The American deployment is in response to several “worrying indications and warnings” from Iran, says Bolton. The decision came after a confrontation at higher levels of the administration over the weekend and represents for the United States a significant deployment of forces in an area, the Middle East, from which the US gradually withdrew.
According to administration officials, new intelligence information on Iran’s advanced threats has alarmed the White House and triggered the deployment. The nature of the threats is not clear but it is possible that there are indications of possible moves by Iranian groups against American interests.
