This is not even the real problem BG jan. The bigger problem is the people covering it up. That is a problem tenfold more problematic than the cucking of IRGC by Israel and it should be challenged as much as possible. Even in this thread some fanboys are throwing their whole body on the dirt and trying to cover it up by bringing excuses that the distance is too long, the casualties are not Iranian or whatever nonsense reason they bring. This is a threat bigger than the incompetence of IRGC regarding Israel itself.. incompetence can be fixed with competent powerful people at the helm.. but lies and deception are much more difficult to confront.Fair enough, I respect this position (and sentimentally I want to take this perspective as my own but I can't for now). The issue I have is two-fold, one is rhetoric and the other is humility.
I can reference the literal hundreds (not even exaggerating here) strikes on Iranian assets all over Syria and some in Iraq that lends credence to the bleak reality in which Iran is facing a military power (Israel) that is so capable and operates so freely that it's almost difficult in determining whether Iran is 'winning' against it, or losing. I guess some of my frustration is due in part to Iran's own reticence in not disclosing its material losses abroad (of which we can only speculate to the actual extent of the damage). But the evidence from so many...and I mean so many satellite pictures shows that Israel is destroying Iranian/Iranian related assets left, right and center:
Moreover, we're dealing with an increasingly aggressive Israeli state that has pushed Iran farther and farther than ever before in the past and has come to realize (based on Iran's inaction) that they can get away with a lot. Also, due directly to Trump's Zionist-orientated regime, Israel enjoys a new level of influence in America that they've never really had before. We already know that Americans are more than willing to get down on their worthless knees and suck from the Jewish-tit of Israel for cash and hollow dreams of "god, Jesus, the holy land and democracy" but these past ~5 years have rung in a completely new degree of groveling. So exactly how is Iran going to deal with Israel when it (Iran) chooses to do to nothing in favor of 'waiting' or "you better not attack us, or we will raise Haifa and Tel-Aviv". It's just too much, I can no longer simply accept that Iran is biding its time...waiting for the opportune moment to strike back. There is literally no guarantee Iran's future "strike back" will help its current loss of deterrence. In-fact, (god help me...) Iran needs to do something SOONER rather than later. Waiting will only make the issue worse....
look.....heart on my sleeve....this all comes off as a showboating, half-cocked lie that isn't backed up by anything that can help substantiate the claims Iran constantly espouses (about its strength, not technical ability).......This is where I will inevitably get blocked or ignored by some Iranian users it is something that needs to be actively talked about. Those missiles look really good for PR videos, IRGC never has a shortage of those....yet outside of a few instances of them being used in recent memory (ISIS, KURD militants, AYN-AL ASSAD). Iran doesn't seem to want to use them when it really matters like after the death of Fakhrizadeh... Clearly we are not being told the whole story about Iran's power and it shows man...it shows.
Anyways....on a side note; https://www.israelhayom.com/2021/01/14/idf-crafting-new-options-to-counter-iranian-threat/
Iran really needs to prepare for the worst, Biden is not to be trusted at all. The guy is a pretty staunch Zionist-lackey and he is inheriting quite the economic leverage over Iran.
All that i say comes from a place of true concern for Iran, Iranians and the future of our people in the region and world. I no longer know what to think anymore when It comes to Iran, they've put me down (and so many others) time and time again with little to show for it.....If I'm wrong, if I'm right, whatever.
We have some REAL PROBLEMS here that need to be discussed.....
Much respect to you and everyone on the forum, please forgive me overly cynical take on the issue, I'm frustrated and tired...
Anyway, never has there been a army in entire human history that just stood still and let the enemy come and slap them on their head. There has been even no retaliation attempt by the so called resistance against Israel during the past 10 years. What IRGC is showing to all of us is just extremely strange, something we can not fathom. Shouting death to Israel but allowing them to come and slap you left and right without any response whatsoever. Mind boggling.
