Would be pretty easy - one official already said it would take less than 30 minutes to destroy their naval operations. Take out the airports and there's not really a lot else they could do.

NOT JUST A NAVY ESCORT BUT A BLOCAIDE OFALL VESSELS GOING TO OR FROM IRAN! THE NUMBER
ONE MISSION OF THE U.S. NAVY IS TO KEEP THE SEALANES OPEN. EVER SINCE OPEC STARTED (1973?),
THE ARAB LEAGUE OF NATIONS HAS BEEN SHOVING THEIR BLACK GOLD AND BLOOD TINGED MUD DOWN
OUR THROATS WHILE MOCKING THE DECENT AND INTERNATIONALLY ACCEPTED STANDARDS OF
COMMERSE AND STICKING UP OUR MOST SENSITIVE PORTS WHERE THE SUN NEVER SHINES. IRAN IS NOT
JUST A GUT WRENCHING "ENEMA" TO US, BUT AN ENEMY TO ALL ARABS AND MUSLIMS THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE
World. BLOCK THEIR ACCESS TO THE OUTSIDE WORLD BY AIR, LAND AND SEA.. THEY CAN SEE HOW LONG THEY'LL
SURVIVE WITH NOTHING TO EAT BUT THEIR OIL. MAYBE THEN, AND ONLY THEN WILL THE PEOPLE, THE PROUD,
TRUE AND DECENT IRANIANS I KNOW THEM TO BE HAVING SERVED WITH THEM BACK IN 1976 & 77 WHEN I WAS IN THE U.S. NAVY, WILL STANDUP FOR GOOD AGAINST THEIR LEADERS AND LET THEM KNOW THEY'RE TIRED OF BEING ISOLATED FROM THE CIVILIZED WORLD AND BEINGS PRESSEDDEEPER INTO THE DARKNESS BETWEEN "IROQ" IRAQ AND A HARD PLACE?

The whole sanctions campaign against Iran is an Israeli and neocon project.
The US Congress has been bought by the Israel Lobby. US media are dominated by Israel supporters.
The US has no business surrounding Iran.
Just like the Iraq boondoggle which bankrupted the country, Israel is at it again, trying to get the USA to do its dirty work. Every time you buy fuel you are paying a tax for Israel-inspired aggression against Iran.

We never had any business doing business with this foreign hater of Americans in the first place. We have enough oil and energy resources here and on friendly soils. We do not need their oil. We need religious and political freedoms. Reportedly they have had on trial for many months with this preacher held in jail away from his family for hypostysy-refusing to refuse Christianity and bow down and accept Muslism-or death! Is this what America wants? I pray we have not sunk this low to do business with such heathens of no mercy.

Have the UN and its member nations issue sanctions against Iran. I believe it would be particularly effective if many of Iran's neighboring nations participated in this action.

Iran is approximately six months from a nuclear weapons test and they have hired a Soviet nuclear physicist. The question of war is not if but when. What if they did not test but launched with the confidence that the process is correct. I am not a fan of Israel; however, they make the most sense and are within range. I do not see this ending well and we can only blame ourselves for thinking that diplomacy will work. We should actually take lessons from our past and accept that you cannot apply reason to insanity.

Rest assured, the U. S. Military has submarines and naval carriers in the area. It has already been decided that they can only close the area once, their navy will be destroyed in 2 or 3 days. End of story, we need no declaration of war to do this. The U. S. Military takes responsibility to keep all water ways world wide open, and free to trade. Speculators are driving the price of crude oil up, Iran would like to think they are a threat, and the speculators are giving them aid by driving prices up, treason, really.
