US Sends 2cd Warship to Persian Gulf Critics Wary of War
US is deploying another amphibious assault ship and a Patriot missile battery to bolster the aircraft carrier and B-52 bombers already sent to the Persian Gulf.
Yesterday, four vessels off the coast of the UAE were sabotaged and the attack is being alleged on Iran.
The EU has urged the US to show maximum restraint and for Iran to comply to the Nuclear Deal.
But Trump is escalating the issues as the Pentagon has said that it is ready to send 120,000 troops to counter Iran.
US sanctions - particularly those on the energy, shipping and financial sectors - have hit oil exports and caused foreign investment to dry up.
Now, Trump has signed a tough new executive order last week, extending existing sanctions to include Iranian aluminum, copper, iron and steel.
Rouhani said renewed US sanctions had led to worse economic conditions than during the country's 1980-88 war with neighboring Iraq.
Excruciating sanctions are forcing Iran to retaliate at a dangerous level.
