The US aircraft carrier 'Abraham Lincoln' sailed through the Strait of Hormuz this month and entered the Persian Gulf despite threats from Iran. The carrier is part of a flotilla of Western warships now in the Gulf. The Persian Gulf hasn't seen this kind of display of naval power since the final campaign against Saddam Hussein.
