#4 The big question has always been, "How can Israel accomplish a win in this scenario?" It simply cannot be with the finesse the US used in Gulf War I. Israel cannot just destroy critical equipment and materiel.

It's going to have to kill a lot of Iranians, and do it ugly. Iran has to be so traumatized that they become fearful.

To be specific, Iran has to experience firsthand the horror of nuclear war--even if nuclear weapons aren't used.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
