A right-wing General of the Iranian Army announced a military coup across the country on 11 June 2011, deposing the existing government. The Iranian army had deployed several anti-ship missile launchers along the country's coastal area over the past week. Then the new government suddenly enforced a complete block on all types of civilian and military vessels sailing through the Strait of Hormuz. Thousands of commercial cargo ships are stuck inside the Persian Gulf sea. The United States and its allies declared a special military operation to unblock the shipping route. Two aircraft carrier groups, CVN-71 Theodore Roosevelt, CVN-73 George Washington, and Marine Special Purpose Force, were sent to the area as commanded under the U.S. Navy Fifth Fleet. Together with the U.S. Air Force 380th Air Expeditionary Wing based in Al Dhafra Air Base, a full-scale strike is planned and the military confrontation looks inevitable.
