Greece is rapidly becoming the main base for US offensive missions in Iraq and Syria

The solution to the big problem of the US in the region is Greece becoming the main air base of the US Air Force.

This solution involves a wave of attacks by Tehran through Shiite militias on US bases in Iraq and Syria.

The pro-Iranian militias launch rockets and suicide drones with the Americans on constant alert.

"U.S. troops stationed in Iraq and Syria suffered 13 attacks last week, with drones and rockets," said Pentagon spokesman Patrick Ryder.

"Two dozen U.S. military personnel were wounded last week in a series of drone attacks on U.S. bases in Iraq and Syria," U.S. Central Command said.

The US Air Force sends aircraft to Greece as part of Israel's response to Hamas

The US Air Force plans to redeploy several aircraft of all types to a military base near Athens in connection with the US response to events in Israel, writes US journalist John Vandive.

Obviously, as we have reported, after Elefsina, other bases within Greek territory should be sought for the relocation of F-35 and F-22 fighter jets, should they launch offensive missions against targets in Iraq and Syria.

It is also expected that dozens of C-130J transports, as well as C-17s, naval cooperation, electronic warfare and intelligence-gathering aircraft, will be transferred to Elefsina,

The reported moves come as the Pentagon is redeploying additional forces to the eastern Mediterranean and Middle East in response to the Israel-Hamas war.

The possibility of the war expanding beyond Gaza has raised concerns that U.S. forces could face increased attacks on bases in Iraq and Syria, where pro-Iranian militias are constantly firing rockets and drones.

In response to these concerns, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin on Saturday ordered the transfer of the THAAD anti-aircraft system and additional Patriot missile batteries to bases in the region.

For the U.S. military, Greece is becoming an increasingly important ally in southeastern Europe.

In addition to the Souda Bay base, the U.S. Department of Defense has expanded U.S. presence at military installations throughout Greece in conjunction with an updated bilateral security agreement.

Greece is thus rapidly becoming the main base for U.S. offensive missions in Iraq and Syria, and we must make the most of this to secure our gains in the Aegean and Eastern Mediterranean.
