Iranians Harass U.S. Navy

They must know they can’t win and that any attack, or credible threat of attack, will see their ships annihilated so why would the Iranians harass the U.S. Navy in the Straits of Hormuz.

In one radio transmission, the Iranians told the U.S. Navy: “I am coming at you. You will explode in a couple of minutes,” the U.S. military officials told CNN.

The only conclusion I can come to is that the Iranian government wants a war with the United States in order to spur nationalist feelings and prop up their unpopular government.  Within days of a war initiated by the Iranians, Iran would cease to have an air force and a navy.  Their ports in the Persian Gulf would be closed.  The U.S. would own the Iranian air space and nothing would fly.  Their air defense system, the same as that used by Syria with dramatic effectiveness as demonstrated by Israel’s purported strike on a Syrian weapons of mass destruction site,  would not last long.  Lines of communication targets:  roads, bridges, telecommunication towers and relays, television and radio stations would be dropped and go silent.  Their gasoline refinery would be eliminated.

Why would they want to bring about their own destruction?
