Some of the people that I worked with in the Imperial Iranian Air Force had a fair degree of technical talent. I am not totally sure how much of the technical talent remained after the Ayatollah "cleansed" the Iranian Armed Forces of the personnel that served under the Shah. The 8 year war with Iraq didn't help much either.

I don't doubt that a bit. I suspect though that the professional officer class doesn't appreciate being led down a road to destruction by the 12th Imam types. The talent they have may not wish to apply itself to such a task.

Looks like they have enough talent to build nuclear weapons, however.

Maybe this will get Europe to wake up, but I doubt it.
