US secretary of state Rex Tillerson is touring Latin America. His itinerary includes all the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as a visit with the leaders of five countries (Mexico, Argentina, Peru, Colombia, and Jamaica). The main practical agenda consists the fight against crime and narcotics, immigration, and the economy. However, this is also in many ways a symbolic move.
On the eve of the tour, Tillerson spoke at the University of Texas, after which he left for Mexico.

In the summer of 2018, the US will send the First Tank Brigade with the colourful name of ‘Ironhorse’ and which is part of the First Cavalry Army to Europe “under the auspices of the next rotation of forces for the Atlantic Resolve operation”. As the US mission to NATO explained, the division itself is permanently dislocated in Fort Hood in Texas.
