What they didn't show is the F-18's surrounding them. Back in the 70's, when the Russian Bears used to overfly us on the old Coral Maru, we'd intercept and escort them with our F-4's. If the Iranian A/C even attempted to show an aggressive move toward the Stennis, Bye-Bye. Same with their subs, probably each one trailed by an attack boat, one tube opens, bye-bye.
Hell, the 5th Fleet alone has the power to make Iran a military non-entity, without boots on the ground.

Oh, Jeez.

They took pictures of the John Stennis, and they parade the video around claiming it demonstrates something? These people are true nut jobs.

It demonstrates they are well aware we are watching them.

They tried this crap back in the 80's and got one of their boats blown out of the water. In the same area too. But we had President Regan then, the Obamasiah wont do anything.
