This article focuses on the importance of the geography condition of Iran during war. Americans in general tend to be culturally and historically ignorant and insensitive regarding anything but their own culture and history, and with the notable exception of the Marines, this is reflected by and large in servicemen and women in the field. Iran and Iraq are vastly different countries. The terrain of Iran is difficult and hazardous, and militarily so would be the people of Iran. Unlike the Iraqis, the Iranians share a cohesive culture and history that stretches back thousands of years.
