Reminds me of the 90's,
Saddam and his Republican Gaurd, who were going to wipe out the US Froces.
Damn right. I can remember those jerks parading around with their black scarves and looking badass...once a rocket or two hit the ground, they all run like chicken.
Luckily for oil suppliers, Middle-East countries are just not disciplined enough to cause damage. All they do is plant IEDs at night and mutilate journalists in caves.
Iran won't survive an attack by any country. More, their people is far more educated than the Iraqis and a lot of them UNDERSTAND what democracy means. That's the big difference

I do indeed believe everyone should enjoy those rights. I guess I just disagree with you on how to go about bringing those rights to other countries. The thousands of people who will die in the process of us bringing them those rights will never get to enjoy them. The thousands of survivors probably won’t really care for their new found rights, as they will be too busy mourning the loss of their loved ones.

Honestly, if it's self defense, I don't have an qualms about that, those guys shouldn't be over there to begin with, and they should let their sergeants and commanders know that. They should mention that this is not a war worth fighting considering they will inevitably lose, as all nations have before them and all will after them.
Then their commanders will push the demand up through the ranks until the military understands that it is not an occupation force, but a defensive one, and nothing about invading and then occupying a foreign country is defensive.

They can't even win against the "Insugents" with AK47's, so how is this going to play out with a bigger country, with more people that hate Americans and have more weapons.

That's the entire point...........Iranians won't have to engage us head on military to military to wreak havoc on US forces. Hell they are already supporting the insurgency in Afghanistan and look how much of a headache they are causing. Where the hell do you think the Taliban and other terrorists are getting all their funding, weapons, support?
TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran's "allies around the globe" would retaliate against any strike by the United States, an influential cleric said Friday ahead of a speech by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on the progress of Iran's nuclear project.
Ahmad Khatami, a staunch Ahmadinejad supporter, said Washington would run into a quagmire if it attacked. President Barack Obama is pushing for new U.N. sanctions against Iran but has not ruled out military action to stop it getting a nuclear bomb.
"If America makes a crazy move, its interests will be endangered by Iran's allies around the globe," Khatami, a member of Iran's powerful Assembly of Experts, said at Friday prayers at Tehran University.
Yea, - if ye remain firm, and act aright, even if the enemy should rush here on you in hot haste, your Lord would help you with five thousand angels Making a terrific onslaught.
"But if you're not going to play by the rules, if you're going to be a proliferator, then all options are on the table in terms of how we deal with you," he told reporters.
