I doubt the US sends their aircraft carrier group through the straight of Hormuz, the carrier group will stay within striking distance in the Indian Ocean. I wonder if the US will react the same if any of its allies being attacked? The US accuses Iran for the drone attack on the Saudi oil refinery. Iran may tries to do something like that again. I think the Iranian retaliation will be by proxy somewhere in the ME. They may also attack European oil tankers in the Gulf. They "captured" one a while back.
USS Abraham Lincoln (aircraft carrier strike group) sailed through Hormuz in the middle of November.

I’m not sure the US will react or assist if an ally is attacked.

I know that the Royal Navy is there to protect any British registered ships in the area.

They only captured a British tanker in retaliation after Royal Marines seized an Iranian tanker in Gibraltar.

The Iranians will sacrifice almost their entire navy to try to hit the carrier. It can be difficult to protect it in limited waters as the Persian Gulf

Yes, particularly against the fast attack craft/speed boats that the Revolutionary Guards have developed over the last 20 odd years.

Remember what happened to destroyer USS Cole?

Ballistic missiles have been fired from inside Iran at multiple U.S. military facilities in Iraq tonight. Interesting times ahead !

Yes, but that was Al Queda attacking the destroyer. I remember when the Iranians mined the Hormuz and one US ship was damaged by one of them. The US launched a naval operation to clear the mines and was fighting the Iranian navy (Iran has two navies, the army navy and the revolutionary guards navy)

Our fuel prices are going up, how about yours?

Do you think the US will retaliate the missile attacks?

Probably not. They’ll let Iran have their retaliation.
