    They would have to use Kuwait, and take some Iranian cities on the Coast across from the UAE and Arabia.





    Pakistan could take Zahedan and Bandar Abbas. The Saud would have to take Bushehr, Ahvaz, and Shiraz. They could cut Iran in half. Iran would have a very difficult time getting supplies from the sea. Then they could bomb away with Tehran and any northern cities Iran has. Reducing them into rubble.


    Of course, we could close off escape thru Iraq and Afghanistan. Leaving them only Turkistan to run too.


    To solve the problem and future problems Iran needs to be reduced to a population under 10k. Then problem solved.

    Iran is a huge, difficult country.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    Yes. Difficult.

    I had the pleasure of involvement in a war plan concerning Iran. Forced entry. Us against them and the Russians.

    I was an intelligence officer. My job was to evaluate terrain and weather impacts on friendly and enemy courses of action.

    The War College now uses Iran as the opposition in its classes, at least the field grade classes (I never went higher). I think that changed around 2005ish.

    If Iran already had nukes I wonder if we would be bullying?

    The Iran issue makes good distraction for Trump's DC mess anyway. Have not heard much about impeachment.

    I'm sure Iran took notice on how easily the conventional power of the US military dismantled Iraq's forces.
