I don't think it would even make sense to compare a war with Iran with the war in Iraq. Iran has not been held down by embargoes and constant other issues and set backs like Iraq had.
On the other hand, Iran has a huge youth population who hates their govt and wants U.S. involvement.

The US would never allow a conflict that would cause 50,000 casualties especially with a nation so stupid as to internationally declare its intent to produce nuclear weapons. Also lets remember this so-called rich oil nation allows 90% of its poplulation to live in abject poverty while the ruling class pontificates is rediculous nuclear aggenda. Iran will be horrifically defeated just like any other nation who threatens the Western civilized world.
