I do believe the USA can defeat Iran in a war. I don't think it would be done quickly or easily. After 2 or 3 months of bombin, they would be in
pretty bad shape, with communications, and resupply. However, the amount of infiltraters they can send to Iraq is a problem....If the insurgency in
Iraq now numbers in the 20,000 range, what would happen if those numbers increaced to 80,000 or more.
Also if the Iranian could shut down the gulf with the anti-ship missles for a prolonged period, we would see the price of oil skyrocket. We can take
these misslles out but they have to fire them first giving up there location. Remember the scuds in gulf war 1.
Truthfully its naive to think any war would be quick and easy, remember how easy it was going to be in Iraq.
