President Bush said he planned to work with other countries to start sanctions, or punishments, on Iran for refusing to stop its nuclear program. The U.S. military also moved nine warships to the Persian Gulf near Iran to show off its strength. Iran says its nuclear program exists for peaceful energy purposes, not for nuclear weapons, but the U.S. government and some other governments do not believe this. The United States has over 9,000 nuclear weapons.
