Whenever you see a pic of a US Aircraft Carrier you can't help but be astonished by the sheer prowess and tremendous proportion, and it is an even mightier sight if and when you get the opportunity to see one in real life, you will be absolutely amazed. This giant construct is truly the epitome of US power projection.

Iran has much better ships than these aircraft carriers that the USA has. Soon the world will feel Irans power. Our new secret submarines are now in place outside USA ports to sink these carriers before they leave the usa waters.
