with all the effort being undertaken to destroy Libya's air defences it exposes the lie of the oft-repeated comments asserting the inadequacy of Iranian air defence. Unless of course Libyas was far more advanced. It also shows that Israeli jets, f16s, 15s, would not survive a strike on Iran.

Caltrops might be useful against those motorbikes.

Yep..Gifted one..An American fighter jet went down today..The pentagon said it's caused by "mechanical problem"..Of course it was a "mechanical problem"!! How else are they gonna explain to their people that their fighter jet was actually shot down, thereby risking demoralizing their pilots.

No one know the exact number of missiles or how Iran's air defence network is..F16 and such will not survive a strike on Iran especially deep inside Iranian territory.

Ps: I like the police gear,tho.Cool!

The Americans also lost a stealth bomber in Serbia; but won anyway. I would not have any illusions about air power of USA. It would be a mistake to do so. Iran may have excellent air defense against "normal" military including Israel.

However USA air power is vastly superior with a budget 100 times that of Iran. I hope it does not come to a fight. If it does it is not good.

The Iranian Mountain Police resembles very much the Swiss Montain Police.
They both have the same problem: High mountains covered with eternal snow and ice, harsh weather conditions, large areas with nearly no infrastructure like roads, settlements and so on.
