U.S.S. Harry S. Truman On Station Off Iranian Shores

The 6,000 Marines and sailors of Carrier Strike Group 10 are
ahead of schedule, on station in the Arabian Sea off the
coast of Iran.

Headed by the U.S.S. Harry S. Truman, CVN-75, a Nimitz Class
nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, the Strike Group is part
of what will eventually be a contingent of 4 or 5 U.S.
aircraft carriers that will be visible from the shores of
Iran later this month or in early August.

The multi-ship flotilla pulled out of Norfolk on May 21 on
orders from President Obama.

Military experts have the opinion that any attack by Israel
upon Iran will be part of a bilateral action involving the
United States.

In the past 20 years, the U.S. Navy has never had a buildup
in a mideastern area without eventually invading and
occupying the area.
