I guess as an Iranian it is traditional for me to start the pissing contest with a inflammatory comment, seeing as that is how all the Iranian threads are treated by our American friends. But I'll pass on that, and congratulate our American friends on the strides that they have made during the last century, and the growth in technology, which they have generated. Hopefully these ugly weapons of war will not be used by either side, and a peaceful solution can be found to this problem, because at the end of the day it is always the civilians and the weak who are injured by wars.
Accidentally killing innocentes under the guise of war is not OK.

Fearsome pics there keenkid.
Just a thought tho, who are the guys in the tenth picture down? they dont look like regular infantry.
Its a bit tricky to see but it looks like theyre armed with FN FALs /SLRs. Plus the helmets dont looks like the same, theyre more domed shaped, whereas your guys helmets are squarer and have the characteristic "ear guards" as it were. The camo also looks strange, more like what the german Bundesweher wear, as opposed to normal american DPM.
Any info on em?

Black Hawk shot down
US forces can't even handle poorly armed iraqi insurgents, let alone better-armed & trained masses of iranian forces.
KEEP IT REAL

You have no idea how close we came during the cold war. I know a guy that was pilot on the EC-135 Looking Glass planes, and one day when he was on alert he got te order to launch. Not an exercise, a valid launch order. He said he's never been so scared in his life, because no one know if there was going to be a home to return to.
