An image grab taken from Iran’s Al-Alam television station shows what the TV claims is a US aircraft carrier cruising in Gulf waters. Iran’s Arabic language television station broadcast footage it claimed showed a US aircraft carrier cruising in Gulf waters it said was taken by an unmanned Iranian drone.
Iran’s Arabic language television station broadcast footage it claimed showed a US aircraft carrier cruising in Gulf waters it said was taken by an unmanned Iranian drone.
The brief minute-long film, which was shown on Al-Alam television’s evening news bulletin, showed wobbly aerial footage of an aircraft carrier stacked with war planes as it sailed.
The television’s anchor said the film, the property of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guard, showed a vessel from “the US fleet in the Persian Gulf“.
“A source in the Revolutionary Guard said the drone carried out its mission without US fighter pilots reaching it,” the television said.
It said there were 10 such films taken by the drone which showed “more precise information and details about military equipment, foreign forces, and their activities in the Persian Gulf.”
And America is supposed to be impressed how? Or threatened why?
What Iran did not show were the nuclear submarines in the Mediterranean Sea and Indian Ocean which have targeted Iran’s military centers with, for example, Trident II D-5 SLBM (UGM-133).
Should Iran attack a United States Aircraft carrier group, those missiles WILL fly.
A more likely scenario is an American/Israeli conventional attack upon Iran and the taking of Iranian oil field operations and the destruction of the Bushehr nuclear power plant in the Iranian Persian Gulf port of Bushehr.
Iran shouldn’t threaten the United States over United Nations sanctions or whatever. The Great Satan may awake and bury them.
Readers at LGF say those are F-14s on the port bowâ€”and that fighter was retired in February 2006.
