Don't underestimate the Revolutionary Guards or Iranians in general. The fact you seem to label them as incompetent seems to ignore Persians,
throughout history, have often been rather powerful as a result of their military strength. Granted, it has been a couple of millennia since their
heyday, however. They did rather well against Iraq in the 1980's despite having no real military to speak of, holding back for many years what was at
the time the best equipped and trained force in the Arab world with nothing more than gun-toting children and half-crazed zealots.
Iran has, in strategic circles, been said to have pretty much got asymmetric warfare licked. Going in thinking their a bunch of camel jockies is going
to result in a rude awakening. For any perceived lack of training or equipment (and the Rev Guards are the best trained and equipped troops in Iran),
do not underestimate the power of indoctrination and religious fervour.
