War drums: US deploys warship near Iranian waters to send message

US national security adviser John Bolton said on Sunday that the United States is deploying a carrier strike group and a bomber task force to the Middle Eastern region to send a clear message to Iran that any attack on Washington’s interests or its allies will be met with an “unrelenting force”.

John Bolton also stressed that Washington is not seeking war with Iran but ready to respond to any attack from Tehran.

“In response to a number of troubling and escalatory indications and warnings, the United States is deploying the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group and a bomber task force to the U.S. Central Command region to send a clear and unmistakable message to the Iranian regime that any attack on United States interests or on those of our allies will be met with unrelenting force,” the statement said.
