The war served its purpose for eight years—it cost Iran more than one million dead or maimed, and approximately $300 billion of damage to its economy.

Lotta extra men when each man can have four wives...

History has shown that there are many countries against the idea of a powerful Islamic Republic

Unfortunately is has also shown few possess the stomach to stop them, and we can probably now count the U.S.A. in that list.

Look to history. When is the last time a Persian army was victorious?

Against Saddam doesn't count, that was a draw. Iran fought Iraq for 8 years and made almost no progress. The US took out Iraq in 3 weeks.

Next Saudi either fields it’s own nukes or some deal is cobbled together to bring the Gulf States under someone else’s nuclear “umbrella”. Can you say Cold War II?
