The news all over the world is covered with stories over the controversial topic of the Iran bombings. After a U.S. drone killed Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani, various groups of people are questioning how wise the president’s actions were. Some analysts are saying that killing Soleimani doesn’t cause Iran much harm, but only provokes them to more attacks on the U.S. While others like the National Security Adviser Robert C. O’Brien, claim that the attack was aimed to disrupt Iranian attacks on U.S. military and diplomatic personnel.
Although Texarkana and the surrounding area will not be directly affected by these situations, some air force bases in Texas may be. Bombers from Dyess Air Force Base returned from the Middle East in March. If the U.S. Air Force needed them in the Middle East again, then hundreds of soldiers would have to leave their families in Texas to go there. This would affect the areas surrounding the base greatly and all the families of the soldiers.
