13. Iran's Army is 850,000. If we even so much as go near their border
with any kind of military strike, expect to see 5-6 mechanized divisions (rougly 500,000 troops) roll up our 130,000 soldiers in Iraq, not to mention the fact that Muqtada al Sadr has already indicated that the Mahdi Army will declare war on Americans if we attack Iran.

Furthermore, exactly what are we going to attack Iran with? Our supply lines\logistics are stretched, reinforcements are lacking. So the only options left are high-explosive aerial bombardment or nuclear weapons. We have no credible conventional ground forces threat left, as we have shot our wad in Iraq. (Think of Iraq as the Crime Family's Stalingrad.)
