Sky News reports that 'Joe Biden will authorise US military action in the Middle East'

US Secretary of State Blinken says 'the situation in the Middle East is the most dangerous since at least 1973'

"It is probable that this decision will be one of the most significant ones during his presidency."

At stake is the credibility of American deterrence and the teetering stability of the region.

On the list of options for the Pentagon: action against the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps outside Iran or attacking Iranian assets within its borders.

Biden will weigh geopolitical factors and domestic political considerations, too.

Among the options on the table for the Pentagon:

1- Striking Iranian personnel in #Syria or #Iraq

2- Striking Iranian naval assets in the Persian Gulf The officials suggested that, once the president gave the go-ahead, the retaliation would likely begin in the next couple of days and come in waves against a range of targets.
