(Source: Free Beacon) – Some 3,000 U.S. military personnel as well as American “air, land, sea, and special operations components” have moved into the Persian Gulf region for a military exercise that coincides with the finalization of a nuclear agreement with Iran aimed at containing its nuclear arms program, according to officials from U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM).
The exercise, known as Eagle Resolve, has been taking place in Kuwaiti waters since March 8 and will run through the end of the month, when the United States is expected to announce a tentative framework agreement with Iran that is to serve as the final step toward a nuclear agreement.
This year’s exercise, which is taking place off Iran’s southern coast, “is the biggest to date,” according to a readout of the exercise provided by CENTCOM officials. Military representatives from more than a dozen U.S. allies are supporting the exercise. – Read More – Free Beacon
