I will be proven right on this. Iran should have been the initial target of the coalition;I said this over a year ago and will say it again! Iran poses the most serious challenge to us for a variety of reasons that most planners and strategy experts completely miss. Anyone who reads topographical maps can deleniate the major differences right away. Geographically the land of iran is mountanious and more difficult to attack; it is not like iraq where you have the broad flood plain of the Euphrates River to run Tanks and armored vehiciles freely at will. We should have gone directly at Tehran from the get go!

The russians are totally committed to secureing a warm water port in the Persian Gulf. They have committed themselves to an illegal Nuclear program designed ultimately to deliver fissionable material to make atomic bombs. Plain and simple we shot ourselves squarely in the foot on this one. If we had given the right signals initially we could have successfuly promoted a massive student riot country wide and would have brought down Katami's government right under their noses!

Now we have a burdensome debt and nothing essentially to show for it. Saddam laughs us to derision and continues to direct and harass our troops in the field. If we had gone into iran as we should have in the firsr place they would not have had any opportunity to bury or spirit away illegal WMD's that they surely do have; courtesy of the russians. Now we are forced to fight a rear guard action of massive proportions. The iranians have got to be taken out and their Sunburn Missiles with them that russia supplied. The six Nuclear Reactors need to be neutralized immediately. You don't have to worry guys we will find WMD's in iran even Barney Fife couldn't miss on this one!

Why do you think that massive revolt against the government won't work now?
