Iranian ‘War Machine’ Threatens US With Annihilation
country that fights an eight year war with Iraq to a standstill isn’t
going to last very long against the United States Army, Air Force,

September 1980 to August 1988, Iraq and Iran engaged in what’s
generally referred to as the First Persian Gulf War. As many as 500,000
were killed and many thousands more suffered debilitating injuries from
the use of mustard gas - primarily by the Iraqis and used against their
own people, the Kurds, who control the northeastern sector of Iraq.
The final prisoner exchanges didn’t actually take place until many
For eight long years the two countries battled in World War I style, trench warfare and the outcome was basically a stalemate.

embedded news crews and their very best fighting forces never left

Iraq and will defeat any American military operation that might be
conducted on their land. And in the process, they tell us that 150,000
Iranian missiles will rain down on Israel and Turkey, if there’s any
attack on their nuclear warhead production facilities. (That’s the
former nuclear energy program that Iran has created totally as a source
of electrical generating stations.)

screamed to anyone who would listen just prior to getting his clock
cleaned by those evil liberators from the US.
Wake up, Iran. Lay off the poppies and water pipes long enough to smell the coffee.

National Guard. Any country that fights an eight year war with Iraq to a
