I agree, very risky. But the loss of Abu Musa would hurt the Mullahs standing in the eyes of Iranians and other ME Countries.
The island has been disputed territory since Iran occupied / annexed it in 1971.

Not to second guess him, but you are probably correct, or else, he simply does not care about what anyone else thinks, and his vision is the only correct one.

I wonder what a good old fashioned poll of all the 'liberated' Iraqi citizens would produce (aside from polling booths being blown up, and death threat reprisal against anyone who actually filled in the form).

Here's some poll question suggestions:

Do you like American chewing gum?.
What is your favourite explosive?.
Does your Mullah need a haircut?.
Are Iraqi women attractive?.
How many Mosque loud speakers have you shot out in your neighbourhood?.
Are hairy armpits sexy?.
How many virgins live in Heaven?.
Does a Makita or a hand drill get faster question answers?.
Can you recommend a good Indy MB mechanic?.
Who will win this years Rugby World Cup?.
Where are you going for a holiday this Summer?.
Does your generator have a guarantee?.
If your cousin turned Shia, would you give a Shiite?.
What is the surname of the one whos name cannot be said?.
Kurds are whey..Yes or No?.
Saddam meant well but got distracted by Syphilis?.
Do you feel comfort from living in an oil rich country?.
Are you saving for retirement?.

...I guess there are a few other questions that could be useful.

Let the United Nations manage the running, distribution and collection of the census results...they're sure to be impartial/unbiased/pro-choice, but of course - ask the 'liberators' to fund it.
