The Iranian flag.
There’ve been rumors floating about that Iran might be the next country to get a firm talkin’ to by the United States military.
Because things have been going so well in Iraq so far, I thought I’d provide a bit of numeric perspective.
Iran is about the 17th most populous nation on the planet right now. (Iraq: about 45th.)
Iran is (coincidentally) also the 17th largest nation on the planet right now. (Iraq: about 57th.)
My Wikipedia skills are unstoppable, but that’s not my point. I don’t really have a point. Except to say that Iran doesn’t appear to be some piddly little nation we can subdue with a pile of bombs and some special ops dudes in wetsuits. It’s a huge chunk of well-populated land about the size and population of Texas, California, and states betwixt. And that’s what makes me (even more) nervous…
