It's just such a terrible, terrible shame that here are no gays in Iran.

I'm not saying they shouldn't. I'm saying it's a dumb idea.I think they were showing the hypocrisy of how the US is always floating around off the coast of Iran.
I doubt we would blow Iran's Navy up for being in international waters, but I'm somewhat sure our Navy would be floating around near them and our armaments would be ready to take them out if if they did anything other than float off the coast - something I would expect from any other country, including Iran, if the US is floating around off their coast.
My earlier response was to an intrusion into our territorial waters - not international waters. Territorial waters are normally ~14 miles from the low-water coastline.
I don't want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was wedding between the religious fundamentalists and political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it. ~ Billy Graham in Parade magazine February 1, 1981.
Even a fraction of our navy could wipe them out. People need to stop freaking out so much about Iran. I'm not saying that they pose no threat whatsoever, but their ability to project power is very limited.
The most economically devastating of Iranís potential responses would be closure of the Strait of Hormuz. They can blame their leadership for the presence of the US navy. Stop threatening the worlds oil supply might be a more productive policy for Iran.
