ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the speculation that Iran will be the next target for the U.S. The growing tensions over Iran's nuclear program and actions in Iraq were said to be the reasons for the speculated military action. One of the U.S. government's strategies to pressure Iran include the deployment of a second aircraft carrier strike group to patrol the Persian Gulf. Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad remained defiant on the nuclear issue and ignored a United Nations deadline to halt uranium enrichment.
