Iranian army has always been woven into the flesh of the society and reflected its changes. The leaders of Iran traditionally looked at the army as on a support of their power and as a means of implementation of the objectives of domestic and foreign politics. In the twentieth century the Pahlavi monarchy has played a particularly important role in the creation of the armed forces of the modern type, which however, failed to protect the Pahlavies from any foreign invasion, nor of the Islamic revolution. The new leaders of Iran have made certain corrections in the formation of the army of the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI), which goals and objectives have become more extensive and ambitious.
