#1 ...Not impossible, but damned unlikely. The Saudi Army is approximately eighteen brigades in size, so losing three - or even having them chewed up enough to go combat ineffective - would be a pretty serious hit. I'm thinking that were it true, the 82nd Airborne would be ramping up for a deployment, and the Marines would be inbound as well; a hole in the forces like that would simply be too much for the Iranians to resist.

#10 The video is more a parade than surrendered Army. Dutifully marching along, no walking wounded, no camo.

#11 They needed footage of defeated, demoralized men of military age so they just called out everyone from a nearby town.
