WARSHIPS CONTINUE TO MOVE INTO PERSIAN GULF
DEC 23 2006
The U.S. Navy continues to move warships into the Gulf in an effort to counter Iran's growing military might.
Officials said the Bush administration has approved deployment of a range of warships to the Gulf over the next few months.
They said the effort was meant to assuage fears by Gulf Cooperation Council states of Iran's nuclear program and military buildup.
"The ships are coming from the Indian Ocean and the Red Sea," an official said. "It's a show of force and will be conducted in a steady and calm manner."
On Dec. 11, the U.S. Navy moved the Eisenhower Strike Group into the Gulf. The group contains three escort ships and an attack submarine.
