#2 Heh, right after they launch a missile barrage. I'd be tempted to find a statue of Khomeini somewhere in downtown Tehran and TLAM it into rubble along with a nice diplomatic message "We accept your terms".

#6 Yep. Feels like 1984 again. Like the Politburo then, Iran's seeing the writing on the wall. Capitulation time.
