Iran has been caught out in another Photoshop blunder in an effort to prove its purported stealth fighter jet is the real deal.

An Iranian state news agency released a new picture of the radar-dodging jet flying above snow-covered mountains.

But the picture was immediately suspected to be fake, with the lighting on the plane and its position similar to its appearance in pictures on the ground in Tehran at the unveiling earlier this month.

Weapons of mass distortion...Yeah, clearly we need to be terrified of Iran's military and technical prowess!

we americans can be so dumb

so where is the proof showing that the IRG released this image as the official proof that flight testing is underway ?

i just see a bunch of zionist controlled websites putting out rubbish articles about it.

the sydney morning herald - http://tinyurl.com/bdpjqhc
contains no actual links to the khouznews.ir article calling it a laughable fighter jet

the atlantic - http://tinyurl.com/b94ndo7
they actually have a link to the khouznews.ir website showing an
image of the plane with the tagline

"طرح/ پرواز جنگنده قاهر برفراز دماوند"
which using babylon 10 translates to:
"The flight fighters over violent Azarbayejan"

so where is the actual news article stating who from the IRG presented it to the news khouznews

if its not from press tv i find it highly objectionable.
here is press tv video of the plane being presented

excerpt from the vid Mahmoud Ahmadinejad speaking about the military developments:
"iran does not develop its defensive capabilities to violate the rights of others"

Do you see that daily paulers , When Ahmadinejad says "others" he means OTHER SOVEREIGN STATES!!!

We have never heard a single person in elected office nor in our military speak like that.

if only we as a nation and as a military respected "OTHERS"

my opinion is that all of this mess is pushed and propagandized to us all by people like Asher Moses- Technology Editor of syndey morning herald and Alexander Abad-Santos of the atlantic wire both very pro zionists publications.

the world would be better off if there was no agendas at all, but sadly iran is currently and has been smeared and removed from satellite after satellite until no voice of theirs will be heard , sound familiar people ?

I just think daily paulers should be more objectionable of where they get their news and what they spread before posting it on here because every click and every read counts towards turning the minds and hearts of men onto total war and tyranny.

one more point, who cares about images of working/non-working iran military hardware, if it's fake and phony then that's on iran because they will not be prepared for an attack, again this all just seems like a smear on iran to make people think less of them and how easy they would be to conquer.

my tax dollars need to be spent at home not abroad, thank you very much.

Some good points, and I agree....

...for the most part. Your points on doing better sourcing are well taken.

Although, I see it as more of a smear on US intelligence that says Iran is existential threat.

I agree that

Iran itself is not a threat to us. However, Iran has the backing of Russia and China - combined, both of them could smash us to pieces. Russia, I'm certain we could take on without question. China, I'm not so sure about. They've been raising a standing army for the last several decades and they have the financial backing to experiment and produce beyond belief.

thanks for the comment

but, it is not the U.S. intelligence that thinks so... hmmmm if I had a dollar for everytime i heard the words Existential and iran in the same sentence.

"He's this eccentric Ghandi-Like figure that you cant touch with the normal bribes that people respond to."
the man Doug Wead on DR. RON PAUL

Tell me about it!

It get's so annoying hearing that phrase! I just figured (perhaps incorrectly), that rhetoric from US intelligence says that "Iran is an existential threat", so I didn't think they'd also be promoting stories that suggest Iran is weak...those calling for war with Iran want us to think Iran is strong and powerful and a big threat, don't they?

Although, I guess counter to my point: We did say Iraq would be a cakewalk while also saying they were armed with WMD's....hmmmm.

Thanks for keeping me on my toes!

According to former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, deterrence is based on three main factors: military strength, willingness to employ it, and effective information transmission.

That's ludicrous

Iran wasn't even remotely involved. Iraq, Afghanistan, and Saudi Arabia weren't directly involved - they had a few citizens who joined in for 9/11; there were no Iranian citizens involved in 9/11. Propaganda at its best. Amazing.

What you wrote seems to be the case.

I wonder about Iranian disinformation

Why is it so desperate?? Is it meant to make a joke of nuclear claims as a clever misdirection? Or are things in Iran as bad as they seem. Our history with Iraq says the latter is true. Ten years working on a nuclear power plant and nothing to show for it may be destabilizing.

Where's the proof

That Iran was that one that produced these photos?

Dunno

But if not this one what about these http://www.theatlanticwire.com/global/2013/02/iran-jet-photo...
Plus remember Iran doesnt have free speech and you can pretty much guarantee any sizable business is state managed, especially press. I think the rule is you need a religious scholar on your corporate board or something.

I'll clarify.

The Australian paper fails to identify specifically which news entity publicized the photo: "An Iranian state news agency"

The photo would have been displayed on TV or via an article. Neither a clip of a video or a direct article link are cited in the article. They provide no hard evidence that an Iran state news agency put out the photos other than them stating that they did.

Actually...

...you're mistaken.

The link we posted: http://www.theatlanticwire.com/global/2013/02/iran-jet-photo...

...gives the source, but I can't copy and paste it here at the DP because of the arabic characters in the URL. But just click on the first link in the first paragraph.

It is your system that needs to include international language support of it. See your language settings for the language you wish to display.

Good to know!

Re: the language setting:

Now I can practice reading Farsi! How do you make it not cursive?

Re: Stanley Kubrick and the moon landing

Do you really believe this? I haven't done any research on this topic, though I've heard that many people doubted it. Without turning this into a moon landing conspiracy thread, what's the main basis for the questioning of the official account?

Farsi & Arabic print that way.

Ask your friends that use those languages as their own. I get into trouble just pretending I know French.

It has always been a marvel to me -- that French language; it has always been a puzzle to me. How beautiful that language is! How expressive it seems to be! How full of grace it is! And when it comes from lips like those [of Sarah Bernhardt], how eloquent and how limpid it is! And, oh, I am always deceived--I always think I am going to understand it.

Official account? You jest.

Just do a quick search. Just a few at a time. Search what you are certain about. Then add, "hoax" or something similar. You will find point vs counter point to most topics.

The more official one becomes, the less I beleive. But, that is just me... I am certain.

They should have directly linked to it

What is this? An article inception?

An article within an article within an article within an article?

They do link to it and you found it

And you translated it. Congrats.
