The Longest War-Never Again


The Longest War-Never Again
by Fair

The Longest War

It was 30 years ago today, a beautiful first day of autumn in Tehran.  The leaves were turning brown, the hot summer was becoming mercifully tempered by the now cooler air from the Alborz Mountains. The universities had been closed by Khomeini's government 5 months earlier for ideological reasons.  However, school age children all over Iran were busily rushing to and excited to attend their first day at school for the academic year. There was young energy and happiness everywhere.

And then it happened.

At 12:30 Tehran time, a force of almost 200 Iraqi jet fighters viciously attacked 11 cities in Iran, the majority entering Iranian airspace undetected.  Their targets were 8 Iranian airbases, 5 airports, 4 major army installations, early warning sites, and some refineries.  Simultaneously, 6 Iraqi armored divisions roared over the Iran Iraq border into the provinces of Khuzestan in the south, as well the central and northern sections of the border. Their objective was to capture Khuzestan and annex it to Iraq as "Arabistan", with its capital "Al-Ahwaz". The war was supposed to take only several days.  Instead it took 8 years, becoming the longest war ever fought in the 20th century.  It was also the only war in the 20th century in which all superpowers supported both sides and ensured that no side won.

The revolution had happened less than 2 years earlier, and the Ayatollahs had taken 52 American diplomats hostage less than a year earlier, thus isolating Iran tremendously and ruining its international image.  They also had systematically dismantled Iran's armed forces, which Iraq had feared strongly for years before.  Many of Iran's best officers, some of the most highly trained pilots, soldiers, sailors, and marines in the world had been purged from their duties-either expelled, imprisoned, or executed, imprisoned. While some were completely devoted to the former Shah, many would have gladly served their country but could not pass a religious/ideological screening.  Only several months before, the Nojeh coup attempt had occurred, and hundreds of Iran's best pilots were in prison or decommissioned, and some of their most senior comrades executed without trial.

As a result of these actions, Iran had less than 1 armored division in Khuzestan, with virtually no command.  Its air force was at a small fraction of its former strength, and Saddam Hussein and his allies were convinced that this war would take only several days, and would be short.  

But they had forgotten one thing-the resolve of the Iranian people.  Those advising Saddam ignorantly thought that Iranians were divided, and that those who could fight would not because they were at odds with their government.  They failed to realize that Iranians loved their country more than they hated their government.  Then president BaniSadr moved quickly to plead with the clergy to release hundreds of imprisoned pilots and other officers.  These pilots joined their comrades in the fight against the Iraqi invaders. They surprised the world when they showed the failure of Iraq's air assault, and launched devastating attacks into all parts of Iraq, destroyed the Iraqi Navy and cut them off from the Persian Gulf. It would take almost two years before the Iraq invaders would be expelled from Iran at the great turning point of this war- the liberation of Khorramshahr on May 24, 1982.  The Iraqi invasion and Saddam's sick dream of "Qadessiyeh" had failed miserably.  This was the greatest victory for the Iranian people in our modern history, and all Iranians fought side by side to show the world they are wrong and we are Iranians.  We will not submit to shame and we will not accept humiliation.

Today is 30 years later.  We must take lessons from those days very carefully.  We won and made Iran a graveyard for the invaders.  But we did so at a cost.  8 years later, after 1 million dead, thousands of innocent chemical victims, millions of displaced Iranian civilians, and almost $1 trillion in damage, the war came to an inconclusive end.  The world had armed Saddam, one of the most incompetent military men in middle east history, with whatever it took to prevent Iran from winning.  Saddam Hussein emerged from this war with one of the largest militaries in the world after 8 years, only to be crushed in 100 hours by the US led coalition in 1991.

In 1980, logic and reason said that Iran should have suffered defeat quickly, and Iranian people's resolve overcame that massive obstacle.  It was not easy, and it was long and painful, and we and our children and grandchildren continue to pay for it.

