Correct the US probably has tech to shoot down a missle coming toward a carrier.
But what about 30 missles?
They wont send them in one at a time..
If I was against the US Fleet..
I would prepare a launch of hundereds, if not THOUSANDS of missles...
make it a major exercies..
at dawn, on a day never expected.. absoltuley saturate them with missles...
in one fowl swoop you could obliterate the entire fleet.

Anybody who thinks Iran has a weapons system that could take out a state-of-the-art U.S. Naval Vessel is simply living in LA-LA Land. Give me a break.
