Shoop da Woop

Iran broke the internet the other day when they test fired their Shahab-3 MRBM which has a range covering all of the middle east, including Israel. Here is a photograph of the missile launches as seen on an Iranian Revolutionary Guard website:Notice anything strange? No, nothing? You should.

A fourth missile has been photoshopped into the picture. Well, that’s not entirely true. See, they did have four missiles to test fire, but one of them malfunctioned. Here’s the launch as seen on Iranian TV. Third from left on the bottom you can see the missile that did not fire. Only having three fourths of your missiles working isn’t very intimidating I suppose, so they thought they could just sneak in a fourth and nobody would notice. Of course the media ate it up, and they are just now beginning to correct themselves even though the image was found to be a fake almost immediately after it hit the internet.

This is another missile launch picture Iran was considering handing out to the press, but ultimately they decided against it. Ahmadinejad’s saving this one for Yom Kippur.

lil’ brother, you’re like a little black, bootleg, radical, disrespectful news network where I can go to get the “real” deal.

I realize it may not have sounded like it but that was a compliment.

I thought Ahmadinejad initially said that they tested 9 missiles along with one Shahab-3, the one that reaches Israel just in time to disturb Shabbat?

Guess that Maury and Jerry are not the only sensationalists.

why haven’t you yet joined the chorus of anti-zanu-pf journalists mr. i’m-all-about-it lewis? you know they only want some truth, just a little truth o yes dear jesus! the trubbles in zimbabwe got nothing to do with massa’s plantations, nuh-uh.

and why in the hell do ya theenk a country like iran –a five-thousand yr-old civilization (of rag-heads and goat-ropers, eh)– would try to impress “the west” with its military prowess? uh, could it be dat lil thang called petroleum?

tribalism at the national level makes sensational television look like the zenith of decency.

lordee, i hate it when u fall asleep at the wheel. but that aint 4 me or anybody 2 say

LOL That’s hilarious.


And wooooo… A functional extended-tactical-range missile.

Welcome to 1956, Ahmadinejihad.

Experience with supreme confidence the new 2009 Shahab-3.
With a blistering 610 hp and 712 lb-ft of maximum torque, the Shahab-3 sears 0 to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds. Twin intercooled turbochargers offer instantaneous response and torque delivery at extremely low revs. Shahab-3. Feel it. Live it. Love it.

An ancient blood feud 2-3 millennium in the making solved in six decades? Without concerns or difficulties let alone death and destruction? It is tragic comedy in the extreme and deserves high ranking as “The Mother of all Nigga Please(s)”. These morons need to have their little missile exchange as it is inevitable (and logical) for that to occur. Too fucking bad the rest of us need to be dragged headlong into this nefarious and deadly valley populated by the worst of trolls.

whether or not it is clear to you,no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

so you might as well go long on oil. (maybe cover yourself with a put)

only the irani’s would be dumb enough to think they could photoshop a picture of missiles and think they could get away with it..dumbfucks

When in the presence of your discerning peers, removal of your iron shirt is apparently not advisable..

I just have to wonder if that kind of thing happens in the news WAY more than we imagine.


Svetlana Alliluyeva
said…

um. I’m a little offended by granny’s comment. That’s a little harsh. Actually probably more than a little.


Omar
said…

Hmmm, puts my ‘Trolls of the Fertile Crescent’ in a whole new light..

One Hundred Thousand Pardons if I have offended in any way!

svet–

something you may realize by and by is that one accrues an ironic type of honor to be insulted by ignoramuses.

unlike iran, the state of texas has never distinguished itself in the production of intellectual lights; it is in fact an american backwater– cultural retadation writ geographically large, self-proclamatory like a rooster crowing from atop its own pile of shit.

don’t worry about it.

sorry granny. it had to be said


Svetlana Alliluyeva
said…

=/

Just a little offensive. *cough*
Especially considering I am Iranian (Alas Russia was a guise) and thus a “dumbfuck.”


Raspootin
said…

sorry granny. It had to be said

Bull shit 🙂

I like YDgrand and everyone regardless from where they are from should have a say in an open forum.

I have had a lot of insults directed at me, well deserved no doubt; but what you just said is: ”well it has to be said” unokhan: rather idiotic.
Let s face it; ya think Louisiana is any better than Texas or any other frickin state on the US? Oh I m sorry you just think you are better, my mistake.

true, there was no point n my last sentence– some things are just understood and don’t require parenthetical remarx.. it’s not about me or you or yellow. it’s about being patsies 4 the cheney clique. and raspy, i’d be willing to bet pilgrim’s 5 bux u were a cheerleader 4 them in 03

That’s the thing that I can’t get my head around. There is nothingwrong with the Iranian people. They, individually, are easily as cool as any Egyptian or Saudi …

But to be in the Iranian government, the higher up you go, the more insane you must be — until, at the highest posts — you must be mad as a fucking hatter (18th Century hat makers used nasty mercury compounds to felt the leathers for fine hats and destroyed their brains).

And this is the Iran we have to deal with o_O


PS: Flipping middle finger to anybody who said anything bad about Texas.

Well, if Austin attacks Tehran, I’m afraid my loyalties shall lie with the ancient rather than the modern. I do not believe for a second the feeble message I am fed daily as to the dangers this nation presents to me and my well being. And as far as Israel is concerned, well, I think I’ve been clear as to where I stand on that mouldy brouhaha. Old tribal feuds are best left to those who are historically and geographically bound to make their peace. Israel and Egypt come readily to mind. If it were not for big oil (Iran) and the Holocaust (Israel), we would be concerned not at all.


unokhan

my point:

1) trash talk costs nothing, leads nowhere, and dirties up the place. that’s why it’s called trash talk.

2) if you’re gonna dish it out, you’d best be able to take it.

Save da drama fo yo mamma.

My mama? Leave Passive-Aggressive Psychopath out of this.

To think that Austin would attack anything would mean that you had never been to Austin. It’s the city where all the Hippies went to retire and all their kids stayed to smoke weed.


unokhan
said…

true, dat. back in the day austin was called “Lotus Land” becoz anybody who went there from someplace else never wanted to leave


Gadfly

But YDG, please chill on the “dumbfucks” collective thing. That made my teeth itch too. And you know I try to love any cranky Bush-hating Democrat like you 😉

(for any historians, yes, I gave him enough rope to hang himself. He did.)
