Divine sandstorm

This picture is the burned body of one of the 8 Americans that died during in Tabas desert.
Tabas incident, occurred in Tabas desert on April 24, 1980, is a memorable day in the history of Islamic Republic of Iran.
On April 25, 1980, the United States launched Operation Eagle Claw (or Operation Rice Bowl) in an attempt to rescue Americans held in the Iranian capital of Tehran after the 1979 Islamic Revolution ordered by President Jimmy.
However, a sandstorm struck and brought down the US helicopters involved in the operation, killing eight American servicemen.
The US Air Force, Army, Navy and Marine Corps were all involved in the operation.
Operation Eagle Claw was one of the first missions conducted by Delta Force.
The botched attempt brought further disgrace to the administration of former US President Jimmy Carter in the eyes of the American public. Many believe it played a major role in Carter's defeat in the 1980 presidential election.
Iran marks the event every year as a symbol of US failure.
