Iran's Aircraft Carrier

It's not a real aircraft carrier, it's a mock up of an American carrier that they built to use for target practice and propaganda. You can see where the "flight deck" has been damaged during February's practice. Real American carriers are a thousand feet long. This one is only about 700 feet. Via IHS Jane's 360.
    The Middle East is so weird. Both the USA and Iran are posturing about how evil the other is, yet we are allied with Iran in fighting against ISIS, but we are also allied with Saudi Arabia, who is fighting against the Iran supplied Houthi rebels in Yemen.
