So Iran is blowing up mock-ups as a demo of strength, but we are not concerned. That's fine and all, but the message of "if it gets ugly, we will win" is a bit disconcerning. I can just imagine this being in a terrorist video to gain support in the war against the "infidels". Cause, you know, it's not like Iran has terrorist that would do something like that...

This is really scary to think undefended U.S. carrier replicas being sunk. Oh, think of the loss of millions of dollars it cost to make the mockup. Of course, the U.S. doesn't deploy carrier replicas but they do deploy the real thing which can defend itself from near and afar. If Iran were to attack one of our carriers the damage done in U.S. retaliation would be greater than the damage they inflicted on us.

Go ahead and let them sink their "replicas." We know they're not going to try and to do it to the real thing.

To the best of my knowledge, carriers do not deploy alone. Several screening / escort vessels are part of the task force. If the Iranian Navy can get close enough to blow up one of our carriers, then they truly earned the title of "Best Navy" and we earned our fate.

The Iranians should probably embrace the concept of train as you fight... based on the article I saw they are looking to fight a derelict navy rusting away at anchor.

I bought a cardboard cutout of Anderson Silva and stuck it in my back yard. I've been kicking the shit out of it. I think I'm ready for the UFC.

No, carriers don't deploy alone. They can't. Carriers themselves are big floating targets, as they don't have the shipboard weapons systems. They lead carrier strike groups; which consists of destroyers, cruisers, and fast attack submarines. One of our destroyers alone can solo what Iran put up against that toy carrier.

Cardboard Ship cutouts used by the Persian empire in a training exercise is specifically mentioned in the book of Daniel as being a final sign of the end times.....

The CVN's main weapon is the embarked air wing however, not correct, Nimitz Class carriers (10 are active) have anti-air and anti surface systems as well.

The USS George H.W. Bush for example I know has:

MK29 ESSM (Surf to Air)
RIM 116 RAM (Surf to Air)
CIWS (Missile defense, also anti surf or air)

So with Iran being "defiant" here, how many think a nuke deal with the Iranians would actually followed by them?

And that's kind of where I'm going with it. Not really worried about it, just wondering how insipid this "posturing" is.

Aren't we petrified by North Korea being able to shoot missiles into the ocean? Maybe they will combine with Iran and be able to shoot rusted and unprotected hulks just as well! I know that I am ready to go to my luxury hidey hole at a moments notice!

If they do join together, does that mean we'll start to see mockups that have missiles that can be used to fool us a la Trojan horse style?

Rollyn01,

I know. I have always been leery of floating wooden horses. Especially the large ones. To get a large wooden horse to float about upright would mean that there would be a heavily weighted set of wooden hooves. Why would the hooves be so heavy unless there are many non wooden missiles stored in them?

Iran's latest weapons technology advance in action. Not sure how they're going to mount a nuclear warhead on this new weapon?

That was classic. No doubt Dad was piloting and earned a serious ass chewing from the little princess.

Where the hell is Rainmaker when you need him? He'd probably come up with some crazy conspiracy about how this is just a prelude to some crazy new drone prototype that they made as a doll to lull us into a false sense of security.

Did you notice how Dad shouted "Allahu Akbar (God is Great)" as the new nuclear tipped drone went into the fire of death?
