    US to extend military presence in Kuwait

    The latest report from Congress said 15,000 US troops are already stationed in the tiny Gulf country.It said more troops are needed to respond to sudden conflicts in the region. Iran, Iraq and the ability to keep oil flowing from Saudi Arabia are major concerns for the world's biggest economy.Al Jazeera's Rosiland Jordan reports from Washington.

    Whats the point of troops being here in Kuwait? Well "in case a sudden conflict breaks out"? Or is it some new staging ground for Iran? Is it because Iran is trying to "acquire nuclear weapons" (with no proof on that matter). Is this a stage to launch a war with Iran int the near future? Or is it all about oil and "shipping lanes"?

    The US always enjoyed having a presence in the region. Since Saudi Arabia felt the Americans were obsessed with messing up their religious business and boundaries and threw most of the them out, they went to the closest alternative.
