Iran Blows Up Fake US Carrier on TV

Iranian officials had more than a dozen speedboats attack a replica of a US aircraft carrier today and featured the large-scale naval drill on a state TV broadcast. The nationally-televised show of force by the country's elite Revolutionary Guard occurred near the strategically vital entrance of the Persian Gulf. The 'Great Prophet 9' drill was held near the Strait of Hormuz, through which about a fifth of the world's oil passes.
