Default Iran Building Fake Aircraft Carrier To Blow Up?

The latest example of Iran giving North Korea a run for its money when it comes to craziness

Iran is building a nonworking mock-up of an American nuclear-powered aircraft carrier that United States officials say may be intended to be blown up for propaganda value.

Intelligence analysts studying satellite photos of Iranian military installations first noticed the vessel rising from the Gachin shipyard, near Bandar Abbas on the Persian Gulf, last summer. The ship has the same distinctive shape and style of the Navy’s Nimitz-class carriers, as well as the Nimitz’s number 68 neatly painted in white near the bow. Mock aircraft can be seen on the flight deck....

Navy and other American intelligence analysts surmise that the vessel, which Fifth Fleet wags have nicknamed the Target Barge, is something that Iran could tow to sea, anchor and blow up — while filming the whole thing to make a propaganda point, if, say, the talks with the Western powers over Iran’s nuclear program go south..

lol... they should just try to blow up one of our real aircraft carriers.

i would love nothing more than to have an excuse to nuke them off the face of the planet, and then sell their (our) oil to the rest of the world.

The crafty Iranians have drawn the attention of Congress

The senior Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee says Iran's construction of a mock-up U.S. aircraft carrier demonstrates Iran's continued lack of good faith.

"We don't really know what it means, but I for sure don't trust the Iranians,'' Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., said Saturday. "It's some kind of a ruse and whatever they are up to, it's no good.''...

CNN said one U.S. official described it as is more akin to a Hollywood set than an actual warship.
