The Phalanx CIWS weapons system was developed just to answer such a threat. I would say Iran is in a much better position now than it was 30 years ago to attack ships in the gulf as far as missiles go, so let's hope the Navy's weapons development has kept pace. But I wouldn't say they can produce any real threat to our ships. I wouldn't consider diesel subs from N. Korea to be anything other than a floating coffin for their sailors, should they attempt to use one against our fleet.
It's a game of brinkmanship and posturing from the Iranians, or more likely Israel crying wolf.

Is it just me or has anyone else really had it up to the eyes with these "Imminent Iranian Apocalypse" articles?
