The Pentagon is considering a buildup of Navy forces in the Persian Gulf as a show of force against Iran, a senior defense official said.
Speaking on condition of anonymity because the idea has not been approved, the official said one proposal called for sending a second aircraft carrier to the region amid increasing tensions with Iran. Tehran is blamed for encouraging sectarian violence in Iraq as well as allegedly pursuing a nuclear weapons program.
