"At least the ayatollah in Iran was smart enough to keep them out of the battle field in his military and only used Shia Iranians for fighting. They can never be trusted not even with fellow assyrians."
-- That's an interesting point that you make. So I moved to a Jewish neighborhood, on the edge of Beverly Hills and Los Angeles. While eating at a Jewish deli, I was asked by some one if I was Italian. I said no, Assyrian-Iranian. I was told an interesting story by this man. I checked it out. So, by 1966, the Armenian-Russian made MiG-21 (Mikoyan-Gurevich) fighter jet was knocking out the American F-4 Phantom Jets in Vietnam. Plus, most of the Arab states, especially the biggest, baddest of them all: Nasser's Egypt, was equipped with MiG-21's, as were Iraq and Syria. So an Assyrian-Iraqi pilot makes a deal with the Israelis. They fly out his family to Israel, and he then joins them by flying an Iraqi Air Force MiG-21 to Israel. They inspect the shit out of the Soviet fighter jet, then send it to the Americans, where they analyze its strengths and weaknesses.
Operation Diamond (Hebrew: מִבְצָע יַהֲלוֹם, Mivtza Yahalom) was an operation undertaken by the Mossad. Its goal was the acquisition of a Soviet-built Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21, the most advanced Soviet fighter plane at that time. The operation began in mid-1963 and ended on August 16, 1966, when an Iraqi Air Force MiG-21, flown by the Iraqi Assyrian defector Munir Redfa, landed at an air base in Israel. Israel and the United States were able to study the design of the plane.
