US Military Requests 2nd Carrier For Persian Gulf December 20, 2006

Posted by notapundit in Military News.

NEW YORK (Dow Jones)–U.S. Central Command sent a request to the Pentagon last week for a second carrier battle group to be sent to the Persian Gulf and Indian Ocean area, Cable News Network reported Tuesday.

The carrier would join the U.S.S. Eisenhower that is already in the area, according to the report.

CNN said the military wants to send a message to Iran that it isn’t over-stretched.

If approved by the Pentagon, the second carrier would go to the Persian Gulf area after the first of the year.
