"SAM I WOULD THINK IRAN WOULD NEVER RECOVER FOR MUCH LONGER THAN 30 YEARS I HOPE." - Danny Thirty years ago Iran was under the rule of the ruthless Shah. Since then it has suffered a horrible revolution, and a near decade long war with Iraq during which the majority of the world's powers aided Iraq. Danny, I suggest you consider reality when considering the future. The Bushiz did not consider reality before taking their "Cakewalk" (their term, not mine) in Iraq. Israel would be insane to pursue a "cakewalk" in Iran. If Israel is willing to consider and exist with the worse case scenarios, that is one thing. But to think that the psycho right - which was so wrong about the recent Lebanon War - is correct in it's assumptions that there can be no down side to a war with Iran is folly.
