Striking Iran in 2006?

According to this report in The Jerusalem Post (here) the U.S. is preparing to attack Iran in 2006. It may only be an aerial attack to deal with Iran's nuclear weapons ambitions. Regime change would be nice but that may be hoping for too much.

Getting rid of the theocratic dictatorship that rules Iran is one of the things that has to happen before we can achieve victory in the War on Terror. So long as the mullahs rule in Iran it will be necessary for the United States to have a large military presence in the region. Having Iraq right next door is kind of convenient. Even if Iraq stabilizes it will be in the US interest to remain in Iraq, if only in the Kurdish area.

But if we've got to exit Iraq entirely, perhaps we should redeploy to Iran.
