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
