Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think if the "surge" is perceived to work (and that is a bodybag counting exercise), there's a chance they'd be mad enough to bomb Iran. But not otherwise, and zero chance of a ground invasion under any circumstances.

You can forget any US based resistance for the time being, but I do think that the Russia, China, Far East etc nexus is another matter entirely.

I could see a sort of reverse Suez coming here.

ie in 1956 the US told the UK "we are going to pull the economic plug on you unless you stop playing silly buggers"

Same applies here, but with the boots on other feet.
