Who Knew Iranian were into “Faux”tography … Just a Few Too Many Missiles in the Pic

 

Notice something just a bit different about the two pictures below? According to the NYT’s … they are the same picture, the bottom one posted in newspapers was a fake. Wonder why we shouldn’t believe a word that comes out of Iran. It’s pretty sad when the Iranian government feels the need to digitally doctor pics as a show of force. Iran did not want to show the world that one rocket had failed … instead they embarrassed themselves to the world.

Agence France-Presse said that it obtained the image from the Web site of Sepah News, the media arm of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, on Wednesday. But there was no sign of it there later in the day. Today, The Associated Press distributed what appeared to be a nearly identical photo from the same source, but without the fourth missile.

      Maybe they think the best defense is a good offense?

      They must feel safer in thinking that they COULD defend themselves…

      If, only…

      I suppose their response will be that it was the “evil West” that altered the photo, not them.

      Or maybe it was “the great Satan” … remember that phrase?

      JUst maybe we should leave the middle east alone. We have sooooo many troubles here that a trillion dollars could have fixed. I support our country and our troops but I do not believe everything that comes out of Washington. Who is getting rich from this mess? Which country benefits from our presence there? WHose soldirers are dying there? Think about people
