“Two weeks ago, the Trump administration officially labeled the Iranian Revolutionary  Guard a terrorist organization.” 

(Katie Pavlich – Townhall)  White House National Security Advisor John Bolton announced in a statement late Sunday night the United States is moving military assets to combat aggression by Iran.

“In response to a number of troubling and escalatory indications and warnings, the United States is deploying the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group and a bomber task force to the U.S. 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,” Bolton said.

“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 continued.

The specific acts by Iran that Bolton referred to are unclear.    View article →
