I'd expect that there are US Special Forces in Iran now also, picking out targets, getting ground intelligence, etc. There is clearly going to be a
war, or, minimally, there's a great likelyhood of it, that requires ground work, and this is how it'd be done.
In the US, army special forces are Green Berets. When you say british Special Forces, does that imply a specific group, or just 'special forces' in
What type of group is your friend in? A combat group, intelligence, staff, etc? Or does he/she not want that information given up? Any information
beyond what was already mentioned, any speculation on their part as to how long they'd been there or who is there with them, if they are gathering
I would think that, given the iraq situation, with the insurgency, and Iran's greater capacity for an insurgency, that one of the major goes of any
pre-war operation would be to organize an 'anti-insurgency', along with determine what local political lines the country might fracture on. IE,
interview the zoroasterians, find out if they are unified, or if there are sects within them that are prepping for an insurgency fight against the US,
the same with the Ba'hai, and of course the muslim iranians. I'd think that Iran, despite its regime having strong police state powers, still has a
criminal underground. They'd want to find out who the big names are in that, what side they are considering joining, etc.
Are there many Sunni populations in Iran, I wonder???
