The United States will deploy an aircraft carrier and a bomber in the Middle East to give a “clear and unmistakable message” to Iran. That is what the American national security adviser John Bolton announced today.
According to Bolton, deploying the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group is an answer to “a number of worrying and escalating indications and warnings.”
“The purpose of the line-up is to give a clear and unmistakable message to the Iranian regime that any attack against the interests of the United States or one of their allies will be answered with ruthless violence,” Bolton clarified. “The United States is not seeking war with the Iranian regime, but we are fully prepared to respond to any attack.”
