According to the article: heading to the shores of Iran, a group of US attack ships led by the aircraft carrier "Abraham Lincoln" and the bombers. This was announced by Trump's national security adviser, John Bolton, describing the move as a review of the "unforgiving force" of Tehran.
The Gulf muscle review coincides with the tightening of US sanctions toward a total ban on Iranian oil and the denial of the opportunity to develop nuclear programs even under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). A year after Washington unilaterally withdrew from a nuclear deal with Tehran, Iran was exposed to the biggest US military, trade and economic pressure.
Trump, the new program to deter Iran on 8 May last year, put the Islamic Republic in a difficult dilemma: either meeting tough American demands or returning to the status of a "pariah state" with international isolation.
The list of demands put forward by the current US Administration for Tehran was long, foremost of which was Iran's abandonment of the development of missile programs and their transfer to third countries. If they refuse, they will encounter "problems they have not encountered before."
Indeed, with a year of comprehensive sanctions war against Tehran, Washington has been able to withdraw a large part of Western business from the Iranian market and seriously strike major sectors of the Iranian economy, including energy, petrochemicals and the financial sector.
Against this background, Tehran is trying to show its ability to make a decision and declares its intention to seek ways to continue cooperation in the fields of energy, corn, trade and economy with countries that do not support US sanctions.
But growing pressure on Tehran has prompted US action not to be rejected by leading international players, including Washington's European allies. The joint statement by EU foreign policy chief Federica Mugrini and the foreign ministers of France, Germany and the United Kingdom circulated last Saturday expressed regret over Washington's recent moves to toughen sanctions against Iran.
