Bolton: US carrier sent to Mid-East to warn Iran

US national security adviser John Bolton said on Sunday that the US is deploying a carrier strike group and a bomber task force to the Middle East with a message to Iran. He said that any attack on US interests or its allies will be met with “unrelenting force.” Bolton’s comment confirmed DEBKAfile’s report last month on the arrival of the USS Abraham Lincoln carrier and strike group in the waters opposite Syria. He added that the decision was “in response to a number of troubling and escalatory indications and warnings. 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 added.

    If Islamofascist Iran doesn’t behave itself, it will become a Stone Age civilization.

    What, what?
    Do I understand well, Iran still exists?
    After all the demonstrated ayatollah foolishness and the terrorists guards?

    To gloat over recent Power demonstrations of U.S. military is naive (and/or foolish.)
    While it is able to destroy the the ayatollahs’ regime, unprecedented damage would be caused to Israel,
    and to the global environment…

    Iran will attack with all their missiles and the US will respond with NUKES.

    Yanks are great to start wars not so much at winning them. They didn’t learn from getting solidly defeated in Irak and Afghanistan.

    Iran’s first move should be to sink the 3 carriers as an opening salvo.

      Well / The US has changed Her Nucklear doctrine lately,
      ready to answer with Nuces against conventional military attacks.

      Surely the US will not accept a military defeat.
