Iranian Navy's Perspective of U.S. Carrier Strike Group in the Persian Gulf

Drone video released by the Iranian government as a threat shows the Iranian perspective of the U.S.S. Eisenhower Carrier Strike Group conducting a transit through the Strait of Hormuz into the Persian Gulf. According to the Iranian government, they demanded that the U.S.S. Eisenhower keep all flight operations grounded until the transit was complete and the U.S. Navy complied because they were deathly afraid of what the Iranian Navy would do.


The reality of the situation is that the Iranian drone was still airborne at the courtesy of the U.S. Navy, and flight operations remained grounded because there was no need for the pilots to be in the air at the time. Had Iranian Naval Vessels come with in range of interfering with U.S. Naval Operations, there's a more than 100% chance that the Iranian ships would have taken a visit to meet with the 1988 Iranian Fleet that was entirely destroyed as a proportional response to a mine strike on the USS Samuel B. Roberts.


If you want a good watch, I suggest looking up The Fat Electrician's Video on Operation Praying Mantis.
