Meanwhile, the US is ready to dispatch 120,000 soldiers to the Middle East because of the conflict with Iran, according to The New York Times. However, Trump denies everything.
Donald Trump, President of USA: "I think it's fake news. Now, would I do that? Absolutely. But we have not planned for that. Hopefully, we’re not going to have to. And if we did that we'd send a hell of a lot more troops than 120,000. Where did you get that information, The New York Times? The New York Times is fake news".
Nevertheless, a US strike group led by the USS Abraham Lincoln nuclear-powered aircraft carrier has already entered the waters of the Aden Gulf and is sailing towards Iran. The group also includes a missile cruiser and three destroyers. Washington explains that it's just protecting its interests.
At the same time, Spain decided to withdraw its frigate from the group. Madrid declared that it's not ready for an escalation like that. They weren't even told about the mission objective ahead of time. In general, Europe doesn't support the provocations against Iran.
