    Preparations for a ground offensive against #Iran? The #USArmy has dispatched new military equipment from Jordan to Ain al-Assad base (greatest #US base, #Iraq) in al-Anbar province

    How convenient. The CBG is already there. Twice warned. And now an attack on Embassy because why not. I know of only one party that would benefit from all this.

    It's a question of when... The current build up is similar to what preceded Gulf War II.

    Trump base is anti war. That is why he got out of Syria and is negotiating with Taliban to get out of Afghanistan.

    They will harass Iran for sure.

    Creating a war hysteria around Iran makes Iran an unreliable source of oil. Thus strengthens American sanctions. That's wants all this is about. Iran will collapse economically.

    Iran tried to be like the corleone family, tried to take full control of the neighborhood by knocking out rivals one after another. First Iraqis, then the Syrians and Lebanese. The other two gangs, Israelis and the Saudis, although engaged in their own turf wars, saw a common threat and decided to call the godfather of the entire syndicate to settle this matter....

    As far as India playing mediator, remember what senior Corleone tells Michael, your friend who makes the offer to mediate peace is your enemy. Good if India stays out of this.

    P:S - apologize for the Godfather analogy, but couldn't think of anything closer to the ME situation.

    President Trump is spearheading a kind of gung-ho American nationalism quite unlike anything in recent memory. A war with Iran quite fits into his nationalist narrative and appeals to a large number of Americans. So yes Trump may want this war.

    Guys I still think invasion is too far fetched.

    American style is air strikes.

    I am ignorant on this topic. Can an "Iraq" actually be done on Iran?

    But air strikes will achieve very little. What Israel and the Saudis want is clerical regime overthrown and replaced by a docile regime, apparently Trump administration seems to concur. For this they will require a full ground invasion and from what we see on their news that is what they are preparing for.

    If they really are preparing, then I guess this will be the toughest war US will ever have fought in west asia, possibly toughest war after 1945.. unlike Iraq, they don't have the benefit of terrain; unlike Afghanistan, they don't have the benefit of free airspace, for Saudis, they don't have the benefit of under-equipped enemy (i.e., Houthis).. no idea what Israel has in mind.. I have a feeling this won't end well..

    Iran has a substantially larger population than Iraq. However their military is as obsolete as their western neighbor was before US invasion. Iran has been under western sanctions far longer than Iraq was and most of their equipment is antiquated. Iranian Air defense will not survive two full weeks of US aerial assault.

    Iran invasion is more difficult than Iraq. And who will pay for it?

    But I guess they need to achieve air superiority before they could do air strikes.. Iran seems to have a pretty strong AAAD network..

    Unlike Afghan,Syria&Iraq... Iran is a homogeneous country without much sunni population or ethnic differences.

    I guess democracy is coming to Iran soon..... :rofl:
    Don't know why Israel&US hates shia Iran!!
    Anyway, still it's a muslim country,all muslim countries must die.

    Look at this way, Americans consider war with Iran will be easy, may be only little more tougher than Afghanistan, but still a walkover. This confidence comes from being a superpower. It's difficult for regional powers like us to understand (imagine India worrying about invading Nepal or Sri Lanka - actually we won't worry)

    I agree it will be tough but nothing that a superpower cannot surmount. I doubt their air defense will outlast sustained aerial assault, despite their S-300. Iran cannot expect any support from thier sunni neighbors. Iraq in all probability will act neutral. It's likely that the attack will be from the south (on the Persian gulf coast) and this region is sparsely populated (most of the population is in the northeast) American might find themselves on advantageous terrain and force the Iranians to spread out (Iran would have found it easier defending thickly populated regions around Teheran)