I don't ever want to see any war every happen again on Iranian territory.  This was our "Never again" experience.  Never again should an Iranian child be running from a barbarian's missile fired at her home.  Never again should an Iranian child lose her father, mother, family, or home to aggressors.  Never again should any of our compatriots be put in a position where they hold a rifle and an RPG, and the other side has thousands of tanks, planes, and chemical weapons that they can use at will. We are Iranians. We want peace, and we, more than anybody else, know the value of peace.  We as a country should be on a path towards peace and strength, not confrontation and weakness.  We should have a strong positive international image, with a strong economy and industry, and a pluralistic modern system in which Iranians of all persuasions are included.  I will let the readers decide whether we have this or are even on our way to such a situation today.  But at least we can agree that that should be our goal.

The only victors in this war were the incumbent superpowers, their arms industries, and all those who benefitted from cheap oil.  The greatest losers of course, were the people of Iraq and Iran.

On this memorable day, I ask all Iranians and Iraqis to take a moment to reflect on this vicious conflict and its victims, and on all those wonderful people who are no longer with us.  I cherish their memories everyday, and ask "why"?  There is no good answer.  The only decent attempt at answering this question is to learn from our mistakes and make peace, coexistence, and tolerance a priority so more wonderful people don't have to leave us in the future.  Perhaps then, and only then, can we say our loved ones' lives were not lost in vain.

In the hope of that day.

As I told you before, using the same methods of sophistry, Iran today is a vibrant democracy with an even more vibrant economy. And it has a powerful military too that could match the US.

These garbages are fed to the people in Iran on a daily basis. The same garbage is fed to the people regarding the war as well with all the heroes being exclusively rishoo pashmoo types like the ones you like.

You are among the same group that says Iran is a democracy because it runs elections. Now you use the same sophistry to make a point regarding the military information available on the 8 years war inside Iran.

You see, you need lies to sustain your failed ideology. Since Iranians have gotten way smarter than they were 30 years ago, now you guys revert to sophistry and "smart' lies.

But in this site, as you may have noticed, not even clever lies work. Otherwise, someone like you would not become the butt of all jokes in here.

Now I suggest you go preach your garbage in your local mosque. It might actually work among the type of people you'll find in there. For once in your life you may actually be taken seriously. And that would be the best cure for your frustrations in this site.

by Sargord Pirouz on

There are objective historical materials available. And there are compositions available from veterans. And there are blogs run by veteran communities. And there are Iranian historians,, veterans and historical enthusiasts participating in discussion forums, both in English and Farsi.

Apparently, none of this is good enough for you. Suit yourself, many of us find the materials and access most enlightening.

Many revelations have come to light in the past 5-10 years. And a fair amount of this has been uploaded on the web, in either Farsi or English, bypassing the official bureacracy. And, it may interest you to know that that official bureacracy has allowed translated Western historical works on the subject into Farsi, which contradict the official narrative in certain ways.

I have access to Iranian-based sources, one of which has yet to be stumped on my many querries.  

So Ratsam, what I'm saying is this field of interest is not a black and white subject, coming from Iranian-based sources. What about you? Have you engaged in any historical research? If so, tell us about it.



Mark Pirouz

by Rostam on

But, there is plenty of Iranian published post-1980 military history that's objective and worthy of review. Amazingly enough, even Western histories of the war have been translated into Farsi and published in Iran.  

Yes, and I want to remind you that Iran has a vibrant democracy and economy too and oh, it does not have any homosexuals either.

There are plenty of work on war published in Iran, but after very careful screening by the Information Ministry. It's all about "razmandegaan eslaam" and risho pashm, and very little about "vatan parastane Iran". And in Iran, when one of these "vatanparastan" decides to write or talk about the war, they are immediately confronted by the Information Ministry, silenced and discredited using pretty much the same methods you were using in this blog.

Except they are more effective than you since they can also use chomaagh, something that you cannot do in here. Frustrating for you, isn't it? Don't be shy now, you wished you had the same kind of tools available in here too, right?

P.S. I don't expect you to understand my comment since I threw in quite a lot of Farsi words and since you are not an Iranian anyway.

by Sargord Pirouz on

Rostam, you're right in some ways. Certain official depictions do show some of these tendencies.

But, there is plenty of Iranian published post-1980 military history that's objective and worthy of review.

Amazingly enough, even Western histories of the war have been translated into Farsi and published in Iran.  

Plus, there are a number of Iranian military historians and veterans communities that are credible, approachable and helpful in the study of the Iran-Iraq War. 

