FILE - In this Thursday, June 21, 2007 file photo, an F-16 Falcon takes off from Balad Air Base, 50 miles north of Baghdad, Iraq. Jordanian officials said Wednesday, June 5, 2013 that the U.S. will deploy anti-missile batteries and F-16 jet fighters in the kingdom to bolster its defense capabilities in the face of a Syrian attack. Two security officials involved in the deployment, expected in the coming days, said that Washington is deploying one or two Patriot missile launchers on the northern border with Syria and a squadron of 12 to 24 F-16 warplanes as part of the international military maneuver "Eager Lion."
