And we need not occupy Iran. We simply need to displace their government, destroy their nuclear capacity the old fashioned way (brick by brick), and then depart.

This is the same error that has led to the status quo in Iraq.

Yes, there are some Westernized Persians who, if they were in power would be better for us.

But Amanutjob was popularly elected, his nuclearization policy is very popular, and the majority of young males of military age are fanatics, with more on the way in the 12-16 age range.

Shia Iran = Shinto Japan.

If we aren't prepared for conquest and occupation, we should pursue a policy of appeasement.

"If we aren't prepared for conquest and occupation, we should pursue a policy of appeasement."

I vote conquest, skipping quickly through normal weapon, to big deadly demoralizaing ones.

The fewer remaining to pacify and occupy, the better.

Set the example we missed with Iraq.

Call it payback for 1979.

There is no need to occupy. There is only a need to settle matters with the current regime, and then to depart. Eventually, a regime that values longevity will come to power.