Rostam, things are no longer the way they were 5-10-20 years ago. I mean, so much has come to light in just the past 5 years. Access today is unprecedented for these studies. Believe it.


To folks like Sargord, ALL

by Rostam on

To folks like Sargord, ALL veterans of Iran-Iraq war were risho pashmoo pasdaars and basijis who were fighting for Islam. The regime in Iran has taken every step imaginable to stop non-pasdaar/basiji veterans to write books or post blogs about the war.

In a way, they have "erased" the services of the veterans of regular army (read Shah's army) from people's mind and history books. Unless of course, it's one of those few who had turned pro-regime and fancy an Islamic beard.

In the process, they have also erased the nationalistic sentiments of the previous regime's army officers. God forbid, if someone in Iran reads a book written by a veteran who says he fought for Iran while at the same time detesting the regime.

After all, it was "Lashgare Eslaam" who fought for Islam's glory and in the name of Hossein and emaame ghaayeb. Go read the published books. It is all about Islam, not about Iran. And that is how the regime likes it. All other regular army veterans (read shahs's army) must be silenced, unless of course they managed to survive the war and exit the country.

As long as it is for Islam, then young minds can be exploited on religious terms because as Khomeini himself once said, "Islam demands blood."

Then we have the likes of these Sargord folks. They demand rish va pashm and a pasdaar uniform in the avatar photo for the veteran to be "genuine". It must be Islamic, it must be pro regime, it must conform to the regime's standard description of a veteran, otherwise, it must be fake. How in the world a member of lashgare eslaam could possibly be clean cut and be against the regime? How? This is a no no for the regime and they like to keep it that way.

They have done it that way inside Iran. In Iran it is as though ALL veterans were risho pashmi basiji type. This is the power of propaganda held unchecked for more than 20 years.

But the fact remains Sargord that during the war, Iran was not saved solely by the risho pashmoo types that you hold genuine. It was ultimately saved with help from those clean cut well trained folks of the regular army that the regime has successfully "erased" from memories and whom you hold as fake.

You dissagree, don't you troll?

You were a little boy who was playing with his toys while real men were putting their very lives on the line to save Iran. Now that you have grown up and while your mouth still smells like your mama's milk, you come in this and other sites and arrogantly accuse people of being anti-Iraninan or war-monger, or reject exile or irrelevant or fake or other names. You do so left and right. But you fail to realize that you have no credibility in this site and you have become the butt of all jokes.

Yes, if it makes you feel better, all of us who oppose the regime are irrelevant warmongering anti-Iranians who happen to be fake as well, specially if the said person happen to be a veteran.

As I said to you before Mark Pirouz, go fxxx yourself asshole. Read the last sentence over and over again until it sinks in in your little head.


AO Jan and other Iranians- Thank You

by Fair on

AO Jan,  before you thank me, I am very deeply sorry that you and so many others became refugees of this terrible war, and suffered so much.  I rememeber seeing the long lines of cars trying to get gas to leave the cities near the fighting, and the terrible situation.  I could only imagine what went through the soon to be refugees' minds- just to get out of there and head towards a completely uncertain life in a new city where hopefully they could get resettled but often could not.  As usual,  those leading our country were so wreckless and could do so much to prevent this war but didn't.  They were sitting in their posh Tehran homes and palaces, while telling the people of Iran to go fight empty handed and that God would make them victorious.  They put their ideology first, and had no country. 

Thank you AO Jan and all other Iranians in this blog for your appreciation and support- I am proud to have you as compatriots and to serve my country has been an honor, and I never forget the human cost and the pain during that time.  Bavafa Jan and others, thank you all for your service to our country, our nation will never forget your sacrifice. 

Let us never forget.  Never again.  Payandeh Iran va Irani.  Long live Peace.

Just wanted to thank you for your service to our nation.  And I am terribly sorry that you have been slandered on this site by a non -Iranian who doesn't know the first thing about our country and our nation, and who spent those terrible years of war and destruction (when me and my family were homeless war refugees) sipping wine and riding his motorcycle in the U.S.


I just want to comment on a

by MM on

I just want to comment on a story I remember from the chemical attacks on Iran.

