Pelosi told her colleagues the USA has to "avoid any war with Iran", according to a person in the room, who was granted anonymity to discuss the private caucus meeting.

And Moscow expressed concerns that both Washington and Tehran were dangerously stoking tensions, as the Pentagon ramped up its forces in the Gulf with B-52 bombers, Patriot missiles and an aircraft carrier task force.

US President Donald Trump's administration has stepped up pressure via sanctions by ending waivers for some countries to purchase Iranian oil - part of efforts to roll back the Islamic Republic's expanding regional clout.

Following the USA announcement on Wednesday, the commander of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards said, "We are on the cusp of a full-scale confrontation with the enemy", the Fars news agency reported.

U.S. officials have not publicly provided any evidence to back up claims of an increased Iranian threat.

The presidential candidate and Iraq war veteran added, "What we're seeing instead are actions coming from President Trump and his administration, led by John Bolton, that are dangerously escalating us closer and closer toward a devastating war with Iran". A US official previously said all four ships sustained damage at or below their waterlines.

The State Department reissued travel advisory for Iraq saying U.S. citizens were at high risk of violence and kidnapping.

Details around the alleged acts of sabotage off the coast of the UAE's port of Fujairah remain unclear.

AsCommon Dreamsreportedon Tuesday, U.S. officials are - without any concrete evidence - attempting to blame Iran for attacks on oil tankers in the Strait of Hormuz over the weekend.

Trump to launch new immigration overhaul push
The new plan would focus on reducing family-based immigration to the U.S.in favor of employment-skill-based immigration. Yamiche Alcindor talks to Amna Nawaz about the plan's details and its likely reception by Congress.

That same day, a top British general in the US-led operation to combat the Islamic State (IS) group in Iraq and Syria blew a hole in the Trump administration's assertion that Iran-allied militias were mobilising to attack U.S. forces.

Major General Christopher Ghika said he has seen no recent worrisome activity by the Popular Mobilisation Forces (PMF), an umbrella organisation of Shia armed groups loosely affiliated with Iran. And the Netherlands suspended a mission providing assistance to Iraqi local authorities, Dutch news agency ANP said.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told media on May 6 that "it is absolutely the case that we've seen escalatory action from the Iranians", but he also said he couldn't be more explicit.

Talking more about U.S. military action against Iran under the pretext of allegations that Iran is preparing strikes against USA forces in the Middle East, the article said: "The United States is poorly prepared for another conflict in the region; it has the support of none of its North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, not even - as Mr. Hunt made clear - Britain".

The European Union and the foreign ministers of Germany, France, and Britain said they were still committed to the deal but would not accept ultimatums from Tehran.

"So far we notice the continued escalation of tensions around this subject", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, a day after Pompeo met with President Vladimir Putin.

Still, that hasn't stopped the United States from moving ahead with its claims against Iran.

Trump himself denied a report on Tuesday that the administration had reviewed a plan to send 120,000 troops. "That's Congress's job - and that's why I'm supporting this legislation to prevent a war with Iran". "Does Trump want to go to war with Iran, especially during an election campaign year?"
