Can't say for sure whether this is legit - Frontline lists it as being from a anonymous contact in Tehran, and it reads more like an polished up account after the fact then a normal diary, but still, it paints a fascinating look at the inside the military and secret police of Iran.

Iran knows if it fought the US in an open forces war (like Iraq tried to do....twice), it would lose in a matter of days.

That's why they avoid open war with us like the plague.

They will fund to send the stupid fanatics to murder for them, but that's about it.

Our unit has lost several soldiers in raids by PJAK. All of those killed were conscripts drafted and sent here by force rather than of their own free will.

Are these the kurds? There are many areas of Iran that are on the verge of open rebellion.
