Defense officials have updated a military strategy that envisions sending as many as 120,000 U.S. troops to the Middle East if Iran were to attack or accelerate work on nuclear weapons.

The size of the force envisaged shocked some of those who were briefed on the plans; it would approach the number of American troops who invaded Iraq in 2003, and would reverse years of curtailing U.S. military involvement in the Middle East.

The revisions — ordered by hard-liners led by John Bolton, the national security adviser — reflect both Mr. Bolton’s influence and sharp divisions within the administration over how to respond to Tehran.
