It has just been announced on the BBC1 evening news, that the United States is to send a second carrier battle group to the Persian Gulf in an effort to put additional pressure on Iran.
Do any of our friends from across the pond have any info about this and if so, what does the Bush administration hope to achieve?

I ask because I can look right across the bay here at Norfolk and see the carriers which are parked there. Also the rest of the group.
That is not to say they are coming from this port or harbor. There are other groups stationed at other places around the world.
I would be shocked to find out they are going to send the Big E. That will be intresting.
