On Sunday, the US National Security Advisor John Bolton said, the United States is deploying a carrier strike group and a bomber task force to the Middle East to send a clear message to Iran that any attack on US interests or its allies will be met with “unrelenting force”. Let’s briefly discuss US warship & its need.
Amid rising tensions between US and Iran, Bolton said the decision was a response to a number of troubling indications and warnings.
Bolton said in a statement, “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.”
Washington said in an attempt to reduce Iran’s oil exports to zero, it will stop waivers for countries buying Iranian oil. It has also blacklisted the elite Revolutionary Guard Corps of Iran.
In response, Iran said it has mobilised all its resources to sell oil in a “grey market”.
The Trump administration’s efforts to impose political and economic isolation on Tehran began last year. It unilaterally withdrew from the nuclear deal. In 2015, other world powers negotiated with Iran.
Bolton, who has spearheaded an increasingly hawkish US policy on Iran, did not provide any other details.
Additionally, Bolton said, “The United States is deploying the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group and a bomber task force to the US 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.”
On Sunday, Iran’s deputy oil minister Amir Hossein Zamaninia said Iran would continue to export oil despite the US sanctions. According to him, these sanctions were neither just nor legitimate.
Further, he said we certainly won’t sell 2.5 million barrels per day as under the [nuclear deal].” “We will need to make serious decisions about our financial and economic management, and the government is working on that.”
A US official said the forces have been ordered to the region as deterrence to what has been seen as potential preparations by Iranian forces. Its proxies that may indicate possible attacks on US forces in the region.
