  •  Iran could do a reverse Schwartzkof (none)
    Looking at the maps above, Baghdad looks like a tantalizingly close target.  In Gulf I, Saddam's army was expecting us to put all our efforts into kicking them out of Kuwait but instead we hook around way to the West.  In Gulf III, the Iranians would have the Mahdi Army spreading chaos behind the Iranian Front (probably aided by lots of other Shiìtes)and the American Forces scattered and tied down every which way.  Instead of devoting all their forces to thwarting our attack itself, they could instead slam across the border in force to the north, quickly be close enough to Baghdad to accurately plaster the Green Zone, then roll up our scattered forces before they could concentrate.  Yeah, Stalingrad kind of does come to mind.
