There will be no U.S./Iran war. This has all been a a war of words that soon ended after China and Russia told Iran it would not get involved in a U.S./Iranian War.
In this event...the U.S. would have to go in using thousands of Special Forces, Rangers Airborne to secure all Nuclear Sites at the same time...the U.S.N. Fifth Fleet would destroy the entire Iranian Navy as well as Airforce and any costal Military installations.
In a plan that has long been in effect...for the purpose of rendering any Iranian Military counterattack innert as well as keep loss of life to a minimum....USAF B-2's as well as F-22 Raptors would drop High Tech. and powerful...EMP devices. A single one of these can fit inside an F-22's internal Bomb Bay and I am not sure how many a B-2 can carry but I believe it is either 18 larger sized or 27 smaller.
These would create Electromagnetic Pulses without a Nuclear Blast as the use of Nukes is not an option as we have promised both China and Russia continued flow of both Natural Gas for Russia and Iranian Oil for China. The U.S. does not get any oil or Gas from Iran.
China, the world's second largest crude consumer, has long opposed unilateral sanctions that target Iran's energy sector and has tried to reduce tensions that could threaten its oil supply.
Just these actions alone as well as CIA and DIA involvement with helping the Iranian Pro-Democracy Leadership should cause a regime change...ISRAEL WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE! As the only thing that has kept them from already bombing Iranian Nuclear Sites has been the United States as the U.S. does not want the entire Middle East Radioactive after conventional bombing of such sites.
If by some chance the Iranians have purchased a Nuke that can be placed on one of their Missles...as they do not have this level of tech. yet....we will shoot it down as it's range is limited to the Middle East. We have many ways to shoot down an ICBM....and we have had ship and sub ABMS in the region for some time. A standard Raytheon designed Antiaircraft Missle System was redesigned years ago with a breakthrough in powerful and long burn time solid propellent....a version of one of these shot a Satelitte out of the sky a while back. This allowed the U.S. to turn a basic Antiaircraft system numbered in the tens of thousands into...with the help of new powerful Super Computers and Radar systems...into ABM's. As far as I know a Nuclear Powered Free Electron Laser system has been placed in both Alaska and Canada...as far as a USN platform....I am not sure but all carriers and Ageis Class Cruisers will have these installed. Split Infinity...ps...IRAN has no chance.
Washington has expressed concern about Tehran's missiles, which include the Shahab-3 strategic intermediate range ballistic missile with a range of up to 1,000 km (625 miles), the Ghadr-1 with an estimated 1,600 km range and a Shahab-3 variant known as Sajjil-2 with a range of up to 2,400 km.

There are a few things you left out in your original post:
Pros for Iran:
Cons for Iran:
Pros for USA
Cons for USA:
I think in any war game scenario, unless the Russians intervene, the US will have Air Superiority over Iranian territory in about a week. Once you have that, the rest is pretty easy. The Iranian forces are not as technologically equipped or as well trained as the Americans. Air Support will combat any resistance. It would be futile for the Iranians to mount a defense once their Air Force is knocked out.

I honestly think that the NWO will try and start ww3 so as to establish a reason to eliminate our freedom. They want us to fear Iran and talk about who would win or lose. Why?
Because it makes it seem unavoidable. really if you refuse to deploy, or support endless wars, we win. They truly want us to kill each other off. Iran or whoever will be the catalyst to WW3. Look up the history of the NWO. it is not a buzz word. It is not a "conspiracy" it is fact. These people think they can fool us into pushing the button on each other. Dont buy into it. You are being lied to.
say no to WW3 your children will exist to thank you. dont deploy.
India has joined China in saying it will not cut back on oil imports from Iran, despite stiff new U.S. and European sanctions designed to pressure Tehran over its nuclear program.

I see things going down this way. You know how lately in the news the Navy's been rescuing the iranian fishermen? I see that building up to a set up. One of these times the navy's going to get another distress call and going to either come under attack by the "fishermen" or they'll come up to a boat and the crew'll be shot up and the US'll get blamed for it.
