The Atlantic Magazine conducted a war game that concluded an
attack/invasion of Iran was not an option.

To me it is a question of whether a floundering Bush regime decides to
double its bets and go for broke with an invasion. Just bombing wouldn't
be enough, that is pretty much a consensus, it seems.

I can't see how an attack on oil installations or a limited occupation
would be enough, either.
