Disagree.
1 Iranians would of rallied to the government(IMO)
2 Invading Iran is quite another thing than invading Iraq, MUCH larger in size, population and size/quality of the army
3 There's an old saying, to a hammer every problem is a nail. All we should be doing (IMO) is provieding support for the students and (for the most part) those who want to bring the regime down.

Dear Valin, I am not sure if you remember me, we used argue years ago over the same thing the wisdom of invading Iraq.

My point was, and still is; the enemies are the fanatic Muslims. They are funded and supported by Iran, and Saudi Arabia. Saddam was a contained secular dictator who actually oppressed the fanatic Islamists just like Assad id doing now. By messing with Saddam we created a more radical Islamic center in Iraq that was not there before we got there. If we wanted to invade Iran, we would have found much more allies and supporters because the whole world hate the Ayatollahs regime. Best regards.

Argentina's military regime invades the Falklands. Thatcher should do nothing because re-taking the Falklands would:

Did invading Iraq rally the Iraqis to Saddam? I saw on C-SPAN a speech (pep rally) by Supreme Guide Khamenei in some huge mosque to the Officers of the Iranian Air Force. You should see those guys, old, fat and sloppy. I'd love to see some analysis of the Iranian Army, which couldn't do crap to Saddam's Army in 8 years of war other than throw a million young people into the minefields to get killed. I see them more preparing an post-defeat insurgency, like Saddam did. While we were screwing around with the UN, Saddam was training his intelligence service for terrorism and leaderless resistance. The Mullahs are doing the same.

I wish the Administration had been doing more to set up an Iranian resistance from 9/12/01. Only the Iranians will be able to defeat the remnants of the Mullah regime.

We should be doing Mind ****s on the Mullahs, like spreading rumors of a military coup, offer bounties to Iranian pilots in flying planes into Iraq and invite anti-Mullah students over for training. We should have training camps in both East (Afghanistan) and West (Iraq) to train the leaders of the new Iran. We should be propagandizing the post-Mullah regime, for example of paying individual Iranians the profits from oil and gas, rather than having the Mullahs waste it all on the nuclear bomb. Discredit Khomeini and Khomeinism by pointing out his non-Iranian, indeed British background and how he hated Iranians. Play up Iran's glorious history before the Mullahs came in and a glorious future for Iranians without the Mullahs. Point out the corruption and hypocrisy of the Mullahs, while Iranians suffer. Point out the incompetence of the Mullahs, Bam relief or lack thereof. Let's Roll!
