The USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group being deployment today to U.S. Central Command and is slated to be stationed in the Arabian Sea or Persian Gulf.   Also deployed was a Bomber Task Force of unknown make up.

"The United States is not seeking war with the Iranian regime, but we are fully prepared to respond to any attack, whether by proxy, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, or regular Iranian forces,” he said.

Bolton also said the move was in response to "a number of troubling and escalatory indications and warnings," without elaborating.  Asked about "escalatory actions," Pompeo replied, "I don't want to talk about what underlays it, but make no mistake, we have good reason to want to communicate clearly about how the Iranians should understand how we will respond to actions they may take."

We are most certainly living in interesting times!  This deployment was preceded by the U.S. designation of Iran's Revolutionary Guard division as a terrorist group.

Its been a while since I've heard from the prior service recruitment dept. Might be hearing from them again. Never have trusted Iran. If it wasn't for their nuke program I think we would have mopped them up ages ago.

You are lucky, I hear from them every 90 days! Guess I should play the lottery since I am just that lucky!

I am with you regarding all the former colonial nations. Too many axes to grind and way too many folks with long memories.
