Before allowing Israel to enter Gaza and continue the genocide it started – more than 6,500 civilians in Gaza have died since the October 7 Hamas false flag attack, meaning the Palestinian people have so far suffered the equivalent of more than 250 9/11s at the hands of Israel – the U.S. wants to make sure its "best friend" has enough weaponry to see the operation through to the end.
There are also ongoing negotiations concerning the release of hostages, which is also holding up the ground invasion because Israel and the West apparently want to spare them – but not the innocent civilians living in Gaza, which amount in the millions.
"The Pentagon is scrambling to deploy nearly a dozen air-defense systems to the region, including for U.S. troops serving in Iraq, Syria, Kuwait, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates," reads a report about the matter.
"U.S. officials have so far persuaded the Israelis to hold off until those pieces can be placed, as early as later this week."
(Related: The U.S. has no clue what will happen by providing "unconditional support" to Israel, but politicians, many of them blackmailed, do not care because they are beholden to the demands of the Israeli government regardless.)
In a statement, National Security Council (NSC) spokesman John Kirby openly warned that Israel's next move, with the help of the U.S., will definitely lead to more "innocent people" dying in Gaza.
"This is war," Kirby stated ominously. "It is combat. It is bloody. It is ugly, and it's going to be messy. And innocent civilians are going to be hurt going forward."
Another reason the U.S. is loading up weapons in the Middle East to add to Israel's arsenal is because pretty much all the rest of the Middle East, most notably Iran and Turkey, are threatening to come to Gaza's aid. Without U.S. support, Israel will crumble upon such an assault – and some would argue still will fall because the time of Western Zionist dominance is coming to an end, fulfilling prophecy.
One thing the U.S. is trying to do that Israel refuses to do is call for the allowance of more humanitarian aid into Gaza. After Israel shut off all the water, fuel, electricity and food supply, Palestinians have been suffering to an even greater extent than normal, with some of them now starving and dying.
At the same time, the U.S. says it is more concerned about "the threats to the U.S. troops," calling it an issue "of paramount concern."
Once the full incursion begins – they were calling it an invasion before, so even the rhetoric is beginning to change – U.S. military and other officials believe that American forces all throughout the Middle East will be targeted by various militant groups in defense of Gaza.
Syria is also a force to be reckoned with as it and Israel continue to exchange fire near the disputed Golan Heights. Widespread reports suggest that at least two rockets were fired from southern Syria into Israeli territory, with Israel Defense Forces (IDF) officials claiming that the pair of missiles landed in open fields.
The Golan Heights was technically Syrian territory before Israel decided to take possession of it on Dec. 14, 1981, subjecting the territory to the "laws, jurisdiction and administration" of Israel.
