If I recall, wasn’t Iraq and Iran at war for some years, and it was basically a stalemate? Sure Iran started pulling ahead somewhat, then America
helped Iraq, and well yeah you know the results.
In all those years Iraq and Iran were at war, nothing came of it. In all of those 120 hours when the United States was at war with Iraq in 1992,
Iraq’s military machine was utterly annihilated.
See where I’m going with this?
Now fast forward 14-15 years, and think of the new toys that the United States has, and all the lessons they learned of two Gulf Wars, I really
don’t think Iran stands any chance whatsoever in a military engagement.
Iran’s only rebuttal is to bleed us, and make psych warfare on our men. I can imagine Iranian sniper teams, civilian dressed saboteurs, and the
If we occupied Iran, we would be fighting a guerilla war for many, many years.
When addressing Hitler on the occupying of the Eastern part of the Soviet Union, a General made a statement, “My Fuhrer, we will be battling
Partisans for at least twenty years.” Hitler replied, “Good, Germany will remain alert for twenty years.”
We don’t have the willpower the Germans had in World War 2.
Thank god at that, I don’t want to see our military machine in a quagmire anymore than it has to, and already is.
