The US will position an aircraft carrier group in the Gulf after the new year as a warning to Iran, CBS news has reported.

The US TV network said the Pentagon was deploying "a major buildup of naval forces in and around the Persian Gulf" in response to what the US considered "increasingly provocative acts".

CBS noted Iranian naval exercises, support of Shiite militias in Iraq and its enrichment of nuclear fuel as reasons for US concern.

The network stressed, however, that the US does not intend to attack Iran but rather, "discourage its leaders from spreading their Shiite revolution."
