Iran is Persian. Never, ever, in history did the Persians ever, fight well against a Western power.
They never have, they never will.

The "miracle" you are referring to is might simply a change of watch for u.s. and iran.
We obviously just had ours but the iranian presidential campaign is about to begin, with elections five months away in june. I'm sure we already have a covert operation already in full swing influencing their gov to nominate and elect a docile version of Ahmadinejad.
This also buys us some time in tweaking the collapse of our economy to optimally encourage the embrace of a north american union along with a new currency.
