It seems that there is a video circulating depicting the bombing of a US aircraft and destruction of an aircraft carrier.
I seem to vaguely recall there was another highly-militant country a few years ago, that bombed a number of USN ships in an American harbour, in a surprise attack, that was designed to make the Americans cower and come to grovel at the attacking nations feet.
I also recall the surprise attack didn't bring about the required result, and it all ended very unhappily, and at enormous financial, life, and infrastructure cost, for that nation.
