“The deployment of the Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group and a bomber task force are considered prudent steps to protect US forces and interests in the region and to deter any aggression.”

Sunday, Mr. Bolton said that the USS Lincoln strike group and the bomber task force are being deployed “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,” due to “troubling and escalatory indications and warnings” from Iran.
