Invading Iran and dictating terms to an occupied Tehran would be one way to achieve regime change. However, the United States would struggle to directly overthrow the Islamic Republic regime through force of arms. 

The United States lacks regional bases necessary to build up the forces that would be required to invade Iran, destroy its armed forces, displace the revolutionary regime in Tehran, and then control the country on behalf of a new, more amenable government. Instead of an invasion the United States would probably try to induce regime collapse through a policy of military and economic strangulation, led by airstrikes, sea-launched cruise missile strikes and the vigorous employment of special operations forces.

Trump demands that Iran renegotiate the agreement which Iran's leaders have, legitimately, refused to do. Had Trump maintained the JCPOA and expressed to Iran's leaders that he would like to reconsider some of its provisions his request might have been favorably received. But as Iran's leaders have accurately pointed out, sanctions are economic terrorism and like the U.S., Iran will not negotiate with terrorists - "unmitigated disaster".

A key factor that some are not considering is destruction of Western wealth in Arab countries such as UAE and Bahrain. These countries are in short range domestically made Iranian missiles. Iran has several hundred thousands of these missiles.

UAE, Bahrain, and Saudi Arabia have abused their power by attacking Yemen and using wrong term instead of Persian Gulf. UK/USA/France because of oil and gas money have abused the region even using a wrong term for Persian Gulf.

The correct name of the water that separates Iran from its Arab neighbors is Persian Gulf. The correct term has been recognized by the United Nations on two occasions even when 22 Arab states were present.

Illegal sanctions must be lifted before any talks can begin.
