    Iran is prepared to retaliate

    This article from the Boston Globe:

    But military and intelligence analysts warn that Iran -- which a recent US intelligence report described as ''more confident and assertive" than it has been since the early days of the 1979 Islamic revolution -- could unleash reprisals across the region, and perhaps even inside the United States, if the hard-line regime came under attack. ''When the Americans or Israelis are thinking about [military force], I hope they will sit down and think about everything the ayatollahs could do to make our lives miserable and what we will do to discourage them," said John Pike, director of the think tank GlobalSecurity.org, referring to Iran's religious leaders.

    Of course, Iran is not Iraq. Our leaders should heed these warnings carefully.

    Iraq was, of course, entirely helpless - hence it was attacked. Iran is not as weak as Iraq or Afghanistan was.

    Indeed, when has one of the superpowers ever launched a full scale invasion against someobne capable of fighting back?
