Pretty obviously, Mossad (and possibly CIA) had ready access to the Iranian nuke program. Because totalitarian regimes encourage ignorance and stupidity in the citizenry, to maintain power, it is very damaging to have one of the functional intellects be recognized as a traitor to the party (e.g., when one of the Shining Stars steps away, it may indicate to others that The Party is not so fantastic after all, loss of national prestige, "makes us look dumberer...", etc..)JustSomeOldGuy wrote: ↑Mon Nov 30, 2020 10:00 pmWonder who planted that suspicion. Once upon a time, I would have presumed we did.
is well within the realm of comprehension of the ignorant, unwashed masses. Unfortunately, not all of Iran's masses are so ignorant (or unwashed) and would know that neither Israel or the US is using mega-hit teams in recent years, and so the story has to be changed. It looks bad largely because the leadership underestimate their own people so badly. It isn't like the pre-internet '80s, behind the Iron Curtain, where bull could be sold as golden because it was hard to disprove.The killers - which included a pair of snipers - formed 62-person group of plotters, reports have revealed
I guess my main objection to the presented scenario is that a remote controlled truck is pretty easily out maneuvered, where as the "Ninja missile" drones are not, and the truck scenario relies on what is basically best described as full-on-tard response by the security team and the target in response to fired rounds dinging on the car. Seriously, you get out because you think gravel is scratching your paint? Equally, the remote control Corgi Killer Truck can sever the target's spine with one of three shots, but can't put a single HEAT/sabot AP round through his gourd, at the same range, through the car...?
As it stands, if people buy it, Fakhrizadeh is now a martyr for the State, a rallying point against oppression by the Zionist empire and the Great Satan.
