A Patriot missile battery has been deployed to Incirlik air base, Turkey
A Patriot missile battery has been deployed to Incirlik air base, Turkey, as tensions continue to escalate. Turkish authorities requested the missiles following an Iraqi threat to retaliate against U.S. aircraft operating from the Turkish-American base. Late last week, the U.S. early warning system indicated a missile launch from Iraq and the base commander ordered troops into protective gear. But a check of the system showed that a component had given a false alarm and there had been no missile launch in Iraq.
