File under: Govt of Iran
#1 Iran's seeming strategeery to isolate the US CVNS + Gator Boyz, etal. to the Sea of Oman + beyond shows they do care about the deadly after-effects of having to detonate Nukes-WMDS near or on their own soil in order to defeat a foreign invasion, occupation force.
Fighting major conventional sea war inside the Persian Gulf agz the USN is undoubtedly one of Iran's last L-A-S-T options/resort to save its budding NucProg - its only real or best weapon at this time to counter the US CVNS + Gator Boyz, etal. is the various "Arab/Muslim/Islamic Spring" + the Nuclear Ummah + US-NATO-vs-Russia-China.

#2 Wondering how long it would take the US to clear Iran of Mullahs without a land invasion...

(seal the ship and don't breathe the Vaporized sea water for a month or so)

#6 Sub drones cut cables (snip snip) and tow the buggers into the nearest Iranian harbor, then release them. Then, back for more.

#7 If they had the ability and capability, they would carry out the minesweeping by manned systems
Does that mean the Iranians have trained their 12-year old 'martyrs' to hold their breath for hours?

#8 Horsefeathers. The Iranians have old tech at best. Trained monkeys that can swim. We have trained dolphins.
