CNN Pentagon correspondent Barbara Starr reports Iran's forces in the Persian Gulf are now on high alert, possibly in preparation for some level of either offensive or defensive action.

"Iranian maritime forces in the Persian Gulf raised readiness levels in last 48 hours," Starr writes based on a US defense official.
