That is a totally incorrect statement. The U.S. military defeated the iraqi military like a hot knife going through butter. Making U.S. soldiers play policemen after the war was won is another matter, and quite foolish IMO.
Something similar happened in viet nam, where the U.S. military won all the battles but politicians were still able to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
You're whole premise about iran being able to give the U.S. a good fight in a land war has been debunked here and everywhere else many times over.
If you are finally convinced, then everyone will know that if there ever was a war between the U.S. and iran, there would not be an invasion of iran by large U.S. combat formations. Again what would happen is that most of iran's combat assets would be destroyed in place and from long range in a very short period of time - maybe even a few days.
The next likely thing to happen would be that iran's current theocratic government would fall as people realized that the organizations used to keep them in fear no longer existed.

I agree, but only because Americans are not passionate about winning.
If Iran instigated something that caused an uproar in men ages 18-35, Iran would be in trouble.
