I always think of it as Fire Ants/Army Ants, one can sting, but 20 and you have a real problem! Iran, and especially the IRGC/IRGC(N), have banked soooooo much on asymmetrical warfare that they think they can do anything with it. Historically, I think they're like the Japanese on Dec 7th, they can actually run wild and cause great damage for a week, maybe two, but after that the effort will be largely Pyrrhic. Problem is, I don't think the fanatics see it that way, judging from many of their Twitter posts...
"Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference. The Marines don't have that problem."

I was Navy, but Assigned TAD to the 24th MAU Hq in Beirut. By far the finest period of my service!
