    As you point out, the air campaign's of Gulf I and the sequel, Gulf II had low US casualty rates. The problem was that neither changed things for Iraq. Saddam still ruled with an iron fist and his policies didn't change. In Gulf I, he didn't pull out of Kuwait until ground forces forced them out. In Gulf II, he never surrendered or provided convincing proof that he had rid Iraq of WMD. None of the neocons would have believed him anyway; they were bent on invasion. You're deluded if you think Likud would settle for merely killing a few hundred thousand or million Iranians without looking everywhere there might be to look in the country. Enjoy your delusion, maybe it will be your neighbor's kid doing the look-see. I sure as hell hope it won't be mine.
