This is a farce by a wannabe police state government looking to raise a furor over nothing.
Yes, definitely a case of an over reaction by a jerking knee. The stupidity of this is that it is costly both financially and as a public relations
exercise. And yet it doesn't really make Iran's position any weaker.
Of course meanwhile US FMS policy will continue to see more unreliable "allies" rewarded simply for not being too much of a thorn in the US's side,
while real friends get to pay through the nose and get snubbed over supposedly sensitive technology. Technologies that ironically they are sometimes
better at protecting than the US, like say Ohhh... F-14's sold to Iran that end up being gifted to Russia. Nice one guys
As for pinning the Iranians to the wall. Hopefully internal factional politics amongst the clerics, and a population that overwhelmingly hates them,
will do the job before "W" gets any more bright ideas.
