    United States sending aircraft carrier and bombers to Middle East to deter Iran


    Fighter jets parked on aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln ... had left port on April 1

    The Trump administration is deploying a carrier strike group and bombers to the Middle East in response to troubling "indications and warnings" from Iran and to show the United States will retaliate with "unrelenting force" to any attack.

    Key points:

    • National security advisor John Bolton says the decision is meant to send a "clear and unmistakable message" to Tehran
    • US official says no imminent Iranian attack expected
    • Iran threatened to close Strait of Hormuz after US announced it would end exemptions to buyers of Iranian oil




    With tensions already high between Washington and Tehran, a US official said the deployment had been ordered "as a deterrence to what has been seen as potential preparations by Iranian forces and its proxies that may indicate possible attacks on US forces in the region".
    However, the official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the United States was not expecting any imminent Iranian attack.

    More trouble making from the Trump regime. Their mischievousness knows no bounds.

    There's nothing unusual about a carrier group floating around in the Gulf.
    There's also nothing unusual about Iran threatening once again to close the Straits of Hormuz.

    It's pretty much business as usual.

    I thought the US had several bases in that region, with an impressive 5 just on Bahrain.

    To be fair, if Shillary had won, the US would have been at war with Iran by now, imho.

    Bullshit. She fully supported the nuclear deal with Iran that Drumpf withdrew from. Don't spout nonsense. Drumpf has as his national security advisors one of the biggest neocon war mongers in John Bolten. Bolton of all things still thinks that invading Iraq was a good idea.

    My size? No I wouldn't think so I am much taller. Maybe you could try to explain in a somehow coherent way how Hillary would have been worse for the world than Drumpf. I would think that the overwhelming majority of your countrymen and the rest of the world would disagree.

    How many countries did Obama bomb all supported by Killary. Has Trump whatever you think of him personally not de escalated American involvement in numerous conflicts under Killary it would have increased. I've tried to keep it as simple as I can for you.

    Yep 2 phone calls and an email to a lawyer one day 20 years ago in response to letters received from her means I have an issue with women.

    Sometimes you can be incredibly gullible.

    There have been 2,243 drone strikes in the first two years of the Trump presidency, compared with 1,878 in Mr Obama's eight years in office, according to the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, a UK-based think tank.

    It's had its 5th fleet headquartered in Bahrain since Pinatubo blew up. And that's a sight fucking closer to Iran.

    Yep but I prefer Naples. Much better place to keep an eye on Iran.

    Has Iran invaded anyone lately? How many countries has America invaded or help overthrow the governments elected or otherwise? Yet Iran is the bad guy.
