Just imagine if there had been three machine gun nests on Napoleon's side at Waterloo, he would have taken a lot more down with him, you know?
Iran has a weapon that will beat the US every time, religious extremeism.

Ok, get this. Japan is an island. Iran isn't. Japan was attacked by a new "wonder weapon" that broke the will of the government after almost a year of bombing raids before. Iran wouldn't be so easy a nut to crack because it has it's own oil, has borders with many other countries, allies across the middle east (if not with governments than with the people), and has the terrain that would prove to be a thorn in any invader's side.
Our National Guard isn't so green anymore now is it ?
So what's the Active Duty up to while our National Guard is holding down the fort in Iraq ?
