Can America successfully invade Iran and keep it for good?

Iraq was smaller but the USA had to leave.

Iran is huge and has a more unified population.

Will the USA be able to conquer or at least destroy lots of it?

    No. However, we do need regime change there.

    Russia would not stand for it. The war would escalate and involve Russia and perhaps China. Neither country wants the US to occupy nations so close to them.

    Contrary to what one answer said, I doubt other Muslim nations would come to Iran's aid. The Iran Muslim sect, Shia, are at odds with the Sunni majority. Recall the Iraq Iran war of just a few decades ago. There's no love lost there.

    No, the aid will come from our perennial enemy...Russia...because Putin fears and hates the US for its role in the downfall of the Soviet Union.

    No. An invasion of a Muslim Country would be seen as a threat to all Muslims. Never ending war.

    They could but they would have to bring back the draft and plus up the Army and other military services. Invading it would not be so much of a problem but keeping it and controlling a piece of territory that size with that large of a population who is largely resistant would require a sizable ground force on the ground there. Based loosely on what the Army war college teaches and uses in planning various operations we are talking two to three million troops on the ground there. To put that in perspective the Vietnam war only had about 680,000 troops on the ground there at the peak of that war.

      Iran is a modern nation. It's not like Afghanistan or Somalia.

    probably especially if they went there with the intent to occupy and control it for good. iran actually used to be really close to the us unfortunately it was taken over by religious extremists who wanted to enforce totalitarian sharia law on people. if you think a dirtball like iran would stand a chance against a world super power you are deluded.
