I would never sell anything to Iraq especially Koral.
Remember how Iraqi pilots fled to Iran with their fighters during Iran Iraq war.
Giving something to Iraq means giving that thing to Iran as well.

I wont trust Iraq with anything to be honest.

The Shia Arabs are aligned with Iran.

There are many more things that contribute to the succes of the TB2 platform than that meet the eye. Picking up a few good lessons will not make much difference for them. It is not some alien UFO out of this world that can give them unheard of technology.

Can Iran copy the doctrine used by the TSK which made it possible in the first place to use drones effectively in conventional warfare?

No. So who cares. There are enough TB2 that crashed in almost one piece. You think other countries didn't take a look at those? Especially Russia would have access to them via Syria and Hafter. Iran too via Syria.

You all acting as if the TB2 is a F-22 or F-35

They can copy it, if they get their hand on them. How good will the copy be, thats another question but its not exactly state of the art and what makes the TB2 a good selling product is its experience, it has proven itself as a platform and that you cannot copy.

Why give TB2 a negative spin? It's exactly because it's state of the art that it performs so well, especially against it's counter parts from more experienced UAV manufacturers.

TB2
-State of the art
-Affordable
-Gold Standard of Support
-No hoops to jump through to acquire

How many TB2 have we lost in battles, where are the copies from Russia? UAEs half-bummed copy doesn't even come close to TB2.

Doesn’t matter if state of the art or not, it works well. Only that counts. Btw, without state of the art EW, it doesn’t works that well.

Yeah, this part is important. In Libya, around 10-20 TB2s were apparently shot down until Turkish EW systems came online and only at that point did LNA start failing to hit anything whatsoever.

It's like a rifle and a bullet.

Of course not, but you need at least a high education level to do so.
The University of Tehran is ranked as among the best in the world when it comes to engineering education.

Not saying Iranians are ultra-geniuses or anything but they are certainly not too stupid to reverse engineer a drone if so desired.
