Over the weekend Iranian snipers marched in the annual Army Day parade in Tehran in full camouflage.
HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU HAVE A SNIPER?
Iranian army sniper
When and where: now, Iran.
Planet of origin: Earth.
Language: Farsi, officially.
Average height: approximately 5ft 8in, without haystack suit.
Weapon of choice: the sniper rifle, presumably, although pictured holding the rather less precise AK-47 assault rifle for some reason.
Strategic advantages: concealment. Would be virtually invisible, for example, at a Star Wars convention, or in a vat of angel hair pasta.
