Every delay creates time andÂ over time the Maoist thugs will win. Remember the promise thatÂ Prachandra made of an “October Revolution”.Â The communists/ Maoists of Prachandra are killing still, and anyone who steps forward to lead is being murdered.
The Iranian “war-games” appear to be a crackdown on ethnic Kurds disguised as a military excercise
The spin from IRIB, Iranian Republic Radio:

Code-named Zarbat Zolfeqar (Stroke of Zolfeqar, the name of Imam Ali’s sword), the wargames began with fighter planes carrying out air sweep operation with troops commissioned to disrupt the movement of the hypotheical enemy.
Also the Airforce delivered heliborne operations to parachutists of the Army’s ground force by Chinook and 214 choppers and quick reaction units and elite forces simulated modern battle conditions.
