Massive U.S. Military Buildup Near Iran

Israeli news intelligence sources are reporting that Washington has ordered large US air, marine and naval forces to two islands not that far away from the Persian Gulf. The two islands are Socotra, which is part of a Yemeni archipelago in the Indian Ocean, and the Omani island of Masirah at the southern exit of the Strait of Hormuz.

President Obama is hoping to draw Iran into talks through sanctions, but if that does not work—the war option is on the table, which means air strikes against Iran’s nuclear instillations.

The Obama administration had to negotiate a deal with Yemen for use of the Yemeni owned Island. American troops may top 50,000 between the Masirah and Socotra Islands by the end of March.

America and Israel are preparing for war…with Iran. Evil spiritual forces can sway world governments (see Daniel 8:23, 24; Revelation 13:2-8; 2 Corinthians 4:4). Will those forces soon provoke war in the Middle East? We wait and watch.
