QUOTE: The debate, however, appeared to have been won decisively by the hawks following the regime's suicidal decision in late March 2007 not to promptly release 15 British sailors and marines it had captured on March 23, 2007.
"Suicidal" doesn't seem objective to me.
I wouldn't wish to give this article an anti-American spin, as I think is present to an extent in the Wikipedia version, but I think it's important to mention the circumstances before the revolution and the reasons for the embassy hostage incident. -Rafa
I think there should be a "proposed targets" Section possibly with diagrams potential causalty numbers etc.
- This is an encyclopedia article, not a war strategy page. I don't think the invasion of Iran should be written up as fact before it has happened, or before any leaders have committed their countries to it. --Rafa 14:05, 16 March 2007 (EDT)
The April 2007 attack? Is there some piece of news I'm not aware of?
'The April 2007 attack on Iran was anything but a surprise. Websites and print media throughout the world, mostly of leftist orientation, trumpeted the imminent outbreak of war, with some even specifying that it would commence before dawn Iranian time on April 6, 2007. Wikipedia had reported as early as January 20, 2007 that the attack would come in April (quoting the Arab Times, which reported it on January 18), and that this month was chosen because British Prime Minister Tony Blair would be leaving office that summer, or even as early as May.'
I cut this. It seems to be referring to the hostage crisis, but it seems to refer to events that haven't happened. Wuh? Wikinterpreter
I think that this article could do with adding the first 6,000 years or so of Iranian history; If no one else knows much about it I'll do it myself but I could probably only do a kind of summary.

Iran has nukes?

1953 Iranian coup d'état
Shouldn't there be some mention of the the western lead overthrow of the democratically elected government of Iran, and its head of government Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddegh on 19 August 1953, orchestrated by the intelligence agencies of the United Kingdom (under the name 'Operation Boot') and the United States (under the name TPAJAX Project)? Why leave this important event out? Thanks for your valuable time and consideration, ~~allornothing
