Pentagon deploys bombers near Iran


On a fundraising trip to California, president Barack Obama defended his policy on Iran before his pro-Israeli friends.

He thereby declared that the interim agreement signed in Geneva would entail measures aimed at maintaining military pressure on Teheran.

At the same time, while visiting the Persian Gulf, US Secretary of Defence Chuck Hagel revealed that the Pentagon was spending $ 580 million to beef up its Fifth Fleet in Bahrain.

F-22 planes will be stationed permanently, with the capability of immediately striking Iran, if necessary.
