    I understood that the terms Pahlavani and Koshti were interchangeable, is this not so?

    Yes, that is a leaked State Department cable you just linked to and quoted (omg). You and Bullshido are now part of the infowarz.

    Seriously this is really not that surprising, Iran has this whole dual society thing going on with the theocracy using their militant right wing old guard to control the country and actively oppress the younger, better educated, democracy-leaning generation.

    I really don't think Iran has to rely on these types of "irregulars", they have plenty of excess student-bashing resources in the existing police and military forces.

    Does that mean Jesse the Sexual Tyrannosaur will be coming to me for information on Thermite Paint and Secret Societies like he does with Alex Jones?

    I was being facetious; the Varzesh-e Pahlavani is best known for ritualized calisthenics, but yes, Zurkhaneh exercises also include wrestling.

    I like that whole exercising to live drums being played while some guy chants, "death to my enemies while they swallow their own feces...".

    I feel inspired.
