when russia inavded aghanistan. the afghans has weapons which where decent for there time. eg ERA and composite armour was not very wide spread in those day and even then the ERA was first generation. the aghans where armed with RPG's which where decent for that time. same with stinger missiles which they had becuase ECM where also not as advanced as they are today. this gave aghans a chance of fighting they could take out low flying aircraft and helicopters with stingers and use rpg's to take out APC/IFV and tanks and tanks with ERA they fired 2 rpgs in a similar area to take it out.
the flaw in your thinking about iran is you assume they will stay in there own country. if there forces such as guerillas and commandos go into surrounding countries there will be hell for america.
they have .50BMG sniper rifles, shaped charge IED's, night vision, tandem warhead rpgs, anti-tank tandem wrhead missiles with armour penatration of about 800mm behind ERA etc... they could cause havoc against america and america could end up loosing its control on afghanistan, iraq etc... also america could end up losing its bases in the middle east with ballisitc missiles attacks, man portable rocket artillery attacks, mortar 81mm and 120mm attacks and suicide car/truck bomb atatcks.
also about iraq/iran. iran had just come through a revolution in 1979 its unfair to compare there forces at that time to the modern force they have today. irans economy is doing better today then it was at the time of the revolution. the millitry is also better armed and have there own indignous programs for manufacturing weapons and are now completly self reliets in certain weapons. they also have thousands of ballistic missiles today and the capability to hot targets about 2500km away which they didnt at the time of the war with iraq. your choice of comparsons was very poor.
