I'm not sure what you mean by this. Did the Iranians sail their patrol boat & river ferry to a port in Syria to avoid them getting sunk by the USN or did they do that to threaten the USN with some unspecified action? I can't say that we're terribly worried about it either way.
Old Ahmadinner Plate might be a loon but he's not that mad.
They still fly the F 14 considering they have had it for 20+ years and still can't manufacture spare parts for it and are relying on canabilising airframes to keep them flying it won't be much of a suprise if they turn out an uprated Gloucester Meteor
Some of those articles from their foreign policy are mental.
I didn't realise Oman offered to mediate between the US and Iran, nor that Iran rejected the offer.
They talk like a bunch of fairies too "Diplomat Warns of Iran's Crushing Response to Israel's Slightest Hostile Move "
"Iran is not a nation to sit still and just observe threats from fragile materialist powers which are being eaten by worms from inside"
""Anyone who harbors any thought of invading the Islamic Republic of Iran - or even if the thought crosses their mind - should be prepared to receive strong blows and the steel fists of the military"
""Iran will respond with full force to any aggression or even threats in a way that will demolish the aggressors from within,""

Both ships made in the UK! There is a nice reference on Wiki about the one of the Alvis Class Frigates being sunk by an A-6 after it unsuccessfully tried to engage it, the A-6 and its Wingman turned around and launched some harpoons sinking it!
