A US Naval Carrier from an Iranian drone

Can you name this Carrier here? (HT to LGF)

And to further the insult from Iran this just in from Drudge Chinese Submarine stalks the Kitty here.
A Chinese submarine stalked a U.S. aircraft carrier battle group in the Pacific last month and surfaced within firing range of its torpedoes and missiles before being detected, The Washington Times has learned.
The surprise encounter highlights China's continuing efforts to prepare for a future conflict with the U.S., despite Pentagon efforts to try to boost relations with Beijing's communist-ruled military.
The submarine encounter with the USS Kitty Hawk and its accompanying warships also is an embarrassment to the commander of U.S. forces in the Pacific, Adm. William J. Fallon, who is engaged in an ambitious military exchange program with China aimed at improving relations between the two nations' militaries.

Go Navy! We are the best no matter what the Dems think about "redeployment". No matter what the MSM says about our Military! We are the Best and America's only hope to win in the War on Terror.

Update from Michelle Malkin's post of 11/13/2006 here.
My husband was a bubblehead from 82-88 and he concurs that The Navy probably knew when the diesel left the Chinese port and was tracking it all the time. Their technology is at least a few generations behind ours. From another bubble head at Michelle's:

The reasoning is simple: you don't want the enemy to know your vulnerabilities OR your capabilities. The only way to know whether this diesel sub was being tracked or not is to wait until we are at war with China. Even then you might never know since the poor, noisy thing would probably be at the bottom of the sea before it ever got within a dozen miles of a US aircraft carrier group.

If you're a betting person, put chips on the fact the Chinese sub's whereabouts were known the second it left Chinese ports. The fact it was able to surface within visual distance of a USS aircraft carrier is due to the simple fact that we are not at war with China -- yet. I pity the Chinese sub's crew if they try that during wartime.

Well put. Don't mess with the US NAVY. You'll find yourself at the bottom of the SEA!
