In the problem with Iran since the revolution of 1979, I always saw the USA barking like a Canish and Iran quite like a Pitbull. You got to learn how to live with your failure with Iran where you have two choices:

1-Not attack and lose
2-Attack and lose too much

USA officials mind less how many lives will be lost in such a war scenario, but here are two reasons for which this was is impossible:

American Corporate interest mainly in Kuwait, UAE, S Arabia, Qatar..etc.. Iran can make these countries a folded page in history. Cheney and the Bush family will never allow their money sink in the Persian Gulf.

The second problem they are facing is the future of Israel. What will happen if we attack Iran to Israel? does Hizbollah own Fajr and may be Shihab Missiles. How far is the Daymona Nuclear reactor is from the hands of Hizbollah? How hard is it for Iran to strike that reactor? How about Iranian alleged nuclear war heads bought from the declining USSR?

Iran is too late to deal with. Better make business and shup the .... up!
