    Even if the Iranian Arabs were to rise up in support of the invasion (I don't believe they are that stupid, but lets specify that they do) The rest of Iran would see that its major source of revenue has now disappeared into the American Maw.

    Now look at the rest of the Iran Iraq border and ask yourself how long it would take for 150,000 really, really pissed off Iranians, who would now, if temporarily, have common cause with the Sunnis and especially Saddam's army, which is the kkeystone of the resistance, to cross that broder and start wreaking havoc on the US.

    And lets not forget that the war between Iran and Iraq was across a Shiite border, its NOT going to go smoothly.

    There are also reports that Iran already has a significant force in Iraq and that would just be prudent. That force will not be amateurs and irregulars, it will be elite troops who can do the most damage for the least cost.

    It is there because Iran knows that its regular forces can't beat even a weakened, demoralised US. But it doesn't need to.

    With Al sadr's people (who are NOT ragtag, they damned near closed down US supply lines in late 2004) as shock troops, sabotuers and suicide bombers and the Iranian revolutionary guard with nothing to lose, they wont need body bags in iraq any more, just those vaci=uum drain cleaners will do.
