BREAKING: U.S. announces nuclear sub has arrived in the Middle East

The US has just announced that a nuclear sub has arrived in the Middle East and their photo appears to show it in the Suez Canal.

They say this is an Ohio-class submarine, which means it is the largest in the US Navy fleet and the third largest in the world, according to Wikipedia. It should be armed with ballistic missiles:

I don’t know if this photos is just illustrative or not, but it appears to show two other subs in the water behind it.

Yesterday they reported that another aircraft carrier strike group arrived in the Middle East:

The Dwight D. Eisenhower Carrier Strike Group (IKECSG) arrived in the Middle East and the CENTCOM area of responsibility as part of the increase in regional posture.

The strike group is commanded by Carrier Strike Group (CSG) 2 and comprised of flagship aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69), guided-missile cruiser USS Philippine Sea (CG 58), guided-missile destroyers USS Mason (DDG 87) and USS Gravely (DDG 107) of Destroyer Squadron (DESRON) 22, Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 3 with its nine squadrons, and the Information Warfare Commander.

The US is sending a lot of resources to the Middle East. This is clearly a move to try and deter other actors from attacking Israel. I really hope this isn’t just a big military bluff, but with Biden in command you never know.
