Any statisticians out there capable of norming this data for working age population? I.E. I bet an adult beverage tha tthe percentage of miltary age males is much higher in Iran than in the Europistan countries.
You know what the really sad thing is, and what some politician SHOULD SAY IS? Is that Iran once was a great country. It’s military was formidable, it loaned money to the UK. It had educated professionals, artists and great thinkers who live abroad now, many here as MDs and scientists. It’s “tiny” now only in comparison to what it once was.
