Can be a very good idea, If Abbas and Sharon get along and there are progress in those needed peace talks in Israel, I would not want to be a Iranian General witout alot of Zulfiqar tanks for protection to the "Revolutionary Guards" thats for sure.

When you are an absolutist government, it behooves you to make statements like this. Of course the USA would not be driven out "in a matter of months". It may be pure nonsense, but you have to pacify your people and give them assurances telling them that "We are safe, there is no danger."

Any form of non-democratic government that acknowledges to its people that they would probably lose if they were invaded -- isn't going to stay in power for long. Otherwise, you look weak and you are ripe for overthow.

Oops, Sherman, got my "I" countries mixed up. Well, still if Iraq with Saddam in power was no match for their flight in, I seriously doubt the Iranians could do much better.

Hehe, lesson well learned...

My personal opinion is that the US can't repeat Iraq in Iran...not that I'm bashing American armed forces but there's only so much you can do at one time.

I read today in our local newspaper which quoted a Financial Times reporter who wrote that the Iraq campaign is swallowing 5 billion $ a month.
You do the math from here on.

As long as nation building isn't a mission in Iran, it should be rather successful militarily.
But politically and diplomatically I think any such action will be a real loss to the US.

Therein lies the dilema: Once you invade and oust the ruling government of any country, Nation Building cannot be avoided anymore. You can't just pack up and leave a nation in complete chaos, that would be extremely irresponsible.

The fun part is, everybody is guaranteed to accuse say that was your primary purpose for invading to begin with.

TEHRAN (AFP) - Jafari, the commander of the Revolutionary Guards' ground forces, said Iran now had to capacity to defeat any invader in the space of just weeks. "We pushed the Baathist enemy from our country within one and a half years," he said, referring to the opening campaigns of the 1980-88 war with Iraq. "With the experience and skills from that war and in the case of any invasion, the invaders will be defeated in less than one and a half months," Jafari said. "Even though the US and Israel do not have the courage to invade the Iranian nation, the Revolutionary Guards are in very good state of readiness to response to threats," General Yahya Rahim Safavi said.




My feelings where humor at first because he's as ludicrous as the Iraqi Information minister but then they moved to "Really? Well let's just go in there and call this guy's bluff!"
