US to remove several missile defense systems from the Middle East, highlighting shift in focus

The US will remove two Patriot missile of its defense batteries from Kuwait, one from Bahrain, and one from Jordan next month, according to military sources. The batteries will be returned to the U.S. for upgrades and then relocated elsewhere. While it has not been announced where they will be placed, the move underscores the ongoing shift in attention away from the region and toward Russia, China, and Iran.
