TThe Iraq attack is not going to be repeated again. Bush learned the hard way that maintaining an occupation is much harder than a quick conquest, and there are no troops to do such a job. The more likely scenario is a US air strike against various Iranian nuclear sites. Of course, Iran will retaliate one way or another. The US is placing Patriot missiles in Gulf State as protection against such retaliation against US allies. Perhaps Israel will also get targeted. The placing of another aircraft carrier nearby is meant to protect the straits of Hormuz against blocking by Iran, thus preventing Gulf oil from being exported. The more effective retaliation by Iran will be: 1. Creating a Shiite fundamentalist insurgency in Iraq in an attempt to bleed the US and drive it out. This is sure to work well. 2. Israel being attacked again by Hizballah rockets, as they promised they would do. 3. Cutting down on oil exports from Iran. Would get oil prices to rise again. It is too bad Bush got himself stuck in Iraq; Iraq was not a danger to the US, and Saddam was keeping Iran in its place. An attack on Iran would have been a simple matter, relatively speaking. Now it will cost the US dearly. Well, fools have to pay for their stupidity.