As I mentioned, according to BBC, there were ca. 3500 chemical attacks on Iranian targets, 30 of them on civilians.  By some estimates, 100,000 Iranians suffered the effects of the chemical agents exposed to after the war ended.

Anyways, nearly 15 years after the end of the war, a close relative contacted me about a friend whose lungs were affected by the chemicals and wanted me to see if there was anything that could be provided, or brought here for more treatment.  After looking into the matter, I was told that Iranian doctors have the "best" hands-on experience in the treatment of the victims of chemical  attacks, and that he is in good hands where he is already.

This is one area I was not proud to say Iranians are number one!

Bavafa Jan: Thank you. I appreciate any and all details about this heinous war; especially how  the soldiers felt emotionally and what they were thinking at the time, or what their mood was like, the morale and so on. Thanks again for talking about it. It must not have been easy for you.

I salute you and honor your sacrifice in defending the country you love.

Maziar Jan: I salute your beloved brother and honor his memory with all my heart. May they never be forgotten.


Dear Bavafa

by Fair on

Indeed that is how I remember it as well, many of us felt this is not a good idea, and none other than the commander of the Iranian Army Joint Chiefs himself, General Zahirnejad (rest in peace) said so publicly at the time because he realized the massive risk.  But Khomeini and his ideologues insisted on continuing a war into Iraq without any chance at air superiority or substantial resupply, whereas Iraq had full access to all the weapons it needed.  This was a move doomed to fail and easily predictable by any military mind, but the justification was that Imam Zaman and God would overcome whatever shortcomings we had in material needs.  I guess Imam Zaman and God never showed up..

The rest is history, and those who were lost will not come back now.  Let us remember and honor them, and do whatever we can to work for peace.


A couple of quick note, for what ever is worth

by Bavafa on

First, how sad to see such great blog that encompasses such great subject to be hijacked by an individual, Sarhang. Most of us if not all know him and what he represent but sadly we allow ourselves to be played by him (only my opinion here).

Second, just to add a bit to what MM has written about the unnecessary prolonged war and so many additional lives were lost as a result. Well, the last few months of my service was the time that Iran had librated most of the Western part of Iran if not all of Western part. This is not too long after Khoramshahr was librated. At some point I was stationed 16 Kilometers into Iraq land. Prior to that, every body regardless of Military, Sepah or Basij was so motivate to fight. There was no shortage of volunteers for a given mission that you knew may not come back, and there was not much in fighting between Sepah and Army, at least we were treated OK by them. But once Iran had been librated, no one really wanted to fight any more. I remember every body was asking what the heck are we doing here? Any given task was like pulling teeth, no one wanted to do it and there was not that unity or cooperation between Sepah and us (army)

In many way, I am happy my service had come to an end by around that time and got to live that place. I hated the fact that now I was part of an occupying force. Although, need to add that at the time Iraq was still occupying some portion of Iran on the Western borders. My younger brother later on served there. But we all felt that now our forces should concentrate on librating that part as well instead of becoming the occupier ourselves.

Anyway, this got much longer then I had planned for so thank again to all those who fought to liberate Iran.

by vildemose on

MM jan: thank for that article. Daghe delamo tazeh kardi..


All, u r welcome. Another eye opener: what if war ended in 1982?

by MM on

 quote from the article by Mansour Farhang, the former Iranian rep in the UN:

وقتی که در تابستان ۱۹۸۲ نیروهای ایران موفق شدند که قوای عراق را از خاک ایران برانند و وارد حریم مرزی عراق شوند، آیت الله خمینی پیشنهادات متعددی را برای پایان جنگ و دریافت غرامت که کشورهای عرب خلیج فارس حاضر به پرداخت آن بودند، رد کرد.

در شش سال آخر جنگ این تنها آیت الله خمینی بود که قادر به خاتمه جنگ بود ولی بعد از تابستان ۱۹۸۲ که نیروهای ایرانی بخشی از عراق را تسخیر کرده بودند، آیت الله خمینی در این رویا بود که از راه کربلا به بیت المقدس برود و "فلسطین را از سلطه استکبار رها" سازد.

سرانجام وقتی که جنگ به شهرهای ایران کشیده شد و بقای ولایت فقیه را به مخاطره انداخت، آیت الله خمینی اعلام کرد برای "حفظ نظام" حاضر به نوشیدن جام زهر و پذیرفتن قطعنامه ۵۹۸ شورای امنیت و آتش بس شده است.

