Tehran launched an arms development program during the 1980-88 Iraqi imposed war on Iran, to compensate for a US weapons embargo. Since 1992, Iran has produced its own tanks, armored personnel carriers, missiles and fighter planes. Yet, Iranian officials have always stressed that the country's military and arms programs serve defensive purposes and should not be perceived as a threat to any other country. Iran displayed the first squadron of Saeqeh (Thunderbolt) fighter jets produced by its defense industries in an air show staged during military parades on September 22.
The large air show was aimed at displaying the defensive power of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Also, the Iranian defense ministry showed its latest products, including high-tech Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) and missiles defense systems as well as different types of Shahab - including Shahab1, 2 and 3 - and Sejjil missiles in the military parades late in summer.

That video flashed the same photo of a trainer aircraft atleast 10 times. Plus some drawings of boats....
IRan has no Air Force or Navy. All they have is a bunch of missiles.
They aren't smart enough to turn their crude oil into gasoline.
Atleast the North Koreans can make planes out of wood, which does offer some stealth capability because of the material.
The only reason we are going after IRan is because they are a fuel source for China.

"We would probably win a War with Iran"
Sorry, even without nukes the U.S. wouldn't stand a chance in an unknown environment versus people that don't fear death. You just can't compare Iraq with Iran.
Seriously, technology is not everything.
