yes, I'm ignoring what these missile test mean for the region, Israel specifically.

Current Mood: amused amused

Hahaha, that's hilarious.

They didn't fix the fence very well.

I'm with the commenters: why add only one extra missile?

Smart Photoshoppers; this makes it more realistic. :)

I don't really get how the alteration changes anything. It looks like, in the original, they just hadn't fired one of the missiles yet. So?

Or it failed and they didn't want evidence of that.

Seems kind of silly though. The photos aren't exactly large enough to discern any issue with the missile itself. The most I could see this doing is to encourage a sense of false weakness.

I agree, though one would assume that, even if they fired all the ones they made, they have the facilities to produce a bunch more.

Ah, but this isn't about trying to make people think they're weak. It's about being the biggest meanest kid on the block. And if one of their missiles failed, it shows weakness, which will get them killed (or beat up, or whatever.)

Yeah, I figured that, but they should also be smart enough to know that the US also has their own surveillance satellites anyway. I don't know how accurate they are, but I think they can notice if a big truck with a missile on it did not fire, especially when they see the plumage of all the other missiles going off.

Plus, it's Iran: it's not exactly a modern powerhouse, but it still has the same safety limit that any Islamic nation has when it has a world power angry at it. They might as well be Shopping a number of construction sites to look like they're nuclear plants, while they're at it.

They probably don't have missles at all, it's all copy/pasted from "Black Hawk Down".

Laughing out loud!

I sense perhaps I am being mocked. If I were you I wouldn't do that. I have a whole army of giant killer robots that I can sicc on you at the slightest provocation!

Mine are bigger and in no way look like lego men blown up and photoshopped onto a picture of my house.
