Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This time the Americans will fight something even more feeble than the Iraqi Army, namely Iraqi civvies with guns.

The Iranian Air Force will be destroyed within hours.

Convoys might well be hit by Iranian rockets, but that's war for you.

As long as no care is taken to spare Iraqi civilians (fire at anything that moves reasonably close to a convoy), the operation is very doable. Especially if there is some reasonable preparation, but consdiering the Bushies, we shouldn't count reasonableness.

Anyway, this is what the US armed forces are good at. No counter-insurgency, no fancy blitzkrieg maneuovering, just excellent logistics work while driving straight ahead blowing everything up.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
