Hooray, More Troops for Saudi Arabia

Oh great:
The Pentagon will deploy an additional 1,800 U.S. troops to Saudi Arabia, senior defense officials announced Friday, a modest increase in the U.S. military’s presence in the Middle East meant to deter aggressive Iranian actions.
This isn’t a big deployment or anything, but any kind of increase is symbolic of our endless commitment to the Saudis. Blech.
