Personally i think war with Iran would not be a good thing and i hope i never see it happening. Iran will change direction on its own owing to the
demographics of the nation - over half the population is under the age of 30 and they like things like free internet access, democracy, etc.
However, to keep this purely in the spirit of your original post (ie military numbers), the UK could definitely take on Iran. Pure numbers mean
nothing at all when you have advanced technology on your side. Quite simply, we have weapons that Iran could not defend against which would quite
quickly lead to air superiority. Once you have control of the skies you can move with impunity far easier and focus on more targeted strikes.
It is a moot point though as even if it came to it, i doubt TPTB would properly equip the military with the necessary munitions and machinery - they
would leave it years and then have a public enquiry into how things were allowed to go so wrong!
