Just a reminder:
Work as Usual for U.S.S. John C. Stennis After Warning by Iran - NYTimes.com
Iran is more about pretending to be impressive rather than actually being impressive. I wonder if they really think they're fooling anyone.
Just to play devil's advocate, after the 2003 Bam earthquake, we sent a rescue team to Iran and relations thawed for a time.

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
I feel a colorful metaphor is the correct response.

What could they do to help? Nice gesture, seems kinda empty though.
They just want to be over here when the nukes hit.
The offer seems a little...fishy.
Did they extend the same offer to Cuba?
