They are actually Persian, not Arab, so don't get confused. 1950-1960 Good times in Iran where the mood was western like here. After the revolution, it turned into a chaotic land.

Formerly (until 1935), Persia. a republic in SW Asia: an Islamic republic since 1979. 53,920,000; ab. 635,000 sq. mi. (1,644,650 sq. km) . Cap.: Tehran.
A country which once ruled half the world. Currently under the dictation of an Islamic government, which is ripping the nation to pieces.
Various terrains, such as mountains, jungles, deserts, grasslands, etc., can be found in Iran without much difficulty. Huge natural gas and oil reserves are probably the reason Iran is still on the Map.
There are people of many races, religions and cultures all around Iran.
All 'n all, great country to spend a vacation in, not the place you want to raise your children.
I just gave you some facts about Iran without starting a war.

Middle Eastern country bordering Iraq, Turkey, Armenia, Azerbaijan, the Caspian Sea, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and the Persian Gulf.

Ruled by the Pahlavi line until 1979, when the religious leader Ayatollah Khomeini came to power. In November 1979, Iranians overran the American embassy in Tehran and took 66 people hostage, some of whom were eventually kept for 444 days. There was a failed American attempt to come rescue the hostages, but it was over a year of negotiation with then-President Jimmy Carter and the fact that Iraq invaded Iran in 1980 (for unrelated reasons) that probably led to the hostages' release after Ronald Reagan had been elected President. Iran and Iraq stayed at war until 1988.
Iran, center of the Middle East, fundamentalist theocracy, and home to some of the richest history of human civilization as we know it.

The country which will not be invaded by the USA since, unlike Iraq, Iran has a missile range which can reach Europe, and a modern radar and communications system not to mention approximately an army, including both conventional and revolutionary personnel, of about 750,000 strong. Furthermore attacking Iran, the third largest oil producing country in the world, would dramatically increase oil prices. Notice that Iraq, despite having such a low production of oil, was able to increase the price of oil dramatically. The government also contributes to the stability of Afghanistan, Iraq, and virtually the entire eastern portion of the Near East. So any attack would compromise everything hat the USA tried to do in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Furthermore, it has been historically shown that any empire that tries to conquer the modern day Iran either losses control of it in about a hundred years, gets destroyed by Iranians, or eventually is taken over by Iranian administrators since the guys who have conquered Iran do not have a clue about running the governments. And given the current case of Iraq, the USA certainly falls under that category.

Furthermore, if the USA attacks Iran, a country with three times the land and populous of Iraq, would very dangerously stretch US forces too thin to effectively engage in an actual threat from another country.
Iran will not be next country attacked unless the entire US representative and military personnel are complete idiots. Therefore, it will most probably happen ;).
