#Iran
The US military can destroy or neutralize the S-300, but it would need to devote significant assets and time to do so. US air operations in the Middle East over Syria and Iraq are not currently constrained by any requirement to use stealth aircraft. Because stealth aircraft have higher operational and maintenance costs and generally carry less ordnance than nonstealth aircraft, the US does not typically assign stealth aircraft to routine operations in uncontested airspace, such as the current campaign against ISIS. In the absence of the S-300 system, nonstealth aircraft currently assigned to conduct air strikes against ISIS could, on a very short timeline, be retasked to conduct operations against Iran.

#Iran
The S-300 is another story entirely. It gives the Iranian military a significant strategic advantage against regional states and significantly complicates US air operations in the airspace protected by the S-300. The S-300 is the most advanced SAM system available for export to potential enemies of the United States, and significantly alters planning assumptions for potential US military operations. The S-300 may prevent the US from attaining air superiority as quickly as it has in the past, protracting air operations and potentially increasing the risk of losing aircraft and pilots.

The S-300 system is deployed as one or more battalions each consisting of up to six batteries. Each battery can have up to eight TELs (missile-firing platforms). The number of TELs determines the number of different targets that the system can engage simultaneously or in close succession. Deploying more TELs also complicates efforts to suppress the system because they can disperse over a wide area.

With the beam, a 30 object, we created beam_region with the statement beam_region=(beamPart.ce/ls,) With the truss, a 20 planar object, we instead use the RegionO method and passing the edges as arguments.

#Iraq
While Tarbush was focused upon how and why the military came to play such a leading role in 1930s-40s Iraq, his book can be used to look at current Iraqi politics as well. Today’s Iraqi government is again dominated by individuals such as Moqtada al-Sadr, Ammar Hakim, Haid al-Amiri, Nouri al-Maliki, Massoud Barzani, etc. They each have their own political party that is bereft of ideology and largely act as vehicles for their leader’s personal advancement. The government is still used to enrich the leadership and dish out patronage. The country’s institutions are still weak, and unable to constrain these individuals, and there is still no concept of an opposition as all parties are included in national unity governments. Finally, in neither period was the interests of the public really considered. The growing gap between the people and their representatives would eventually lead to the 1958 coup. Today, there are annual protests every summer, which pass as the heat dies down. Could this anger eventually boil over to a revolution or will the politicians be able to ride out this wave of resentment?
