To be honest with you all, it's not the weapons that Iran has in her arsenal that worries me.
It will be how the Iranian military will respond after the first 30 days of night and day bombing from coalition forces.
How will the average Joe Iranian army guy fight.
Is this person a tried and true Islamic psycho or will this fighter be a college student, farmer or businessman forced to fight?
I would say we will see some of both.
The Islamic psycho loyal fighter will be held in reserve protecting major sites and cities and forcing the average Joe to fight with a gun to their
head, fight or die.
Sort of what SH did in Iraq with the Republican guard.
Something we all must remember that in Iran, not all of the people support the current administration, and over the past five years there have been
some major student revolts against the Iranian administration.
We don't here to much about these rally's and anti government marches because the Mullahs suppress the demonstrations with a heavy hand.
Goggle the last Iranian election for stories on the unrest when the leading candidate for pres was removed from the vote because he did not follow the
Mullahs rule of law, it was not pretty for the protestors.
Things are not all roses in Iran!
College students and younger people have tasted the western life via the internet and satellite TV, they are eager to explore and learn and do not
want to be ruled by religion, especially the women in Iran, time will tell which fighter will show up.
We all see the propoganda from Iran showing the military in all it's glory and splendor with the latest gear and weapons but that won't mean a thing
if the average Joe is forced to fight for a something they don't believe in.
In Los Angeles there is a satellite TV station that has been broadcasting from the US since the fall of the Shaw, these people who run the station are
former Iranian citizens were forced to flee Iran.
This station broadcasts daily to Iran news of the world, news they would not get from Iranian Gov run news propaganda stations, they beam pro west
programming that has the mullahs so pissed off they banned satellite dishes in Iran. The really crazy thing is that Iranian people call the US TV
station using a toll free number or the net and correspond about changing Iran to a free country not run by religion.
When the bombing starts, it will be interesting to see if the Iranian forces split and fight each other for control of the country. I guess time
