    Qassem Soleimani, the leader of Iran's elite Quds Force, was killed late Thursday in a U.S. airstrike that targeted a convoy near the airport in Baghdad.

    I don't know if this will work. These types of killings only seem to work against groups that are very low tech to the point of relying exclusively on guerrilla and assymetrical warfare capabilities. Groups that need a figurehead.

    Iran has jets and tanks and stuff.

    IRGC is analagous to the CIA and and also the FBI.

    It has a domestic security role, a foreign intelligence role and a global political outreach role.

    Do the CIA and FBI have their own navy and air force?

    The CIA has an Air Force. This is not secret.

    You can safely assume the reason the IRGC has a navy is because they are guaranteed certain death in times of war, and normal military people can't deal with it.

    Comparable to SAS circa 1955. Assumed to have a battlefield survivability of two weeks or less. Most people who join the military assume they may die, not that they will. Not many people are prepared to go to guaranteed death.

    Aldra you are pissing me the fuck off by telling me I am wrong when I am not and I am not going to discuss anything with you at any point now or in to the future.

    Try to be less wrong then. What you're saying doesn't make any sense. The navy, regular military or IRGC, is not nearly as significant to Iranian military doctrine or force planning as you seem to imply.

    In some sense it is, While the Quds Force is a military organization and the CIA is not both are directed to carry out unconventional warfare, intelligence activities, and extraterritorial operations.

    You have no fucking idea what you're talking about and you want to pretend to be knowledgeable for some unknown reason.

    You are not wanted you are not needed, fuck off.

    I mean sure, they have some of the same responsibilities, but the IRGC's scope is much wider. They're more or less a parallel military

    He has no idea what he is talking about. And he tells me I am wrong when I am 100% right.

    I could discuss neuroscience and you would say I make no sense.

    It's not because I make no sense it's because you have no understanding of the topic.

    Turn your Google off and we can discuss terminal ballistics. But that wouldn't make sense to you either.

    I'm not going to spend any time addressing you ever again. You are an unworthy student.

    You have NO FUCKING IDEA what you are talking about. You are extrapolating from Wikipedia.

    The fact you come back here and antagonise me shows me the nature of your character and further proves I am doing a social service by excluding you from any involvement with me.

    Run along. You are not wanted. You never will be. You are a problem via personality defect.
