IRAN MISSILE TEST BLUFF: OLD ROCKETS, BOGUS VIDEO


drudgereport.com

Many of Iran's claims related to missile tests during "Great Prophet III" war games -- appear to be smoke and mirrors!

The missiles tested DID NOT not have 2,000-kilometer range, the NEW YORK TIMES is planning to report on Saturday.

Iran DID NOT launch a Shahab-3 missile, able to reach Israel.

It was an older missile that was out of production, newsroom sources tell DRUDGE.

And a video showing what appeared to be many missiles being fired -- is actually one missile, filmed from different angles!

NYT's Bill Broad is planning to quote military insiders.

Sorry i had to post and run earlier...

The funniest part of this story to me is that i have gone through and read the threads about the recent photoshopped images of the missile launch. Now we find that this whole thing might have possibly been a staging, and that the technology claimed doesn't exist.

So what i feel we must ask ourselves is this: what is the reason?

Why stage a fake missile launch, claiming nine when there was only one launch occuring (showed from multiple angles) of three missiles being launched? Some random thoughts i have:

Is the Iranian defense capability anywhere near what is claimed (officially and unofficially)?

Are they trying to further destabilize the oil market?

Why only launch 3 and show different angles, claiming 9?

Why release photoshopped images at all through the state run news agency?

This is a VERY strange mystery, to say the least.

How nice. It looks like the grand finale at a U.S. 4th of July fireworks show. So, iran is starting to come around, then. If not, then they've stupidly shot off all their missiles for nothing ...

These fakes from the iranian government have to make us all wonder just what else being said and done by the iranians is fake.

LOL-now THAT picture looks about right!! Freaking hilarious, but at the same time, probably the the truest and actual photo of what happened. Iranian made equipment is JUNK. I mean if this is what they were showing off to the wrold stage, then i LOL at the rest of their stuff. Poor b@stards.

why? that is what i think is important.

I also think that we should go back and look at other "news releases" and see if they have a history of such bold lies.

Ahmedinejad will be an international laughing stock. I wonder if that will push the ayatollah's to give him the boot?

IMO that is exactly the reason. If their long range capabilities are much more diminished than they claim, they can still do economic damage with BS like this via the price of oil.

What I wonder is how much of this sort of thing the Iranian people support. Do they want to see the Western world living in the sort of poverty they cannot escape?

Good find, Texan.
