Looks like someone has been playing with the "Clone Tool" in Photoshop.
As an avid and experienced user of photo/video editing software this was a real find. I do have to say it's a really really PATHETIC job. A 6 year old could do better than this.
Noted document debunker Charles Johnson has noticed something peculiar about one of Iran's bits of official propaganda following Wednesday's missile launch.Unless Iranian missile exhaust tends to form remarkably regular patterns, someone's been busying himself with the clone tool.
See LGF for the original hi-res image with some of the curious regions highlighted. Suitablyflip has taken the liberty of animating an overlay based on Johnson's apt pattern matching. As a gif, it suffers some degradation from the resolution of the original, but you get the idea
This image, part of a framegrab from an Al Alam television broadcast of the launch (apparently taken at approximately the same time from a slightly higher elevation) makes it pretty clear which missile was conjured from borrowed pixels.
Here's a whole series of pics from an Iranian paper and none of them are like the Images we have been shown, however the BBC are now saying "The Iranians Doctored The Photos!
Ask yourself this..... "Why then have the Iranian's posted the ORIGINAL PICTURES on an Iranian website.
Iran claimed they launched nine and then they showed evidence of 3 lots of 3's going up. Simple math and truth. Now why would Iran suddenly want to show 10 going up by doctering one extra. Wouldn't they just Test Fire 10 or 11 or 12 if they wanted to get a point across?!? it's not like they have run out of missiles to fire now is it?
Not to mention the Iranians have already released the video. So why would they doctor an image contridictingthemselves? They have nothing to gain by doing this, but the US Government certainly does.
So we have to ask WHY doctor photographs, is it to make it appear that Iran has a bigger arsenal of nuclear weapons? to make it appear that Iran is a threat to the USA & Israel or an excuse in order to Nuke Iran.
The Times Online reports that:
President George W Bush has told the Israeli government that he may be prepared to approve a future military strike on Iranian nuclear facilities if negotiations with Tehran break down, according to a senior Pentagon official.
Despite the opposition of his own generals and widespread scepticism that America is ready to risk the military, political and economic consequences of an airborne strike on Iran, the president has given an “amber light” to an Israeli plan to attack Iran’s main nuclear sites with long-range bombing sorties, the official told The Sunday Times.
“Amber means get on with your preparations, stand by for immediate attack and tell us when you’re ready,” the official said.
This quote from the Pentagon contradicts itself...
“It’s really all down to the Israelis,” the Pentagon official added. “This administration will not attack Iran. This has already been decided. But the president is really preoccupied with the nuclear threat against Israel and I know he doesn’t believe that anything but force will deter Iran.”
Any military attack on Iran would be an act of madness.

You have to laugh at the people running this planet. They can't even get ^^^THAT^^^ right.
Your ignorance is the greatest weapon they have, because once they have your mind, you have given your power over to them. It's time to wake up. - This is some good advice
