They have the fastest and strongest Anti-Ship missiles on the world, the soviet SS-N-22 Sunburn (Faster then any other U.S. missile, hence there is not so much chance to intercept it. The greatest in that missile is... one missile per one capital ship minus.).
Plus, Iran is using Russian technology. The advantage of that radar system... it's able to detect completely the U.S. stealth crafts, such as the F-117 and B-2 (The U.S. never admit this, but I learned this in the academy of my country, from a Colonel, because my country had the same Russian technology too before we joined to the European Union. Just to tell you, a Hungarian shot down the only F-117 on the world.)
The Russians are supplying great SAMs to them, what is usually not the favorite of the U.S. crafts.
So, honestly, whoever is going to attack Iran, that one must face with sure retaliation, great resistance and sure defeat.

1. The Ukraine made passive Kolchuga detection systems that Iran has. The diffrence from Irak is that Irak had active radar system that where easy to deteck. Iran has passive radars which you cant detect if locked on to.
In an interview this week with the Associated Press, Dani said the F-117 was detected and shot down during a moonless night - just three days into the war - by a Soviet-made SA-3 Goa surface-to-air missile (SAM). "We used a little innovation to update our 1960s-vintage SAMs to detect the Nighthawk," Dani said. He declined to discuss specifics, saying the exact nature of the modification to the warhead's SAM guidance system remains a military secret. It involved "electromagnetic waves," was all that Dani, who now owns a small bakery in this sleepy village just north of Belgrade, would divulge. The Pentagon has confirmed the stealth fighter was shot down by an SA-3 missile in the range of Dani's SAMs. The US military believes a combination of clever tactics, quick learning and luck came together in bringing down the F-117 fighter. But James O'Halloran, editor of Jane's Land-Based Air Defense, said the Serbs were probably able to down the fighter precisely because of their radar system's outmoded technology. "We know he is telling the truth. The F-117 was designed to be stealthy against modern radars. Against old, long-pulse duration radars, its not stealthy," said O'Halloran. "People in the West do not like to say that."