In my opinion, thousands of lives there be still be with us, and less importantly, Iran would have been paid for the damages.

fair, that was a touching story.  i identify with your loyalty to one's country and desire to defend it.  although, that point might be missed by a non-iranian.  you also touched on a universal phenomenon and ideal, the misery of war and to strive to not let another war happen.  very nice picture too.  it shows iranians of all backgrounds who'll get in that trench to defend the country.

after reading your blog and watching the video mm provided, i felt a bit numb with the magnitude of effects on families of dead and injured soldiers and civilians.

by Agha_Irani on

A very touching blog highlighting the Iranians sacrifices and the huge waste of Iranian lives during those 8 years.

I can't help but comment on SP's stupid comments and lies. I think a more appropriate 'moniker' than Sargord would be the 'Bavarian Corporal' cos it appears that he has the same delusions of grandeur for himself and his islamist paymasters as that criminal devil did.

Corporal: if you don't like the blog go and read presstv about Hamas and Lebanon's hizbollah or whatever other rubbish your paymasters produce.

No person like you who is more concerned about Palestinians and Lebanese should be calling Iranians 'anti-Iran' and 'Fraud'.

YOU are the fraud here corporal along with the rest of your fanatic islamist buddies trying every underhand tactic to save this foul regime from going through its dying motions.  


Mardom Mazloom


by Mardom Mazloom on

The only Fraud on this site is you, among all the other non-Iranian IRI-supporters.


You failed to answer simple questions?




Because you're unable to read/write in the language that 'True Iranians' suffering from the satanic regime - that you defend  just for psycological illness - can do.

As you didn't deny that crimes against Iranians happen(ed), you then admit that this satatnic regime raped/killed/hanged humans which in your sense is also bad.

The question is then: why are you trying to justify these criminal acts? I'll put it on your psycological illness as nobody can justify these undefendable acts.


If I'm wrong; answer to my questions and we'll see. Till then just put a lid on it, we are done with your mumbo-jumbo.


I know it means nothing to you, but here we are commemorating our losses.

Mardom Mazloom

Sargord, answer to these simple questions if you dare?

by Mardom Mazloom on

1- Do you read/write Farsi?

2- What gives you the right to pretend being in the IRGC forces (avatar, name) if you've never  done your military service neither in the US nor in Iran?

3- Do you think that IRI hasn't tortured/raped/killed iranians - don't say in the past 30 years - just in the last year?

4- You've passed the majority of your life in the US, why do you think that defending barbarians against all is your duty?




Major: You will never be Iranian!

by vildemose on

Fair: Stop calling a war veteran a liar. I completely understand given the history of MOIS and how they have assassinated more than 100 people abroad why Fair is reluctant to divulge information that might cause him or his family harm.

The question is why are you pretending that such concerns are invalid and should not be be considered by anyone in their right mind?

You are not Iranian ( I don't care even if you carry a national ID card) and that explains why you genuinley might not understand or even begin to comprehend what being 'Iranian' means and why we hate such anti-Iranian entities such as the mullahs.

 The only part of Iran you can identify with is perverted version of Islam and that's not enough to make you Iranian.

p.s. Even Q and IRI in their own misguided way care about the welfare of  Iran than you do because they are 'Iranian'. I am so sorry that you don't belong to either side. You are just the victim of your circumstance. That's all. Hope you will overcome your dilemma be digging deeper. Supporting IRI does not make you 'Iranian'. Your great grandfather does not make you more Iranian... no matter how much you try. You are in a limbo and for that I'm sorry.

You simply can not come to grips that there are individuals of dual citizenship that accept the Islamic Republic of Iran for what it is, socially as well as politically. Understood, Vilde.

"A legend in your mind", Sargord, aren't you??

by vildemose on

It's a moniker that's been applied to me a number of times in my life; the first time in 1982 and the last in 2000 (excluding it's use on IC).

Who are those faceless, nameless people who have bestowed (applied) this moniker to you in 1982 and 2000? How did they come up with such a appelation for you? Don't you have a mind of your own? Why aren't you afraid of being associated with  IRI military in any way shape or form given the fact the US government and DHS both have designated IRI as a terrrorist entity? Why are you not afraid of DHS?

