Default Strategic bombing?

In the event of war between the US and Iran,whitch i think is only a matter of time could the US complete its objectives by bombing alone?or would their need to be a ground assault as well?if the americans deployed 500,000 troops,would this be enough to win a war with iran.US genarels have already said iran would be a much harder war to win then iraq.

what do you think

with the tor missile systems, iran has the means to really hurt cobras for example.

it is common knowlage in iran that the current government is not that grate, and there
are people opposing it.. how ever, thease same people also say that if Iran is attacked by military force, all iranians will defend their land.

this said.. its kinda obvious that only bombing iran wont do anything...
when the full out war it self would be Irak x 10 and mostlikely more.

The need for change is there in Iran and a % of population are in passive resistance mode.. Its a dangerous place to speak out in, and an invasion will only galvanise to the readical pole creating mess upon mess upon mess.... Its a nono as preemptive.... UNs gotta do its job right, and if a Multinational force gotta do it, Air Power will only compliment a ground force of no less then 400,000 multinational UN peace enforcement force to see a resolution on nukes implemented...... if the regime change is in the mix too, then so be it...

I say strategic bombing from high altitiudes can weaken any ground forces. A sweep of ground forces will clean up any mess. The problem with Iraq is that we are fighting terrorists. Iran has a fighting force, the US can deal with those fighters.

All this is fine, but without the intel, its a none starter.... We need to do our homework to complete a real threat assesment and work from there to remedial actions if appropriate, but that part should be post UN security council attention.... as for the threats... well you saw how empty headed our jackass resident Iranian living in Mexico is... I am sure my brother would have a few more words to add to that,but I shall leave it there.....

Youve got a point, military intellegance is a contradiction in terms... this time the intel needs to be solid and provable... big steps require big preparation, and big risk starts at the preparation stage...
