#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".

When Reagan spoke the media portrayed him as a bloodthirsty barbarian itching for war. Soviets believed them and chose to back down. I believe a similar effect is probably taking place.

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