USS Truman carrier
The DEBKA file is reporting that Obama has begun a massive US Air-Sea-Marine build-up opposite Iran to boost US military strength in the Mediterranean and Persian Gulf regions in the short term with an extra air and naval strike forces and 6,000 Marine and sea combatants.
“Carrier Strike Group 10, headed by the USS Harry S. Truman aircraft carrier, sails out of the US Navy base at Norfolk, Virginia Friday, May 21.”
Its arrival will bring to two the number of US carriers off Iranian shores. The USS Dwight D. Eisenhower is already in the Arabian Sea. The pair of carriers will be joined by a German warship operating under American command.
It is also the first time that Obama, since taking office 14 months ago, is sending military reinforcements to the Persian Gulf. Our military sources have learned that the USS Truman is just the first element of the new buildup of US resources around Iran. It will take place over the next three months, reaching peak level in late July and early August. By then, the Pentagon plans to have at least 4 or 5 US aircraft carriers visible from Iranian shores.
