contest. "It won't be a fair fight," promised Gen. Frank McKenzie this month as tensions flared and the US dispatched warships and bombers in response to unspecified threats from Iran to US interests in the Persian Gulf region.

As the head of US Central Command, McKenzie would be in charge of drawing up and executing the battle plan, assuming he's not micromanaged by the White House.

Even while dismissing as "fake news" a New York Times report that contingency planning called for sending 120,000 US troops to the Middle East, President Trump indicated that his inclination is to go big or go home.

"If we did that, we'd send a hell of a lot more troops than that," he said.

The US military is far superior to Iran's in every significant way. Iran's air force consists of about 330 combat aircraft, mostly aging or obsolete US, Chinese, and Soviet models, including American F-14s that predate the 1979 Islamic Revolution.


Its navy has about 130 combatant surface ships, along with three diesel submarines, and its troops number a little over half a million, with roughly 350,000 soldiers in the army and another 150,000 in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, which the Trump administration has just labeled a terrorist organization.

America's military enjoys state-of-the art weaponry and employs battlefield tactics honed by decades of real-world combat. Iran's ability to modernize its military has been crippled by four decades of sanctions, and it hasn't fought a major war in 30 years.

In a conventional force-on-force war, like the 1991 Persian Gulf War, the US would win in short order, at least on paper. But wars aren't fought on paper, and the last notable tank-on-tank conventional land battle was the 2003 US-led invasion of Iraq.

"There are two ways to fight the United States military, asymmetrically and stupid, and you hope that your enemies pick stupid," former national security adviser retired Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster said at a conference in Washington this month. In 2003, Saddam Hussein picked stupid. Iran would want to avoid that mistake.

The US military is deploying additional assets to the Middle East to deter a possible Iranian attack, the Pentagon announced on Friday.

The USS Arlington, an amphibious transport-landing dock used to move troops for expeditionary operations, and a Patriot surface-to-air missile battery are on their way to the US Central Command area of responsibility

These assets will join the USS Abraham Lincoln carrier strike group and the B-52 bomber task force deployed to this region earlier in the week.
The US is sending even more firepower to the Middle East in response to unspecified threats from Iran, the Pentagon announced on Friday.

The USS Arlington, a San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock used to move Marines, amphibious assault vehicles, conventional landing craft, and rotary aircraft, and a Patriot surface-to-air missile battery capable of eliminating certain types of incoming missiles and aircraft are on their way to the US Central Command area of responsibility.

The deployment is part of an ongoing effort that began on Sunday to deter a possible Iranian attack on US forces or interests in the region, the Department of Defense said, stressing that the movement of US assets is "in response to indications of heightened Iranian readiness to conduct offensive operations against US forces and our interests."
