    Saddam assumed he had a green light from Washington to invade Iran simply because there was no explicit red light. He made the same mistake in regards to the invasion of Kuwait.

    I was refering to Iranian military capability.
    What capability would that be? Iran has no Air Force to speak of, no reliable missiles, only a large army, which would have to cross a very large desert/killing field just to reach Israel. Is it the threats of the Iranian general that impress you, or do you have some secret information about Iranian military capability?

    Saddam assumed nothing. You stated yourself that the US shared military information with the Iraqi government. They also sold weapons to Saddam. Both legitly and "under-the-table".

    The IAF is an impressive force. Congratulations. The entire world is impressed. Fortunately, no one cares. The IAF, in the Iranian terrain can do what against the (very large) Iranian Army? They are almost purely a defensive force.

    Israel has almost no MBTs and few enough APCs (when compared to Iran). The Iranians are not stupid enough to simply cross the Middle East and say, "hey shoot us, shoot us." But their large ground army could easily sustain a 20% loss on the cross to Israel and still crush the Israelis.

    Granted, Israel has overcome vast numerical disadvantages many times, however, these were all purely defensive and on several occaisions due to lack of military strategy by their foes.

    The preponderance of which came after the very real threats to the shipping lanes.

    And? Many nations sold weapons to Saddam. His battle tanks were Russian and the Iraqi missile that struck the USS Stark was a French Exocet.

    So are you saying that the United States in no way supported the Iraqi invaision?

    Also, your second point proved my point. The United States sold weapons to a nation that invaded unprovoked and those same weapons may now be in the hands of any number of terrorist groups.
    Also, not all their tanks are Russian.

    Lol. This is way too funny

    The IRGC is going to cross Iraq and Jordan with only a 20% loss???

    Remember the "Highway of Death" during the Gulf War?

    IAF drones alone could easily reprise that slaughter 24/7.

    Are you actually this dense? American arms are everywhere around the globe.

    Mobile AA weapons? While no solution, a temporary defintitely a deterent. Also, you think Jordan will allow either country to put military "resources" into its country? Doubt it.
    Also your Nationalism is not appreciated. I ask you remain neutral.
