    "But an American attack will not kill thousands upon thousands of soldiers or civilains. It will destroy the fabric of the Iranian economy, military and nuclear facilities. When it ends in les than two weeks, these stupid mullahs will own nothing." You're making the classic mistake of underestimating the Iranians, Chick. The Iran-Iraq wars were two decades ago, and the Iranian military machine is now very different to what it was then. They now have some very fancy missile systems, especially cruise missiles. Attack Iran and they'll close the Gulf to oil traffic within hours and in spite of the best efforts of the US navy and airforce, they'll keep it closed. You will be horrified at the effect on the US economy, on financial markets and on the fabric of American society. When the first shootings occur at a US gas station because someone has tried to get into a long line, I'll report this to Talkback.
