Gates: Second US carrier deployed to Gulf is “reminder” to Tehran

April 30, 2008, 10:30 AM (GMT+02:00)

During a visit to Mexico City, US defense secretary Robert Gates said April 29 that the arrival of the USS Abraham Lincoln in the Gulf should be seen as a reminder of US military power in the region. He flatly denied the US was preparing the ground for military strikes against Iran. But as DEBKAfile and DEBKA-Net-Weekly have reported in the last ten days, the carrier’s arrival and additional US military steps have underscored the hardening of US rhetoric against Iran.

DEBKAfile: So far, the Tehran government is not backing off and does not appear deterred by Washington’s warnings or its military movements.

Friday, April 25, Adm. Michael Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters in Washington that the Pentagon is planning for “potential military courses of action” against Iran. He spoke of rising concern about the Tehran government’s “increasingly lethal and malign influence” in Iraq.

Gates: Second Carrier In Gulf A 'Reminder' To Iran

MEXICO CITY - U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said April 30 that the deployment of a second aircraft carrier to the Gulf should be seen as a "reminder" of US military power in the region.

But Gates flatly denied that the U.S. was preparing the ground for military strikes against Iran.

The arrival of the carrier Abraham Lincoln in the Gulf follows a noticeable hardening in U.S. rhetoric against Iran for meddling in Iraq and playing a destabilizing role in the region.

Cmdr. Jeff Davis, a U.S. Navy spokesman, said the Lincoln would overlap with the departing carrier Harry Truman by "no more than a day or two." He said it was a "routine regular replacement."

CBS News reported that the Pentagon has ordered new options drawn up for attacking Iran and that the State Department has begun drafting an ultimatum that would tell Iran to stop meddling or else.
