"Here is something you may have missed amidst the incessant chatter about a possible military confrontation in the Persian Gulf: Iran is far less powerful and scary than the innuendo in Washington, D.C. would have you believe.

This will likely come as a surprise to many Americans, many of whom are saturated with self-professed "experts" on cable news, the editorial pages, and the think tank circuit waxing ad-nauseam about how the Islamic Republic of Iran represents a danger to the world.

Great shots there.

They have been a joke since before the Iran-Iraq War.

Comes from the same school of thought that have us " The Japanese will never make good pilots"

Same thinking as: An Asian army could never drive the British out of Malaya and capture Singapore. Or drive the Americans out of the Philippines.

So let's look at Iranian weapons and equipment, command and control structures, logistics, and the other things we look at when developing a historical wargame.

It's all fun and games until someone nukes your eye out.

Don't ever underestimate a country building nukes.

I second Messr. Trance's suggestion, above.

Unconventional forces on their own ground are tough enemies.
