Comparison of Chinese/Russian/US expeditionary corps is irrelevant. One can assume that Iran has various contingency plans to fend itself off.

In 2007 the US press reported leaked info that then Vice President Cheney wanted US troops to extend into or "invade" Iran because he believed Iran's govt. was sponsoring wide spread terrorism. The Joint Chiefs of Staff quickly quashed any ideas of going into Iran for the same reasons I pointed out. Iranians are fiercely nationalistic and Cheney was told the US would find itself in a hornet's nest situation that would be worse that Iraq. So I would say Iran has a contingency plans in place. They also face threats from the Sunni Muslim nations particularly their power rival in the region Saudia Arabia.

I think that would've started World War III in my opinion if the US invaded Iran.

I strongly believe that we, this world, the entire world is at war at this moment in time.......it is called *TERRORISM* the unseen enemy terrorizing the world in the name of a religion that they twisted to their own advantage.

It will take all world leaders to combat this war and I have no faith that will ever happen so things will proceed as they always do in history and many will suffer with no regard from the world leaders.

The current unrest in Iran may have 'dropped off the front pages', but continues, with a sizable Monarchist component. The population is strikingly 'young' with many millions of unemployed/under employed but highly educated young people who are deeply discontented with the repression of a theocratic state.
They are connected to the 'liberal' West by their phones and the Internet and are well aware of their lack of freedom in comparison to the youth in other Countries.
The economy is stagnant, MANY are hungry and 'in need' and the 'reformers' have failed to deliver the socio-economic reforms they REPEATEDLY promised.
Repression by the 'Religious Police', 'Revolutionary Guard', and Secret Police is harsh in the extreme, [the Prisons are FULL], the 'justice system' WHOLLY discredited,yet the people are losing their fear [having nothing to lose]...

The young have no memory or experience of the pre-revolutionary days of 1979,and many older people now regard them as 'Halcyon days', of plenty and of [relative] Liberty WITHOUT Religious repression.
The promises made by Crown Prince Reza, of secular democracy, free elections, a more prosperous society, open to the West, and to 'progress' are very enticing to many who see no future or change from the Mullahs.

The Restoration of the Throne of Iran is therefore [in my opinion] a distinct possibility in the next 5-10 years.

Very questionable statement I would say. Monarchy isn't supported by the majority of Iranians, though some percent definitely does. I heard many times from my Persian friends that the majority opposes the current regime and wants changes, but the changes, as the majority sees, should direct to a new, republican Iran, and not back to Imperial Iran. The Majority (let's call them "republican" to be more accurate) are well aware of the deeds of previous regime, so they don't want that all back. They call Royalists "ignorant", cause they often close eyes to the things Imperial Iran did. Of course, Imperial Iran's inner policy doesn't compare to the one of Modern Iran, cause they were a lot better, but still not good enough.

The Royalists are a lot optimistic and think that the 5000 years of history of Monarchy in Iran should not end, and that the policy of Imperial Iran was wrong (which royal family admits and every second promises to build better Iran if they get the throne) and was created not by Shah. They want their royal family back, and they believe that this time they won't repeat their mistakes. These Royalists are not the older generation. They are the young ones and they want their Shah back to the throne of a country which is pointing straight to nowhere.

So, my point is - It is unlikely, but still possible. The time will show of course.

And the emperor? He was a huge mistake. I´m a royalty fan, but in this case democracy is the only answer for the region.
Democracy brought the Muslim Brotherhood to power in Egypt. Democracy brought the Mujaheddeen and the Taliban in Afghanistan. Democracy has completely ruined post-Khadaffi Libya. So I would put question marks to your statement that democracy "is the only answer". Sadly life is not that simple.
