"...the mullahs are willing to guarantee their own destruction..."

By Absolutely ·
This article from TomPaine.com claims that invasion of Iran would be stupid because even with nuclear weaponry, Iran is unlikely to start a war. The author's argument is based on an implicit assumption of rational self-interest attributed to every possible future ruler of Iran. I doubt the validity of that assumption where religion is involved as much as it is in the Middle East.
