On April 17th 2012, Iran held it's Military Day parade which it showcased different vehicles and equipment. What is peculiar about this is that the UN was present during the parade. Now according to UN Peacekeeping mission site and wikipedia, there are no ongoing peace keeping missions in Iran involving the UN.

So question being, what are they doing there?

" There is a data analysis discipline used in business settings and other operational applications that classifies inconsistencies, discrepancies and departures from the operational or situational ideal. Examples of such inconsistencies are things such as undated reports, event descriptions which alter the sequence of events and reports that distort the importance of one thing relative to others in its context. One of the harder ones to spot is the omitted datum – information that ought to be there that isn’t. This classification has a corollary: the incorrectly included datum, information that shouldn’t be there, but nonetheless is."

Following is an excerpt from an IRINN TV report on Iran’s Army Day Parade, which aired on April 17, 2012.

Reporter: “We can see the parade of the army’s vehicles and equipment. “An anti-tank missile is now passing by.”

Announcer: “These are Mercedes-Benz cars… These are UN Toyotas. These Toyotas belong to the 16th UN armored battalion. They are involved in peacekeeping throughout the region…”

Reporter: “These vehicles are used for peacekeeping. They belong to the UN. They are passing by on the Army Day of the Islamic Republic of Iran.”

Announcer: “… They have great mobility in the battlefield, and great maneuvering capabilities. “We are now seeing UN Benz 2631 trucks passing by.”
