If Iran backs down, BHO can crow that we have the upper hand in the talks, and we should give them a chance to prove they are trustworthy and will honor any agreement that can be reached because they fear us...blah, blah, blah. Bull****! We'll see how an actual confrontation with Iranian ships is handled, but I'll hazard a guess it won't be us giving them problems, but one of the other countries that are also involved, if it goes that far, and since none of them are fond of us, and they don't want any agreement made with Iran, I wouldn't rule out an "accidental" hit to one of our ships, by one of them. What'll we do then, and why are we even involved in this quagmire?
