In 1st since Biden elected, US bomber flies over Persian Gulf in warning to Iran

For the first time since Joe Biden became US president and in the sixth incident since last fall, a US B-52 bomber flies over the Persian Gulf in a warning to Iran, the Wall Street Journal reports.

“Our intent is to maintain that enduring defensive posture, to deter any aggression in the region, promote regional security and assure our allies,” a senior US military official tells the paper.
