The Mother of All Battles - Again?

Iranian defense minister Mostafa Mohammad-Najjar has recently said that the United States would meet a humiliating defeat if it attacks Iran.

If America chooses the military option a humiliating defeat worse than their failure in the Tabas desert will await them.

Najjar reminds me a little bit of Saddam Hussein’s 1991 rhetoric about “the mother of all battles” and Americans who would “swim in their own blood” if the United States used force to drive Iraq from Kuwait.

If I remember correctly, in that mother of all battles, air attacks began on January 17, 1991; ground attacks began on February 24, 1991, and by the first of March, it was over.
