Iranian soldiers march during the annual military parade on September 22, 2011 in front of the mausoleum of the Iran's late leader Ayatollah Khomeini in Tehran, Iran. The parade marks the beginning of the 1980-1988 war between Iran and Iraq.

They're a formidable group, led by General Phyllis al-Diller.
“Men, the Iranians are now using flags for ammunition. They also seem to be impersonating THE VILLAGE PEOPLE. They’re ruthless.....simply ruthless.”
LOL! I knew I’d seen their leader before. “General al-Diller” — good one!
Actually, I think they were forced to parade. (not that the writer meant to say that)
As they say, sometimes the headlines write themselves. I remember being in Tokyo and in the subways almost all of the adverts there have English as well as Japanese. It’s quite hilarious some of the statements. Anyway there’s an expression there among expats that goes “you know you’ve been in Japan too long when you correct the English they use with a magic marker” - almost all subway adverts are corrected.
btw - those are Turkmen militia
Why do I think of Sly Stone’s band when I see this pix ?
Don’t the Bulgarians or Greeks have that same sort of headdress? I saw “Patton” and in the movie he was reviewing some troops of another country that looked similar and he remarked “but can they fight?”
