40. Not too far off base
Iran has a standing army of 500,000 and 250,000 reserves. It's going to take more than a little "immediate" bombing to halt a ground offensive by Iran, and half of Iraq will welcome them with open arms. Our relatively puny ground force in Iraq could literally be overrun. Not pretty.
