To be honest, I doubt that the report is true. The terrorist regime in Tehran is not that stupid to start a war with us that will cause the total destruction of their military machine by our Air and Naval power alone.

All “unnamed” officials from a “tabloid”. If and when I ever see a column of Iranian tanks reported by the USAF entering Iraq then I will show some concern.

<<< This article has absolutely nothing to do with our immigration problems. >>>

Really? But pse get your head out of wherever. We’re in Iraq and Iranians illegally crossing the Iraqi border has nothing to do with illegal immigration? I say it has, except that in this case, these ba$tard$ just happen to kill British and American troops.

If nothing else the source(the sun tabloid) is more than dubious.

Please explain to me how the amnesty bill, the way we are managing our borders and how we are managing the war in Iraq have any relationship to each other?

Ah, I just figured it out, you all hate the way Bush is managing both.

At least please be honest about it instead of making meaningless comparisons.

I’m a little skeptical. On the one hand, the original source is THE SUN. It’s not as scrupulous as most of the media. On the other hand, there was a TIME magazine report some time back that described a near shootout between US and Iranian force inside Iran. The Iranians have become increasingly bold of late, so I could believe it. They did snatch British sailors inside Iraqi waters, for example. I’d not bet on this story, but I won’t be shocked if it’s true.

Iran should be bombed back to the 7th century, putting all Iranians on foot and in the dark. And not just the Nuclear sites, we should destroy Iran’s entire Energy industry, a “true strategic bombing”. Every pipeline, tank farm, power plant, refinery, and tanker truck and rail car should be destroyed. With 30% unemployment, 30% of those with jobs working for the Government, terrible inflation, riots/demonstrations already common, and now with everyone including the Government on foot and in the dark, large sections of Iran would be in revolt in short order. Without communications and transportation, the Government would be helpless to prevent the spread of Revolution.
Sure this would cause some pain at the pump for mankind, but it would also terrify every nation whose only asset is oil, that the USA could do the same thing to them, I think they will be very forth coming in producing more oil. It would also remind the entire world that the global trading system is an American system, secured by American power, and America can refuse to let you play. Every potential enemy will have to re-examine their relationship with the USA, to make sure they don’t risk getting bombed back into the 7th century.

Just a casual observation, but you seem rather tense. You responded to an obviously humorous/sarcastic comment with a high level of irritation. If you can't laugh, then just ignore..and have a nice day :)

We should get affirmatives soon on this one. I continue to think the regular Iranian military must be getting very unerved over how the scum bags are running the country into the ground as well as pissing the US off to the point they could be in for real hard times.
I would not be the lest surprised if deals have not been worked out for us to not target some of the regular army, airforce installations, and just go after everything that would harbor any of the revolutionary guards, and of course the nuclear and things related industrial sites etc..
Ahmadinejah and his masters are sure pushing the limits.
The damn fools are well... damn fools.

If this is true we are in a difficult situation.
The Irainians are going for the Southern oil but more importantly the Shatt Al Arab port at Umm Oasr. Basra and the British are toast.
We failed to understand the dynamic between Shia and Sunni ( they attacked the WTC — not the Shia). The Shia now see a weak and unstable Iraq and we are hugely out numbered. The Shia will rise up to support the Iranian Ayatollas . The Iranians have 1 million under arms including a 50,000 man air force and a 20,000 man nay. ( notice I said “man” ) The Shia represent 62% of the Iraq population ( approximately 18 million) Iran has 63 million. Kuwait is entitely Shia!! If this invasion is true you may run to get oil in your car tomorrow and stock up on food because gasoline will go to $10 a gallon over night.Shia hate Sunni equal with infidels. I pray in the name of Jesus this report is not true.

If Iran attacked Basra and the British, they would soon thereafter cease to exist as a regime.

they will do nothing overt.

However, they are emerging as the all-time masters of covert/insurgent warfare and terrorism. They can wreck some damage, but they cannot seriously damage a modern military like US farces in the Gulf and Iraq.

It'd be fun to watch them try though:)

"We have hard proof that the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps have crossed the border to attack us. It is very hard for us to strike back. All we can do is try to defend ourselves. We are badly on the back foot."

Stupid question .. but if they are in Iraq ... then what can't we attack them?

They can also say oops sorry after the fact