 Why are you in contact with Iranian/IRI military??
- I'm not in direct contact with the Iranian military. I am in contact with Iranian military veterans and military historians. I'm also in contact with defense observers who are in contact with the Iranian military.

You are not in Direct contact with Iranian/IRI military, which implies you are in contact with them but indirectly. Please provide name and rank of these military veterans, including the military historians? Do they live here in the US or Iran? The military historian you have mentioned, are they Iranian or Americans? Do they work for IRI? and in what grounds, they are considered to be "military historians"?

Are they (war veterans and military historians) loyal to IRI regime and Khameni?

Why were you allowed  to come back and live in the US being a terrorist state military Officer?
- I am Iranian by paternal lineage. I have travelled to and studied in Iran. It should be noted that on my non-Iranian side, my maternal lineage has lived on the American continent since the last ice age.

Were you born in Iran? How long did you stay in Iran? What did you study in Iran? What degree did you get while studying in Iran?

When was the last time you were back in Iran and for what purpose?

Does your mother know of you are a sympathizer/supporter of IRI, officially designated by the United State government as most active state sponsor of terrorism?

Are you loyal to IRI or the US?
- I am a citizen in good standing of both the US and Iran. (The last time I took a loyalty oath was to the US in 1978.)

You might be a citizen in good standing in Iran's IRI but not in good standing in the US. How can you reconcile your support of Khomeinist IRI, which is hell bent on seeing a "A world without America" with being a citizen in good standing in the US? Do you consider not blowing yourself up yet, being in "good standing"??

Last but not least: If a war breaks out between the US and Iran, and you are needed to fight for the US side, whose side would you serve?


Dime a Dozen

by Fair on

Like I said, Mark, trash like you are a dime a dozen.  It is easy for you to be "up front" because a stateless terrorist has not declared war on you.

You have demeaned yourself ad infinitum here, and need no help from anyone else.  Just look at what you have done for Iran-NOTHING but turn your back on her people while playing with your motorcycles in the US, and it is clear what an empty pathetic shell you are- all talk, cheap talk. A dime a dozen.

Thank you for your heart-felt blog.....I was touched by the line:

They failed to realize that Iranians loved their country more than they hated their government.

Hi! Vildemose,

    You asked great questions......I look forward to Sargord's answers.

Sargord Pirouz

upfront answers for Vilde

by Sargord Pirouz on

Vilde, see how easy this can be...

1) How did you become a Sargord?
- It's a moniker that's been applied to me a number of times in my life; the first time in 1982 and the last in 2000 (excluding it's use on IC).

2) Why are you in contact with Iranian/IRI military??
- I'm not in direct contact with the Iranian military. I am in contact with Iranian military veterans and military historians. I'm also in contact with defense observers who are in contact with the Iranian military.

3) When were you in the IRI/IRGC military? What year? How long did you serve?
- I am not a member of the Iranian military, nor a veteran of Jange Tahmili.

4) Why were you allowed  to come back and live in the US being a terrorist state military Officer?
- I am Iranian by paternal lineage. I have travelled to and studied in Iran. It should be noted that on my non-Iranian side, my maternal lineage has lived on the American continent since the last ice age.

5) Where do you live in the United States?
- West coast.

6) Do you live in the United States?
- Redundant question. See above.

7) Are you an American Citizen?
- I am a native son. That is to say, yes.

8) Are you loyal to IRI or the US?
- I am a citizen in good standing of both the US and Iran. (The last time I took a loyalty oath was to the US in 1978.)

9) Did you ever serve in the US military?
- I am not a US military service member.

10) Who do you consider to be your commander-in-chief as a Sargord??
- Does not apply. See above.
You see how easy that is? You see how open someone can be when they don't have an inferiority complex? These are answers offered by an individual who is well adjusted, and not filled with hate. A person not rejected by the Meehan. A person who is truly interested in fostering peace and understanding between the US and the Islamic Republic of Iran.

But hey, I realize now that y'all are incapable of this kind of thing. Obviously, a number of you suffer from real character flaws. Consider this obvious impostor, Fair. How demeaning it is to even bother with this loser...
