1. Iran will not be the same as Iraq
something BushCo does not seem to understand. If they attack, it will only solidify Iranian nationalism. Unlike Iraq, which was cobbled together after WWI, Iran is a real country. In fact, Iran, Turkey and Egypt are the only "real" countries in the ME with a continuous national history.

Also, don't forget the Iranian expats in the US. They will not be happy if Iran gets bombed. And most of those expats are fairly well off.

I predict uglyness.
