Tribunal by the Islamic Regime for the Heros of the Nojeh Uprising. Nojeh Uprising was a plan by Iranian Officers of the Imperial Iranian Air Forces and Ground Forces in the early 1980´s to operate from the Shahrokhi Air Base near Hamadan and Destroying targest of the islamic Regime including the residence of the Evil, Ayatollah Khomeiny´s house. The uncovering of the Operartion by supporters of the regime, maybe the Mojahedine Khalgh the enemies of the iranian nation brought the mission to fail and over 200 People where executed during an islamic revenge campain.
The core officers who were recruited to start the preliminary planning of the coup came from various sources: [*******#0000ff]infantry[/COLOR], [*******#0000ff]air force[/COLOR], [*******#0000ff]army[/COLOR], ex-[*******#0000ff]Immortal Guards[/COLOR], [*******#0000ff]Imperial Guards[/COLOR], and some former members of the [*******#0000ff]Savak[/COLOR] secret service. The officers were chosen carefully based on their experience and level of [*******#0000ff]nationalism[/COLOR], resentment of the Islamic regime. They were picked based on their access to military facilities, jet fighters, jet fuel, ammunition, maps, and knowledge of regime's military bases. The higher ranking officers were assigned to planning and logistics, while the lower level officers and pilots were given the task of implementing all stages of the coup.The plan was comprised of three stages: stage one was a combination of twelve-hour air assaults against military, strategic, government, and clerical targets in [*******#0000ff]Tehran[/COLOR] and five other cities followed by two dozen low altitude supersonic flights over Tehran, [*******#0000ff]Mashhad[/COLOR] and [*******#0000ff]Qom[/COLOR]. The first stage was to be followed immediately by the second which consisted of dispatching nine infantry divisions to tactical locations such as the State Radio and Television, parliament, headquarters of [*******#0000ff]Islamic Revolutionary Guards[/COLOR], and Tehran's grand [*******#0000ff]Bazaar[/COLOR].
The third stage was the most ambitious. It called for cutting off Tehran from the rest of the nation with the help of fifty thousand [*******#0000ff]Baluch[/COLOR], [*******#0000ff]Kurdish[/COLOR], and [*******#0000ff]Turkish[/COLOR] mercenary fighters brought from other side of the borders, under the leadership of an unknown national figure. The interesting and ruthless part of the third stage was to have the fighters outfitted as Revolutionary Guardsmen with a green bandana which had the words "Ya Vatan" (Oh Motherland) embedded on them. That way the coup forces could distinguish the coup fighters from the regime's forces.
The fighters' orders were to create pandemonium and confusion among Revolutionary Guardsmen and the backers of the young Islamic Republic by attacking the government forces that were dispatched from other cities to defend Tehran. There were, however, two problems with the last stage of the plan: one was the fact that majority of Baluch, Kurdish, and Turkish fighters were not familiar with Tehran's landscape, and the other obstacle was that some of them did not speak Persian.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nojeh_CoupIt is estimated that the coup cost somewhere in the neighborhood of a million dollars. The money covered expenses for traveling from Tehran to Paris and Istanbul and most of the was spent on hiring Baluch, Kurdish, and Turkish mercenaries. The money was managed personally by Bakhtiar and no one else.
It is a known fact that the coup was no secret to Islamic regime and on the night of July 18th, the Islamic regime’s president Abolhasan Banisadr's task force, which consisted mostly of members of the [*******#0000ff]Mojahedin Khalgh[/COLOR] Organization, were ready and waiting for the operation to start. Many of the pilots were captured hours before the start of the operation and other officers were arrested on the way to their bases. However it's not known who snitched and how the regime uncovered coup. The circumstances leading to the leak is by far the most fascinating part of this ordeal.
There are many different theories out there making attempts at explaining the circumstances behind the failure of the coup and its leaders. But the most intriguing piece comes from sources who claim that Saddam Hussein's government tipped the Islamic Republic a month before D-Day. It is said that Iraq intentionally reported the details of the operation knowing that the capture and execution of the best pilots and military commanders would seriously weaken the Iranian forces (Iraq invaded Iran two months later). Some even go so far as to allege that the coup was reported to the Iranian government by the U.S. to buy the release of American embassy hostages in Tehran. However, it is likely the information cam from [*******#0000ff]British[/COLOR] sources, long lasting ally of clergies in Iran.
Some believe that the success of the coup would have led Iran on the path of a bloody civil war and the assassination of Khomeini would have turned him into a mythical figure. These are legitimate concerns and yet it cannot be denied that the failed "Nojeh Coup" of 1980 was conducted by servicemen who deeply cared about their country. No evidence has surfaced so far that links the coup to foreign powers or shows that the officers had illegitimate intentions. The very fact that the coup's resources were not managed efficiently and plans were executed poorly, demonstrates the fact that the movement was most likely home-grown. Many of the officers believed that the country was heading in a wrong direction and in a desperate attempt to save Iran, they lost their lives.

Glad you gentlemen enjoyed it.
If the uprising would of followed threw the Iran-Iraq war and millions of people would not be mained and dead today.Some say Iraqi officials tipped off the Islamic fundamentalists of the plan for a coup.Most of the best and skilled pilots and units still loyal to the Shah were killed in the hundreds.Including my father
The Imperial Ground Units would of launched there attacks aswell as the Imperial pilots would attack key targets with great tenacity.
My father on the right me when i was younger on the left...he was part of the uprising...god rest his soul and the rest of the patriots.
In Memory of our Fallen Soldiers Their Memories Have Become Eternal.
God Bless them for their patriotism, and may their efforts of freeing Iran from the tyrannical yoke of the Mullah's soon materialize by the will of the Iranian Nation.
