Carrier USS George H.W. Bush headed Into Arabian Gulf
US Defense Secretary has ordered the aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush to move from the North Arabian Sea into the Arabian Gulf.
In a statement, it was said the order will provide US additional flexibility should military options be required to protect American lives, citizens and interests in Iraq.
The Bush will be accompanied by the guided-missile cruiser USS Philippine Sea and the guided-missile destroyer USS Truxtun.
The USS George H.W. Bush left its home port of Norfolk, Virginia, in February and is operating in the Middle East region.
