Pentagon to Review Deployment of US Military Across World, Austin Says
US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin announced in a statement on Thursday that the Pentagon will review the deployment of the US military around the world.
“At the direction of the President, the Department will therefore conduct a global force posture review of US military footprint, resources, strategy, and missions,” Austin said in a statement on late Thursday.
He added that the review of US military presence abroad will be conducted in consultation with allies.
“We will consult our allies and partners as we conduct this review,” Austin said.
However, Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby said that the administration has not yet decided on its military postures in either Iraq, or Afghanistan.
Prior to his confirmation to the office, Austin said that he will review US force presence in the Middle East to address challenges – “including from China and Russia.” He also said that he would revise the Trump administration’s decision to pull out a significant number of US troops from Germany.
