The sending of additional US troops and military equipment to Saudi Arabia is going to send a powerful signal to the Iranian regime, say US Special Representative for Iran Brian Hook.
“Right now, [Iran is] in a state of what we just what we call panicked aggression. And I think the attacks on Saudi Arabia on September 14th is a sign of weakness. And it’s a sign that our pressure is having a big impact on this regime,” Hook told Al Arabiya.
The Pentagon confirmed on Friday it has approved the deployment of 3,000 additional troops and military hardware to Saudi Arabia, boosting the country’s defenses after attacks on its oil installations blamed on Iran.
