Delusional wingers: Rummy, Wolfie think Iran will be a cakewalk, too 

God knows what our policy towards Iran should be. But wouldn't basing it in reality, instead of fantasy, be a really good first step? But n-o-o-o-o-o-o:

[T]he hawks in the Pentagon, in private discussions, have been urging a limited attack on Iran because they believe it could lead to a toppling of the religious leadership. “Within the soul of Iran there is a struggle between secular nationalists and reformers, on the one hand, and, on the other hand, the fundamentalist Islamic movement,” the consultant told me. “The minute the aura of invincibility which the mullahs enjoy is shattered, and with it the ability to hoodwink the West, the Iranian regime will collapse”—like the former Communist regimes in Romania, East Germany, and the Soviet Union. Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz share that belief, he said.
(via the most excellent Seymour Hersh in The New Yorker)

Right. And isn't Rummy and Wolfowitz talking about "shattering the aura of invincibility an utterly classic case of Winger Projection Syndrome (WPS)? Given that these clowns have done more than anyone to destroy the aura of American invincibility since Robert MacNamara and William Westmoreland?
