In your fantasy world, maybe. As a fact, we are dithering about blowing up their nuke program right now because Europeans might wet their pants, and there are supposedly civilians nearby. The Iranians see and understand that, even if you do not. Our credibility does not exactly stand high right now. We can't even control our domestic defeatists and traitors, let alone weak-kneed allies, let alone quietly hostile great powers, let alone open enemies. They defy us and they laugh at our threats. And right now, they are right to do so - we are bluffing, hamstrung by moral midgets.

Excellent summation.
