I did not have time to fully respond last night; so let me finish, please.

I rather doubt that Iran intends to "kill" us, with "tons of nukes."

Rather, I believe that Iran intends to blackmail "The Great Satan"--especially as regarding the Gulf of Hormuz (and perhaps as regarding Israel also).

So it would really be much better if you did not caricature my position.

Well, President Trump sent missiles to Syria; so in order to find a Republican president who was non-interventionist, you must go back to the late George H.W. Bush.

Oh, wait. He did kick Saddam Hussein out of Kuwait...

seems like more than 2.
Well, according to you, we may still use "spies, drone devices, long range cameras, [and] making friends with locals who can carry device where you can't go"--which you appear to regard as being just as effective.
