Thread: Major media outlets are painting an inaccurate pic of the targeted military parade in #Iran. They indicate that an elite group of IRGC members who are the custodians of the regime were attacked & killed. Of course a military parade in an enemy country has to be scary! 1/4
There is certainly a theatrical aspect to these gatherings were #Iran attempts to flaunt its military might w/ soldiers marching in determined strides & missiles in display. However, the atmosphere around it is not that different from a typical Memorial Day parade in the US. 2/4
Veterans of previous wars are remembered & honored. Women and children show up to watch the event. Some officials give a few speeches, people eat food, & a military band or two plays. Comical looks of some of the military units are often mocked by observers. 3/ #Iran
