There is a valid point though: The Iranians have modelled their nuclear facilities completely on the assumption that the US or Israel will come knocking. Hence we know they have widely scattered facilities, deeply buried, soeme in civilian neighbourhoods, etc. It will be more difficult then Osiraq by an orderr of magnitude and may well require teams on the ground co-ordinating the strikes.

No one is saying that a specific operation will be easy, however, never say "impossible".

I'll explain this through one of my favorite quotes:

"If an expert says it can't be done, get another expert."
-David Ben-Gurion, the first Prime Minister of Israel.

Likely as not they'll need teams on the ground
doing the demolition. Unless a tactical nuke is
used, I do not think an airstrike with Israels
available planes will accomplish a whole lot
(other than oil and stock price jitters).

The true and lasting solution is deposing the
mullah-ocracy and instituting a representative
democracy in Teheran.
