Let's pretend, for the sake of argument, that we accept that the Bush Administration has decided that military action in Iran is necessary to achieve aims of the power groups in the ascendant in the US.
How bad could the situation get? In Iraq it seemed that the worst case was a descent into civil war and break-up into several states with maybe some side conflicts. In Iran, I'm afraid the worst case could be much worse.
- Who would be involved in military action? What action could be taken? Where would it be based from?
- What would the responses be?
- What would the wider geo-political consequences be? How far would they spread?
