      •  They don't have to.... (none)
        ...they just force the Iranians to defend their border with Afghanistan, dividing their resources, so they have fewer troops available for defending the oil fields.

        •  Look at the beautiful maps (none)
          Ok, so you're the Iranian army commander. This thing happens. When the US invades the prime oil producing regions in the country, how many troops are you going to sit on the border of Afghanistan protecting from a possible invasion of....really not a whole hell of alot. How many guys are you going to leave there?

          Look at the map. There isn't a whole lot to defend on the east side of Iran. Plus it's full of mountains. They'd leave a handfull of guys to take potsshots at the Europeans as they stumble around the mountains looking for something worth taking.

          Meanwhile everyone else would be off fighting where it counts.
