144. US carriers have lost many aircraft, The US Military has only the F-18 left
F-14's were pulled because for corrision in the front landing gear supports, A-6 Intruders are retired, F-16's are gone, most F-15's have airframe problems.

All that is left are a few ground attack F-15's, F-18's and the few new raptors or what ever the new plane is. SO US carriers dont have enough planes to put on the carriers we have.

Nukes? No one in the Middle east would tolerate it, the blow back would be very bad for the US. ANd I dont think the US military command would buy into it.

Modern Iranian SAM Missiles, can they hit a stealth ?

Iran would get the worst of it, but Iran can give us a very bloody nose, given a bit of luck.
