Heh.
Not often a carrier will “stop” in the middle of the ocean.

Bluster.

A carrier is no threat when it is stopped.

At speed, and turned into the wind, you better watch out, though.

Thats like ordering cars on the nearby freeway to keep going,, then bragging about how powerful you must be,, because traffic keeps zooming by.

Here’s what I think is happening.

He’s using reverse psychology on obama. He’s got a bet with his buddies that he can get a US carrier to stop where he wants it. Knowing the obama is a narcissistic mental retard, who is up against a wall to look like hes large and in charge, he throws this threat out, in the hopes that obama will get on the phone and tell the carrier group to do just that...to show them “he’s not afraid”.

When it happens, the Iranians will get a big yuck, the AF commander wins his bet, and the international community see’s what a pansy-a***d light weight obama is...again.

Didn’t think the carrier was looking to stop anywhere in the first place. Just more bravado by Iran trying to look important and influential.

Kinda hard for a carrier to “stop” while conducting flight operations. Maybe we should just chalk this up to a mis-translation?

I dare each and every Iranian tank to drive five miles into the Persian Gulf and then stop.

I dare each and every Iranian jet to stop for five minutes over the Persian Gulf (they don’t have Harriers, do they?)
