You have to wonder if Iran is planning something big to be building what they call a simple replica of an American aircraft carrier, the USS Nimitz, to then have it destroyed in upcoming war games.

The official state TV line is that the mock-up will be used in a movie.

With our current leaderless Obama administration you have to wonder if we really understand the threats we face in the world today.

An Iranian newspaper is reporting that the country’s military plans to target a mock-up American aircraft carrier during upcoming war games.

The Sunday report by independent Haft-e Sobh daily quotes Adm. Ali Fadavi, navy chief of the powerful Revolutionary Guards as saying Iranian forces should “target the carrier in the trainings, after it is completed.”

Adm. Fadavi said: “We should learn about weaknesses and strengths of our enemy.”

This is the first reaction by Iranian officials to a March report that said Iran is building a simple replica of the USS Nimitz in a shipyard in the southern port of Bandar Abbas. Iranian officials did not comment then but state TV said it would be used in a movie.
