Just hours after reports of Israel’s murder of a top Iranian scientist, Trump’s Pentagon deploys a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier and other warships to the Persian Gulf.
A defense official claims that the move is to support troops withdrawing from Iraq and Afghanistan and that the decision was made before news of the attack Iran broke earlier in the day.
However, Israeli media reported last week that the U.S. was working with Israel on an operation against Iran. Two weeks ago, Donald Trump asked officials about a military strike on Iran. Removing troops from the Middle East may be a cover.
