I have to assume that there are those in Western intelligence services that can make things happen. Iran can have a nuclear accident. Iran can make
a mistake on the border. Iran can overreact to an insignificant incident.
When I was speaking of Iranian dumbasses, I was actually describing Iranian dumbasses.
You've got moderates over there who aren't in power. You've not raving lunatics in power. And then you've got your Muslim raving lunatics who
are fringe forces.
Anyone of the last two can make a fatal mistake. They can be compelled to make a fatal mistake. They can be maneuvered to make a fatal mistake.
This isn't all that hard.
In my book (which I sent to Israeli higher-ups) I criticized the Israelis on a few mistaken behaviors in the fight against Hizballah in Lebanon.
When they began to strike Hamas in Gaza, I noted right out of the gate, they changed up big time on one of the elements. Completely different than
ever before. And I grinned.
Today, in my copy of Aviation weekly, an article in there documented two other of my suggestions that they used to great success in Gaza. Completely
different from what they had been doing previously. And their casualties were extremely one-sided.
Now, if they'll just follow the approach with Iran as I suggested, it will be one big party. Effective. Efficient. And unexpected.
I note I sold a lot of copies in Washington DC as well.
Our Marines took one of the suggestions, implemented it into the Marine Corps, and since they've been getting significant results, the Corps is happy
with their increase in kill ratios.
The US Army modified their FM, including many of these things I touted. They didn't go far enough, but for the first time, they're at least using
some of the correct terminology and concepts.
We'll see if they can actually put them in practice.
Magic, as for my basis for comparing Iran with Iraq, get your head out of your fourth point of contact.
I know, it's going to be a whole new experience, but think just for a moment:
Iran and little Iraq fought a war. Neither could win. Iranians died by the thousands.
So militarily, Iran and Iraq were on the same level. Military level.
So when the US goes through Iraqis like crap through a goose, what does that imply?
Give me 20,000 hand selected men, and even I could go through Iran like crap through a goose.
Another typical meeting between Persians and Westerners.
(Hint: they haven't won yet.)
