Noticeable uptick in Iran's military coverage might be a response to recent U.S. inclusion of military subjects in nuclear negotiations.

Meanwhile one terrorist managed to capture five Iranian "soldiers" with ease.

do we come to your Saudi web sites and make an ass of our selves? We got it you hate Iran. We hate the Saudi regime so just stay on your side of the PERSIAN Gulf and we'll be fine, OK?

Was it also with ease when Private First Class Kristian Menchaca and Private First Class Thomas L. Tucker of the US Army, were captured and killed in Iraq, in 2006? What about the cases of Ahmed Kousay al-Taie; Keith Matthew Maupin; Brian Freeman, Jacob Fritz, Jonathan Chism and Shawn Falter; Alex Ramon Jimenez, Joseph John Anzack and Byron Wayne Fouty; all of whom were US Army soldiers who were also captured and killed, in Iraq?

Was it with ease when Bowe Bergdahl, another soldier of the US Army was captured in Afghanistan and has been held as a prisoner of war, ever since?

Anon 7:26 PM.......Don't burst a artery now. All those soldiers you mentioned were out numbered. But still those five "borderguards" were captured by one Islamic terrorist. Tell me mr IRI apologist,why are the IRI "high command" only good for oppressing the Iranian citizenry?

"outnumbered"! So that makes it acceptable for soldiers of the US Army to be captured and killed? Another double standard as usual from the anti-Iran people.

Anon 9:07 AM.....You must be confused. The "anti-Iran people" are the Islamic terrorists occupying Iran.
